Renesas Electronics has announced a new design environment for its RZ/A1 microprocessors (MPUs) to simplify and accelerate the development of rich human-machine interface- (HMI) and camera- and GUI-based applications.

Featuring the new RZ/A1 Software Package, the integrated design environment offers a complete starting point for RZ/A1-based HMI and camera-GUI design, significantly reducing the complexity and resources required to develop these applications. The RZ/A1 Software package incorporates familiar and easy-to-use design characteristics of the microcontroller (MCU) design environment to ease the transition path for designers who are migrating to a rich and more complex MPU design environment. The RZ/A1 MPUs pack up to 10MB of on-chip SRAM, a built-in memory management unit, and a powerful Arm Cortex-A9 core. Pre-integrated with the RZ/A1 MPUs, the new design environment combines everything needed to immediately begin HMI design work. The RZ/A1 Software Package is a fully integrated software package that includes a real-time operating system, drivers, middleware, and sample applications for camera-GUI-display implementation. It also includes an SDK for camera input, LCD output, and image adjustment, tools allowing camera/display adjustments to be configured graphically with real-time feedback, and is seamless integrated with the TES Guiliani GUI framework, enabling designers to create GUIs for embedded systems within minutes.

In addition to the software quick start, the RZ/A1 MPUs and the RZ/A1 Software Package offer a streamlined PCB layout with quad flat packaging (QFP) and easy power and clock design, as well as a familiar debugging and development experience for designers migrating from MCU to MPU environments. XIP (Execute-in-Place) Linux with QSPI flash memory allows the RZ/A1 Series to add MCU-like boot-up times to the MPU-level performance.
