Cloud development kit
The two Cloud Kits – the CK-RA6M5 and CK-RX65N – enable users to connect and manage wireless IoT devices via the cloud.
Both kits incorporate Renesas’ LTE CAT-M1 module, which wirelessly connects MCUs to cloud services without a gateway.
The kits are equipped with Microsoft’s new Embedded Wireless Framework, providing a simplified link to the Azure cloud platform.
The Embedded Wireless Framework lets any network adapter securely connect to the cloud, providing greater flexibility and better lifecycle management of cloud-based products. Asset tracking, building automation, medical data management, voice command and industrial control are some of the embedded applications that can benefit from the Renesas Cloud Kits.
To ensure reliable functionality and interoperability, both CK-RA6M5 and CK-RX65N kits have been certified by Microsoft Azure. This means that the devices are validated to connect with Azure IoT Hub and can be securely provisioned through the Device Provisioning Service. Additionally, both devices are IoT Plug and Play-certified, enabling developers to integrate the devices into their solutions using pre-defined device models. This eliminates the need to manually configure hardware.
The Renesas Cloud Kits include an MCU, the RYZ014A Cat-M1 Pmod, six on-board sensors, and extensive peripherals, including a USB FS connector, USB-to-UART serial converter, two Pmod connectors, and a battery connector.
For additional layers of security, Renesas collaborated with its partner, Crypto Quantique to implement a software-based IoT cryptography platform that securely connects IoT devices to server-hosted applications on-premises or in the cloud. Hardware-based security such as the Renesas Secure Crypto Engine 9 (SCE9) and Trusted Secure IP (TSIP) driver has been incorporated on the RA6M5 and RX65N MCUs respectively.
Renesas’ Cloud Kits facilitate collecting data from onboard sensors, uploading them to the cloud for AI/Machine Learning processing and tools, and downloading the model back to the end point.
Simplified development software is available out-of-the-box, including Reality AI Tools and Edge Impulse Studio. Reality AI Tools provide a true endpoint AI for a range of applications, including anomaly detection and voice recognition. The Edge Impulse Studio integrated cloud environment enables end-to-end AI/ML development using the kits’ accelerometer for asset and package tracking use cases.
Both the CK-RA6M5 and CK-RX65N are available today. For more information about Renesas cloud solutions, please visit: renesas.com/cloudsolutions.
