This kit is an excellent tool for exploring and applying the extensive range of scalable MCUs in the Renesas M16, H8, or SH product lines. Code compatibility maintained within the platform enables code migration from low-cost single-chip solutions (Tiny, R8 series), to more sophisticated devices (M16C, H8 series), up to the high-feature, high-performance devices (M32C, SH series). The same peripherals are supported and the same comprehensive tool set is used within each Renesas platform.
Offering 128KB of program Flash, 4KB of data Flash, and 10KB of SRAM, the 100-pin M16C/62P runs at up
to 24MHz. The board includes various I/O and a built-in emulator/debugger to support hardware and firmware development. The entire kit is powered from a PC’s USB port.
The PBA1000 connects directly to a Windows PC to help design engineers analyze and develop rechargeable battery systems. It takes no more desk space than a notebook and can provide design engineers with most of the information that they can get from a larger lab system at a fraction of the cost without the hassle of fitting into the schedule of a production machine.
The PBA1000 can charge or discharge cells at up to 10A and 20V. It can charge or discharge with specific waveform profiles, collect, log and graph data, and automatically perform cycle tests with built-in charge/discharge cutoff algorithms. With the PBA1000, design engineers can quickly develop the battery parameters critical to accurate fuel gauge and charge control algorithms. Battery pack life cycles can also be evaluated.
The PBA1000 is the personal development tool that engineers have been wanting for years. Designed by battery engineers, for battery engineers.
