Renesas HMI RZA1 Solution Kit. An excellent choice for Human Machine Interface (HMI) projects requiring a high end GUI (Graphical User Interface) is the highly integrated RZA1 group of microprocessors. Featuring a 400MHz ARM A9 core that delivers 1000DMIPs, these MPUs are capable of displaying WXGA (1280 x 768 pixels) images without external SDRAM thanks to a massive 10MB on-chip RAM. Syytem costs are lowered further by an integrated advanced graphics display controller.
But the MPU alone is not much use. A GUI software is required to make the HMI solution state of the art. Therefore Renesas has teamed up with our Alliance partners to develop a unique GUI solution package enabling a quick and easy evaluation of the leading GUI software packages on the market, all running on the RZA1. With just a simple click of a button, you will be able to view and evalaute graphics packages from leading suppliers such as Express Logic (GuiX), Segger (emWin), IS2T (MicroEJ JVM), TES (Guiliani), Draupner (TouchGFX) and Micrium's C/GUI, as well as free software from Renesas such as our simple driver software and our graphics acceleration software.
Please note that this is an evaluation kit only. It facilitates very fast evalution of possible GUI options, however most of the options will require an additional license for production use. It does however include the RZA1 RSK and TFT display board, as well as the J-Link Lite debugger (e2studio) which can be re-used by you throughout your development.
