Version 2

    We recently roadtested the Renesas Envision KitRenesas Envision Kit. The Envision Kit allows quick and easy evaluation of the RX65N microcontrollers, which are typically used in HMI (Human Machine Interface) projects, among other things. The Envision Kit allows you to experience, through pre-installed demos, firmware updating using the new dual-bank flash function of the RX65N microcontroller. Learn more about the Envision Kit by going to our roadtest page here: Renesas RX65N MCU EV Kit

     

    Our roadtest reviews are currently being written and published, so please go to the roadtest page to check them out.

     

    While roadtest reviews are a great starting point to learn about a kit, sometimes the post-roadtest blogs on a dev kit provide much more detail and interesting tips on working with the dev board. This is what has happened with the Envision Kit. Roadtester jancumps has written a number of interesting blogs that explores different aspects and features of the Enivision Kit. An index of those blogs is listed below. I encourage you to read them and learn!
