RX63N RDK board layout Block Diagram PC connection

The Renesas Demonstration Kit (RDK) for RX63N is an evaluation and demonstration tool for Renesas RX63N microcontrollers. The goal is to provide the user with a powerful debug and demonstration platform targeted at common applications. The board also provides a useful platform for evaluating the Renesas suite of development tools for coding and debugging, using the High-performance Embedded Workshop (HEW) IDE as well as programming the device using the on-board SEGGER J-Link JTAG debugger.

The Renesas Demonstration Kit for RX63N is also the hardware platform that is included in a special RX63N-specific edition of Micrium's book on the µC/OS-III Real Time Kernel. The book and board combo targets serious programmers and college students who need to understand and create programs based on the timesaving features of a real-time kernel. Part I of the text covers the internals of the new µC/OS-III real-time kernel. The emphasis is on the internals, features, API calls, and where and how to use an RTOS, all presented in a clear and useful way, and accompanied by a wealth of diagrams. Part II provides specific examples for using µC/OS-III on the new Renesas RX63N microcontroller.

When you would like to start software development or MCU evaluation, please access to Design Support.

AWS IoT Starter Kit

This Renesas RX63N RDK IoT Starter Kit Powered by AWS (part# YRDKRX63N-AWS) is based on the same hardware as used in the standard Renesas RX63N RDK kit (part# YRDKRX63N) and adds example software using Micrium Spectrum to connect to Amazon Web Services.

The Renesas RX63N RDK IoT Starter Kit Powered by AWS uses a 32-bit RX63N microcontroller running at 100MHz, includes 2MB flash, and comes packed with a range of connectivity and analog peripherals. The kit is pre-programmed with Micrium's Smart Home Gateway example project which uses Micrium Spectum software to connect to AWS IoT Cloud Platform. Other example projects for the kit making use of on-board sensors can be downloaded from Micrium's website on These various example projects enable the user to quickly evaluate and prototype IoT applications.
