Renesas Electronics and Segger have integrated Embedded Studio into the Renesas code generator.

Adding the Segger Embedded Studio to the Renesas Smart Configurator brings end-to-end support for the R9A02G021 group of 32bit RISC-V microcontrollers for general purpose applications.

The Renesas Smart Configurator enables design engineers to graphically configure all MCU peripherals such as timers, interfaces, and interrupt controllers to generate source code projects ready to build in SEGGER Embedded Studio. Engineers can take advantage of the excellent code optimization of the built-in C/C++ compiler and the market-leading debug capabilities of the J-Link debug probes to bring their RISC-V designs to market quickly.

“Global ecosystem partnerships are very important to support the success of any new product,” says Daryl Khoo, Vice President of the Embedded Processing 1st Business Division at Renesas. “We are excited to partner with SEGGER to provide our customers with reliable and efficient development tools for Renesas’ first commercially viable 32-bit RISC-V product, targeting general purpose applications. Together, our solutions can accelerate the RISC-V-based product adoption.”

“Partnering with Renesas on this exciting new MCU group further demonstrates SEGGER’s commitment to supporting key silicon vendors in the fast-moving RISC-V market,” said Rolf Segger, founder of Segger. “With Segger’s Friendly License, Embedded Studio is free for non-commercial use and can always be evaluated (commercially or not) without cost, registration, or restriction. Ease of use, small code size, fast execution speed and many other features have led to an increase in popularity with both end users and silicon vendors.”

The  SEGGER ecosystem of development tools for RISC-V includes Embedded Studio multi-platform IDE with the highly optimizing C/C++ Compiler, the Ozone graphical debugger and SystemView real-time recording and visualization tool as well as programming and debug support with the J-Link family of debug probes.

For the production phase, Segger’s robust and reliable Flasher family of in-circuit programmers ensure a high yield rate. These production tools inherit programming support for the R9A02G021 group from J-Link. Programming external memories via the microprocessor is supported as well.
