"Software & Tools" tab on each "MPU & MCU" product page (see example) provides lists of development environment products for your target Renesas' MPU/MCU

Switching display mode

The Software and Tools tab has two display modes: Promote Products Only (the default view), and All Products. You can switch to the mode that works best for the content you are viewing.

"Show All Products (Include Discontinued products)" (See A in figure below)
A full list including discontinued products will be shown. This link will appear on each product classification table only by the presence of discontinued products.
"Show Promote Products Only"
Clicking here takes you back to the default view which shows software and tools recommended for new designs.

Types of product lists

Entry Tools
The most basic development environment products. For example, a Renesas Starter Kit including a CPU board allows you to start the development right away.
Standard Tool Chain
A suite of tools used to design, debug and program embedded applications.
You can choose the debugging environment according to circumstances from simulators, OCD emulators, full-spec emulators, and others, so that you can construct the most suitable environment depending on needed functions and development scales.
Embedded Software
Embedded Operating Systems, middleware, sample codes, and device drivers that correspond to the appropriate MCU group. Not only the functions and performance of the application, it will also assist increase the development efficiency.
Evaluation Boards
Board products which are helpful in the evaluation of Renesas' devices and prototype development.
