Renesas Set to Secure IoT Endpoint Device Connections for Amazon Web Services

By Ken Briodagh August 21, 2019

Renesas Electronics Corporation, a supplier of semiconductor solutions, has announced its Renesas RX65N Cloud Kit, which reportedly features onboard Wi-Fi, environmental, light and inertial sensors, and support for Amazon FreeRTOS connected to Amazon Web Services (AWS).

According to the company release, the kit is designed to give embedded designers a fast start and secure connection to AWS. Using Renesas’ e2 studio Integrated Development Environment (IDE), IoT applications are created by configuring Amazon FreeRTOS, all the drivers, and the network stack and component libraries.

The RX65N Cloud Kit provides an evaluation and prototyping environment, enabling embedded designers to create secure end-to-end Internet of Things (IoT) cloud solutions for sensor-based endpoint equipment. Employing Renesas’ browser-based software, users can visualize their sensor data using a smart device cloud dashboard to monitor a wide range of applications including networked smart meters, building, office, and industrial automation systems, as well as home appliances.

“Compared to the RX65N Wi-Fi Cloud Connectivity Kit launched in 2017, this enhanced low-cost kit combines a qualified RX65N MCU with Amazon FreeRTOS connected to AWS with additional hardware, software, and handy-tools,” said Daryl Khoo, VP, Marketing, IoT Platform Business Division, Renesas Electronics Corporation. “Customers can use the kit to build prototypes and then reuse the hardware and sample software as reference building blocks to accelerate their development schedules and add more value.”
