Built-in Code Generator Support for Latest RISC-V Microcontrollers

06 May 2024

SEGGER’s popular Embedded Studio integrated development environment (IDE) has now been interwoven with the Renesas Smart Configurator code generator. Consequently, engineers will be provided with comprehensive support for the semiconductor vendor’s R9A02G021 32-bit RISC-V microcontroller units (MCUs).

Via the Smart Configurator tool, MCU peripherals (like timers, interfaces and interrupt controllers) can be graphically configured, with source code being generated that can then be used by Embedded Studio in carrying out project implementations. Engineers will be able to take advantage of the industry-leading code optimisation offered by the integrated C/C++ compiler and sophisticated debug capabilities encompassed.

“Global ecosystem partnerships are very important to support the success of any new product," notes Daryl Khoo, Renesas’ VP of Embedded Processing . “We are excited to partner with SEGGER to provide our customers with reliable and efficient development tools for Renesas’ first commercially viable 32-bit RISC-V product, targeting general purpose applications. Together, our solutions can accelerate the RISC-V-based product adoption.”

"Partnering with Renesas on this exciting new MCU group further demonstrates SEGGER’s commitment to supporting key silicon vendors in the fast-moving RISC-V market,” adds Rolf Segger, SEGGER’s Chairman. “Embedded Studio is free for non-commercial use and can always be evaluated (commercially or not) without cost, registration, or restriction. Ease of use, small code size, fast execution speed and many other features have led to an increase in popularity with both end users and silicon vendors.”
