Software and Tool Product Lineup List
You can find a list of development environment products and their support status for each RX MCU group here :
Integrated Development Environment
Based on Eclipse, an open source integrated development environment that is widely used worldwide, e² studio is an integrated development environment that supports the Renesas MCUs. It adds to the powerful editor and project management tool that come standard in Eclipse a variety of extension functions as Renesas tools that will help you shorten the amount of time needed for development. If you're already accustomed to the Eclipse environment, or if you want to use the wide array of open source tools available, e² studio is an ideal choice.
Renesas now offers CS+, an integrated development environment providing unified support for the company's MCUs with 8-bit through 32-bit architectures. CS+ provides powerful support for RX family application developments.
Ready-to-Use Starter Kits
Want to get started evaluating RX Family products right away? Renesas Starter Kits are just what you are looking for. They contain all the development environment elements needed for MCU evaluation and initial implementation. Since all of the MCU's control signals are output, the board can be connected to the system under development for easy debugging.
