RS Components adds Renesas Synergy™ AE-CLOUD2 kit to speed LTE IoT connectivity development

28 November 2018

New development board kit uses latest cellular communication protocols for fast evaluation, prototyping and development of cloud-connected Internet of Things applications

RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc, a global multi-channel distributor, has announced that the Renesas Synergy™ AE-CLOUD2 kit from Renesas Electronics is now available and shipping from RS in the EMEA and Asia Pacific regions. The kit enables rapid evaluation, prototyping and development of LTE-cellular IoT cloud-connected applications.

The AE-CLOUD2 kit helps embedded developers to quickly and easily connect IoT devices and sensors to global cloud services via cellular (Note), Ethernet or Wi-Fi communications. It also allows them to evaluate new narrowband LPWAN (Low Power Wide Area Network) cellular radio options including the CAT-M1 and NB-IoT protocols, which have been specially developed for use in IoT applications.

The AE-CLOUD2 kit’s main processor board has a Renesas Synergy S5D9 microcontroller (MCU), which integrates a 120MHz Arm® Cortex®-M4 processor core, 2MB of code flash memory, up to 640KB of SRAM and 64KB of data flash. The MCU’s flash memory capability is expanded with an external 32MB memory device connected via a high-speed quad-SPI interface, which is ideal for the storage of graphics and other digital assets. The kit features a wide sensor selection including devices for sensing light, sound, temperature, humidity, pressure and air quality, as well as accelerometer and gyroscope measurement devices, and a geomagnetic sensor for compass navigation.

The AE-CLOUD2 kit can connect to a number of different IoT cloud platforms as well as the Renesas Synergy Enterprise Cloud Toolbox. This is a demo application that enables the fast connection to major cloud services, including Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure or Google Cloud, to display a web dashboard for visualising sensor data.

The kit can be used globally with support for Cat-M1, Cat-NB1 and 2G/EGPRS, as well as GPS. It also complies with global regulatory certifications for FCC, CE, RoHS, WEEE and Japan MIC. Contents of the kit include the Synergy S5D9 MCU board, Wi-Fi and LTE-CATM1 connectivity boards, plus cellular and GPS antennas, and USB and Ethernet cables.
