Flasher RX for Renesas Electronics

SEGGER now ships in-circuit-programmers Flasher RX for Renesas Electronics’ RX 32-Bit MCUs

SEGGER Microcontroller has delivered the first in-circuit programmers for the Renesas Electronics RX Series of microcontrollers. The Flasher RX is based on SEGGER’s well-established Flasher series of production and field service programmers.

The Flasher RX offers multiple connectivity options to easily integrate into any production environment. On the interface side, these options are Ethernet, USB and RS232.

The Flasher RX can be operated via terminal connection (RS232) and via the flash programming software J-Flash, which offers a graphical user interface as well as a command line interface. Another option is to set up the Flasher for stand-alone operation and start programming with a simple push of a button.
The Flasher RX has a memory of 64 MB for storing the target data. The data files can be updated via an RS232 interface, via the J-Flash software or via USB using the mass-storage-mode of the Flasher RX.

“The Renesas Electronics RX devices with their highly efficient core are a very successful series of microcontrollers. As a result of the close collaboration with Renesas Electronics, we have our embedded software, debugging and production tools readily available for this new and very attractive platform,” says Dirk Akemann, Partnership Marketing Manager of SEGGER.

“We are pleased to have this versatile programming tool available for our rapidly expanding family of RX600 MCUs,” said Ritesh Tyagi, Director, Microcontroller Product Marketing, Consumer & Industrial Business Unit, Renesas Electronics America. "The Flasher RX is yet another milestone in our efforts to enhance the RX MCU ecosystem, providing design engineers with greater flexibility for designing, and programming, their solutions using RX600 microcontrollers."
