The kit is intended to provide a rapid and secure connection to AWS. With Renesas’ e2 studio IDE, applications can be quickly created by configuring Amazon FreeRTOS, all the necessary drivers, and the network stack and component libraries.
Renesas’ browser-based software allows the visualisation of sensor data through a smart device cloud dashboard for a wide range of applications.
The board is powered by a Renesas’ 32-bit RX65N MCU, which features dual bank flash for secure and easy updates over the network, as well as OTA firmware updates. The dual bank flash RX65N MCUs also allows both BGO (Back Ground Operation) and SWAP functions. Trusted Secure IP (TSIP) integration is part of the MCU’s built-in hardware security engine. The TSIP driver uses strong encryption key management with hardware accelerators -- AES, 3DES, SHA, RSA, and TRNG, as well as a protected boot code flash area.
Key Features of RX65N Cloud Kit
RX65N R5F565NEDDFP 32-bit, 120 MHz MCU Target Board with 2 MB code flash memory and 640 KB SRAM
Pmod Module with Silex SX-ULPGN Wi-Fi communications
Cloud Option Board with two USB ports for serial communications and debugging, and three sensors for sampling and sending measurement data to the cloud:

Renesas e2 studio IDE allows designers to develop IoT applications with powerful features:
Create the latest Amazon FreeRTOS project from GitHub directory and immediately build it
Set up Amazon FreeRTOS network stack (TCP/IP, Wi-Fi, MQTT) and component libraries, like Device Shadow, without requiring detailed knowledge
Embed additional functions (based on Amazon FreeRTOS) such as USB and file-system on the IoT endpoint device
