COMPUTEX Introduction of CEV-RZ/A1L
- Low-cost evaluation board based on RZ/A1L -

On-board Smart Analog! Full-featured Linux development environment!
Evaluation board for remote control, monitoring, and collection of data from sensors through networks

The CEV-RZ/A1L is an evaluation board based on the Renesas Electronics RZ/A series RZ/A1L processor, 32 MB of SDRAM, a temperature sensor, Ethernet, and a USB connector.
The RZ/A series CPU is capable of high-performance processing at more than 300 MHz and supports the use of general-purpose operating systems, such as Linux, with its ARM Cortex-A9 core and high-capacity RAM.

The U-Boot program is preloaded into the boot serial flash memory on the board. By connecting this board to your PC through a serial console with a USB cable, you can immediately evaluate the CPU and peripheral I/O devices by issuing commands. The Linux SDK (a development environment), including samples and compliers for the board, can be downloaded free of charge.
With the built-in Renesas Electronics analog IC Smart Analog, you can also change the configuration and properties of the analog and sensor circuits by changing the software settings, resulting in the easy evaluation of analog circuit design.
The Linux SDK includes applications for the remote control, monitoring, and collection of sensor information through either a wired or wireless LAN.
