Renesas Electronics America Inc., Intrinsic ID, and Medium One, collaborateon the RX231 Wi-Fi Cloud Connectivity Kit. Based on Renesas’ RX231 Group of 32-bit microcontrollers (MCUs), the kit incorporates Intrinsic ID’s “root-of-trust” SRAM PUF technology and Medium One’s cloud services and IoT workflows. This combination provides developers with an easy method to evaluate the IoT capabilities of RX231 MCUs and on-chip peripherals with an out-of-the-box platform for home appliances, industrial automation, and medical applications.
The Renesas RX231 Group of MCUs provides the framework of the new RX231 Wi-Fi Cloud Connectivity Kit. Featuring a 32-bit RXv2 CPU core with improved DSP/FPU and low-power consumption technology, RX231 MCUs allow designers to realize extreme power efficiency for their IoT applications. The kit comes pre-programmed with an IoT Authentication demo that provides users with firsthand experience at establishing a root of trust for their systems. The kit uses state-of-the-art Intrinsic ID PUF technology working in conjunction with hardware-based Trusted Secure IP and the security functions available in the Renesas RX231 MCUs and powered by Medium One’s cloud-based computing and data intelligence platform. The RX231 Wi-Fi Cloud Connectivity Kit also comes pre-programmed with a Smart Machine demo that allows developers to easily set up a cloud platform with dashboards and analytics for streaming real-time data to their account.
The RX231 Wi-Fi Connectivity Kit, part number YWIRELESS-RX231, is available now through Renesas and can be ordered directly from Amazon.com. Price is $59. Learn more at:
