The new RX72M solution includes an evaluation board, an operating system, middleware, and a sample software that supports approximately 70 percent of the communications protocols used in industrial network applications. This enables users to immediately launch slave equipment development, such as motor control blocks for compact industrial robots, PLC (programmable logic controller) devices, and remote I/O systems. The sample software includes: EtherCAT, PROFINET RT, Ethernet/IP, Modbus TCP, and OPC UA, as industrial Ethernet software, and PROFIBUS DP, Modbus, RTU/ASCII, CAN open, and DeviceNet, as Field Bus communication software.

Renesas has confirmed conformance testing for the three major protocols – EtherCAT, PROFINET RT, and Ethernet/IP – which represents the global industrial Ethernet market. This allows developers to reduce the overall development time – including development, evaluation, and verification steps – by as much as six months, accelerating their time to market.

The new solution will be showcased in Renesas’ booth at the CIIF (China International Industry Fair) in Shanghai, China, from September 17 to 21, 2019 (booth number 6.1, E202).

"We expect the industrial equipment market connecting to industrial networks to grow at an approximately 10 percent CAGR over the next three years, which will elevate the need for slave equipment that can be developed rapidly and that supports a wide variety of industrial networks to become a critical issue," said Daryl Khoo, Vice President of Marketing, IoT Platform Business Division at Renesas. "Designed for multi-protocol support, the new RX72M Industrial Network Solution will accelerate our customers’ global product deployment efforts."

Industrial network protocols differ extensively between countries and regions, and industrial network equipment deploying globally must support a wide range of protocols. The RX72M solution includes major protocols used in each region, allowing users to evaluate industrial network connectivity equipment immediately. Customers can focus on their own application development efforts, while strengthening their competitive edge for global product deployments.

With the new RX72M solution, Renesas provides sample software and will collaborate with partners providing sales and support mass production protocols to support customers’ transition from development to mass production.

The Renesas RX72M Industrial Network Solution provides the following items:

  • Hardware
    • Evaluation board, including RX72M MCU
  • Software
    • RX72M drivers
    • OS (µITRON) and TCP IP middleware sample programs
    • Industrial network protocol sample programs
  • Other items
    • CS+ and e2 studio integrated development environment (IDE)
    • Application notes
    • Sale and support for OS, middleware, and industrial networks from partner companies

Availability

The RX72M Industrial Network Solution will be available for customers in Japan by December 2019 with OS, middleware, industrial networks support from Renesas’ partner companies. Global access will be available by October 2020.
