IAR Systems Accelerates Development of Smart Factory Applications Based on Renesas’ R-IN32M4

Tokyo, Japan / Uppsala, Sweden—November 11, 2020—IAR Systems®, the future-proof supplier of software tools and services for embedded development, today announces the availability of the new evaluation kit IAR KickStart Kit™ for Renesas’ R-IN32M4-CL3, assisting developers in development and evaluation of R-IN32M4-CL3 IC for industrial Ethernet communication which support CC-Link IE TSN targeted for smart factory applications.

The CC-Link IE TSN is an open Industrial Ethernet (IE) technology from CC-Link Partner Association. It combines gigabit Ethernet bandwidth with Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN). Renesas’ R-IN32M4-CL3 is tailored for CC-Link IE TSN and meets TSN specifications of less than one-millionth of a second time synchronization accuracy between applications. The flexible design of R-IN32M4-CL3 allows one system to serve a diversity of networks and applications, which boosts overall factory productivity.

IAR KickStart Kit for R-IN32M4-CL3 includes everything developers need to get started evaluating and developing applications based on R-IN32M4-CL3, including a R-IN32M4-CL3-based evaluation board
