The RX111 also offers an extensive DSP instruction set and a 32-bit Barrel shifter – also not found in competitive M0/M0+ offerings.

The extensive DSP capabilities offered in the RX100 series make it an ideal choice for low-cost, low-power signal-processing applications.

Also available is the RX111 Renesas Promotion Board (RPB), designed to showcase RX111 low power modes, featuring Pmod and energy harvesting connectors, and loaded with software and tools.

In addition, the RX111 Renesas Starter Kit (RSK) is a complete RX111-based hardware/software platform for in-depth application design includes the E1 Debugger, a trial version of the e2studio and Renesas RX compiler and demonstration firmware.
