SEGGER Microcontroller, in cooperation with Renesas, has announced the availability of its entire product portfolio for the Renesas RE Family microcontroller units (MCUs). This includes a full line of development tools, embedded software and production tools, making firmware development for the Arm-based Renesas RE MCUs fast and easy.

Development can now begin with SEGGER’s Embedded Studio IDE. It includes a highly optimised run-time library and SEGGER’s own compiler and linker. Together, these tools generate extremely small and efficient application code.

The market-leading J-Link debug probe offers the fastest flash download, including an unlimited number of breakpoints in flash memory.

On the application software side, SEGGER offers a highly efficient RTOS along with communication, security, GUI and IoT software designed in-house and specifically for embedded systems. SEGGER’s system verification tool, SystemView, proves its value during the development to reveal the true runtime behavior of the application. Upon completion of development, SEGGER’s Flasher series of production programmers make mass production a breeze.

Projects can easily be generated and trial versions of the software are available. SEGGER’s technical team and ecosystem offer full support throughout the development process and beyond.

The power efficiency of the Renesas RE Family MCUs (including the RE01-256K), combined with the low resource usage of SEGGER software, minimises or sometimes even removes the need to recharge or replace batteries. This combined efficiency could have far reaching effects; for home and building automation, smart farming, factories, a wide range of medical devices, wearable applications and more.

“The RE Family MCUs provide solutions for a wide range of IoT applications, delivering high performance with ultra-low power consumption,” said Graeme Clark of Renesas. “With SEGGER’s ecosystem for the RE MCUs, we are able to provide customers with the necessary tools for developments that contribute to a brighter, more sustainable future.”

“To build a solid infrastructure, you must begin with an unshakable foundation,” added Rolf Segger of SEGGER. “I believe that Renesas’ RE MCUs and SEGGER’s software together provide a great combination for the development of ultralow energy applications. With SEGGER, you get from project start to market in record breaking time.”
