Synergy™ Promotional Kit PK-S5D9

Renesas' PK-S5D9 promotional kit is a low-cost Synergy platform development package

Image of Renesas Synergy Kit PK-S5D9The Renesas YSPKS5D9E10 Synergy promotional kit PK-S5D9 is an extremely low-cost way to access the entire Synergy platform, enabling full development using the clear majority of all Synergy software package (SSP) functions.  The PK-S5D9 is a single-board kit that utilizes a 176-pin LQFP Renesas Synergy S5D9 microcontroller.  The board provides easy-to-access interfaces to the peripherals of the S5D9 microcontroller for application development. The PK-S5D9 includes four header connectors for direct access to the S5D9 microcontroller I/O pins, and connectors for USB, Ethernet, RS-232/485, CAN, and SWD J-Link® interfaces. The PK-S5D9 incorporates a 2.4-in. QVGA (240 x 320) TFT display with capacitive touch screen. As a promotion kit, the PK-S5D9 is designed to demonstrate the main features of the Synergy platform.

With the purchase of a Renesas Synergy kit, access to the e² studio Integrated Solution Development Environment (ISDE) for Synergy MCU device and software configuration plus extensive code development and debugging using the Renesas Synergy Software Package (SSP) is included. In addition, the complete IAR IDE Embedded Workbench for Synergy is included as well.  This Synergy promotional kit comes with an industry standard high speed SEGGER J-Link OB debugger as well as an integrated Bluetooth low energy (BLE) module. The Bluetooth chipset used on the PK-S5D9 is based on the Renesas RL78/G1D.  This is an initial evaluation platform that can be used to determine which kit is appropriate for further development of a product.
