Renesas Electronics Corporation announced two new cloud development kits, providing a complete connectivity solution for the RA and RX Families of 32-bit microcontrollers. In addition, the cloud kits are the first to use Renesas' RYZ014A Cat-M1 module. This certified LTE cellular module enables MCUs and cloud services to establish a wireless connection rapidly and securely without a gateway.
Without creating sophisticated circuitry and software stacks, customers may swiftly develop IoT cloud-based products and solutions using these cloud kits. Kits include the RYZ014A Cat-M1 PmodTM module, several sensors, a high-performance MCU, hardware-based security, and a dependable software stack.
The cloud kits are compatible with worldwide cloud service providers, including AWS Cloud and IoT services. Both kits are intended to operate on AWS (Amazon Web Services) FreeRTOS with FSP (Flexible Software Package) for CK-RA6M5 and RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) for CK-RX65N. (RX Driver Package). Once linked to AWS IoT Core, the kits have access to a vast array of AWS Cloud and IoT services for data analytics and IoT device management.
In addition to the Cat-M1 RYZ014A wireless module, the kits include an Ethernet option for connecting to the cloud securely when the Cat-M1 network is unavailable. Renesas intends to expand its wireless connection offerings soon. These kits will also be available as part of the Quick-Connect IoT Platform from Renesas, which combines standard hardware and software building blocks to enable quick prototyping IoT systems.
