The kit enables solutions to connect to Renesas’ free prototyping environment IoT Sandbox, allowing the evaluation of cloud-based developer accounts and editable application examples. Solutions can also be connected to the Synergy Enterprise Cloud Toolbox, for third-party cloud services.
Renesas Synergy AE-CLOUD1 application example includes an MCU board with a 120-MHz Renesas Synergy S5D9 Arm Cortex-M4F MCU and 2 MByte of flash and 640 Kbytes of SRAM. The board also includes a microphone, 6-axis digital compass, barometric pressure sensor, relative temperature sensor, humidity sensor, and three LEDs. The board’s two plug-and-play Grove connectors help engineers capitalize on Seeed Studio's Grove modular prototyping system. The kit also includes a Wi-Fi board that incorporates a Qualcomm Atheros QCA4002 chip for 802.11b/g/n connectivity, plus a Segger J-Link Lite debugger board and cable.
