Renesas Board RL78/G14 + Components + Manual (English/German)
With each new project, new components and software functions are introduced, which in the end come together to create a fully functional, running embedded system.
You can develop eight realistic applications with this package – from a flashing light to a weather station with display. No previous experience is required, and there is a very steep learning curve. There are optional extensions to each of the individual projects, and you can basically always determine how much theory you need.
At the centre of each embedded system there is always a processor or a microcontroller which responds to inputs – in our case this is the Renesas 16-Bit-RL78/G14 microcontroller. Its peripheral equipment and the free e²studio IDE with automatic Code Generator offer the developer numerous new possibilities which are easy to implement due to the development environment.
Demanding sections of the programme are explained with meaningful flow diagrams.
The modular project set-up is demonstrated in the circuit patterns.
Having looked at the kit, it consists of four valuable parts: How to install and use the tools, The Renesas board, the additional kit parts including good descriptions, and examples how to use the parts of the kit a combination to recommend - there should just be a website somewhere for additions.
