Renesas Electronics and Segger collaborate on GUI software for HMI
Customers of Renesas Electronics and Segger can design human machine interface (HMI) with license-free emWin GUI software, following a collaboration between the two companies.
Engineers that develop an HMI, or any commercial system based on an RX65N/RX651 microcontrollers (MCUs) will receive a free license to use the emWin library version, including its full suite of tools.
The emWin embedded GUI software is compatible with single-task and multi-task environments using a proprietary operating system, or with any commercial RTOS such as Segger´s embOS. Designed for low power consumption, embOS can be used in any battery-powered application. EmWin, says Segger, is a de-facto industrial standard, which can be found in all market segments, including industrial, medical, consumer, smart home, white goods, and automotive.
The RX65N/RX651 MCUs combine an enhanced RX CPU core architecture and 120MHz operation to achieve processing performance of 4.55 CoreMark/MHz. The MCUs include an integrated Trusted Secure IP, enhanced, trusted flash functionality, and an HMI for industrial and network control systems operating at the edge of the Industrial IoT. The RX65N/RX651 MCUs also include an embedded TFT controller and integrated 2D graphic accelerator with features that are suitable for TFT displays designed into IIoT edge devices or system control applications. Selecting a display size up to WQVGA allows its large 640kbyte of on-chip RAM to be used as display frame buffer, which saves external RAM to ensure a cost-optimised design.
Segger Microcontroller supplies software, hardware and development tools for embedded systems. It supports the development process with affordable, flexible and easy-to-use tools and components and solutions for secure communication, data and product security, to meet the needs of the IoT.
