Renesas YWireless-RX65N Smart Home Gateway Connectivity Kit

RX65N-AWS-Kit-PhotoThe Smart Home Gateway Connectivity Kit for the RX65N (YWireless-RX65N) provides a useful embedded development environment that you can use to design and build your IoT applications on the RX65N 32-bit microcontroller quickly and efficiently. The starter kit allows for easy evaluation of the capabilities of the device, its peripherals and Micrium’s embedded software components by providing a simple platform to get an IoT demo up and running quickly.

There are countless resources to build an IoT system with. Embedded engineers are faced with a large variety of protocols, cloud services, platforms, techniques and solutions to choose from. Because most of these resources seem disjointed, we put together a complete set of resources required to develop an IoT device and integrate it into a larger system.

The YWireless IoT Starter Kit includes:

The kit is pre-programmed with Micrium’s real-time operating system kernel and required embedded components, and uses the company’s connectivity stacks to connect the Smart Home Gateway Demo to the AWS IoT platform.

Smart Home Gateway Demo

Micrium has created a getting started guide is to introduce embedded engineers to the Renesas YWireless-RX65N Smart Home Gateway application. This pre-configured platform shows developers how to quickly and easily integrate embedded devices with cloud-based enterprise solutions and ERP; benefitting from the power of the cloud and meeting real-time requirements.

The Smart Home Gateway IoT demo comes preconfigured as the factory-installed demo on the YWireless-RX65N. The source code is also available for download from the Micrium web site.
