Accelerate Performance using Micrium’s uC/OS-III HW-RTOS,
Instantiate Multiple Protocols with Real Time Automation Stacks, and
Speed Development Through IAR Systems’ KickStart Kit
The R-IN32M3 application specific standard product (ASSP) is used for real-time network communication in gateways, I/O controllers, PLCs/PACs, embedded controllers, industrial drives and countless other networked applications. The device significantly improves industrial network with optimized hardware accelerators, while reducing costs by supporting multiple protocols such as EtherCAT®, CC-Link® IE, Ethernet/IP®, Profinet®, CANopen® and others, from a single device. The exceptional design flexibility of the R-IN32M3 allows one system design to serve a diversity of networks and applications.
“Renesas helps industrial OEM manufacturers solve their connectivity requirements with silicon and software solutions that meet the stringent real-time networking needs of today’s factory equipment,” says
Micrium, a leader in real-time operating systems and embedded software, released a new uC/OS-III HW-RTOS, based on the company’s highly successful uC/OS-III RTOS. The Micrium uC/OS-III HW-RTOS implements a subset of the uC/OS-III API capitalizing on the Renesas R-IN32M3 “Hardware RTOS” features. The uC/OS-III HW-RTOS provides task, semaphore, event flags, queues and other commonly used management features and significantly increases the responsiveness to real-time events.
“The uC/OS-III HW-RTOS lets users easily migrate their uC/OS-III-based application to leverage the enhanced performance provided by the R-IN32M3 hardware-assisted RTOS acceleration,” says
The Renesas R-IN32M3 is designed to support multiple industrial protocols from a single device. On-chip slave controllers such as EtherCATor CC-Link IE remove the need for any additional licensing, or costly ASICs or FPGAs. In addition, a unique Ethernet accelerator improves networking performance for software-based protocols such as Ethernet/IP, Profinet, and Modbus TCP.
Real Time Automation, a leading industrial networking software company, has ported and pre-tested its certified stacks, including Ethernet/IP, Profinet IO, and CANopenon the R-IN32M3. “In my thirty years of industrial networking, I have never seen an ASSP controller better equipped than the R-IN32M3 for industrial automation and networking. It meets the need to provide connectivity across both the factory floor and enterprise,” notes
To speed development, IAR Systems, a leader in embedded software tools, has launched its low-cost IAR KickStart Kit for R-IN32M3. The kit contains the hardware and tools necessary to quickly evaluate the features of the R-IN32M3 and can leverage Micrium’s new uC/OS III HW-RTOS and protocol stack IP available from platform ecosystem partners.
“IAR Systems is pleased to support the entire Renesas MCU and MPU families and our message remains clear and consistent as we grow our relationship with the company,” comments
Renesas also works with a full range of industrial automation partners to support many of today’s complex industrial automation applications from PLCs/PACs, industrial drives, functional safety and industrial sensors.
