Synergy Development Kit DK-S7G2

Renesas Synergy™ DK-S7G2 development kit with a SEGGER J-Link OB debugger and an integrated Bluetooth® low energy (BLE) module

Image of Renesas' Synergy™ Development Kit DK-S7G2Renesas' DK-S7G2 development kit provides a complete basis for hardware and software development using the Synergy Platform. The kit is host to a Synergy S7 series MCU from the S7G2 group, today’s flagship Synergy MCU device. The DK-S7G2 kit was designed from the beginning with ease of use in mind having automated blocks of signal routing on-board including a quick check through LEDs if routing is correct for the desired macro functions, providing error-proof configuration. DK-S7G2 kits are comprised of two circuit boards: the upper board hosting the MCU, and the lower board for signal expansion and to implement special functions. This partitioning is very convenient to access all the MCU functions and pins, plus the lower board can be replaced with a own custom board for rapidly prototyping the specific end product. Expansion capability is designed into this kit with many connection points plus industry-standard PmodTM connectors for attaching a variety of multi-function boards on the market, or for connecting custom boards.

The kit provides no-fee access, to the e2 studio Integrated Solution Development Environment (ISDE) for Synergy MCU devices and software configuration, plus extensive code development and debugging using the Renesas Synergy Software Package (SSP). Also included is a GCC C-compiler at no fee.

The S7G2 MCU has inherent features to support vibrant graphical user interface (GUI) applications. This kit supports GUI development with a WQVGA color LCD module with touchscreen, plus access to the GUIXTM Studio desktop design tool to create UI graphics and flow before compiling to the MCU target.

Full access to S7G2 MCU connectivity features such as dual Ethernet, USB-FS Host and Device, and CAN, are supported. Multimedia interfaces, such as VGA camera and a full-size SD card, are also supported.

All Renesas Synergy development kits come with an industry standard high speed SEGGER J-Link OB debugger as well as an integrated BLE module.

The Renesas Synergy Software Package (SSP) is currently available only to customers in the Americas, Europe, and the United Kingdom. For information about SSP availability in other regions, please contact your local Renesas representative.
