Enhanced ‘Lab on the Cloud’ accelerates board configuration
The Renesas Lab on the Cloud enables users to remotely access, configure, test, monitor, and measure physical Renesas solutions instantly 24/7 in a full-fledged, cloud-connected lab. It includes evaluation boards for popular devices, proof of concept boards from the company’s ‘Winning Combinations,’ and other solutions from Renesas partners.
The environment has been enhanced with new advanced GUI features and new design parameters that are designed to create a more engaging and ergonomic user experience, and offer designers greater configuration flexibility. The new user-friendly GUI introduces new parameters for control and additional results for monitoring.
The ergonomic lab layout, advanced features, and intuitive user interface make it easier for users to quickly navigate the environment. For instance, the centralized live camera feed gives users a live view of the complete lab setup and results, including the ability to zoom in and out on real-time testing and data capture readings.
Advanced implementations in test setups and control for voice recognition, mobile application, and power supply enable users to complete complex testing such as transient performance in just a few clicks of the mouse. Other new options for components include the Renesas FemtoClock2 point-of-use timing devices, the smallest and lowest power < 100-fs clock generation and jitter attenuation solution available on the market.
Providing customers with Lab On the Cloud accessibility, says the company, makes testing these high-performance devices easier than ever, accelerating designs and ensuring that even the most stringent performance requirements are met. In addition, the company has added several new sections to the Lab on the Cloud suite including timing, power supply, voice recognition and control, healthcare, safety and surveillance, industrial communication, and IEEE 1588/5G computing and communication.
The company has also introduced 14 popular evaluation boards to the Lab on the Cloud environment. The Renesas Lab on the Cloud now features 23 different boards addressing diversified application segments with a variety of devices:
- High efficiency IoT battery system
- Industrial CAN Sensor Network
- Voice Recognition Solutions
- Capacitive Liquid Level Indicator
- Multi-Purpose Air Quality Sensor Solution
- Ultra-Low Power RE01 Voice recognition for IoT edge
- FemtoClock2 Evaluation Kit
