92 mm × 42 mm × 15 mm
E8a's plastic case is made from a biodegradable material. (a vegetable-based polylactide [PLA])
Complete debug functions
- Real-time emulation possible even at highest CPU operating frequency. Ample built-in Break and Trace functions for Tiny MCU System developments.
- Memory expansion mode is supported. (Device Permitting)
- See Specifications for further details.
Close to target system actual evaluation
The user system can be debugged in conditions as close as possible to the end-product.
The debugger ensures high-efficiency debugging with a dedicated window for setting Break-points and Break conditions, trace data window display and command line functions. High-speed downloading of a load-module file also supported.
High-performance Embedded Workshop (Renesas IDE) offers seamless support for system development
The High-performance Embedded Workshop IDE brings the debugger component, compiler toolchain and some FLASH programming capability together within a single application environment, there is no need to keep launching different applications - the IDE takes care of it all.
USB bus-powered: no external power supply required
The host PC supplies power to the E8a via the USB bus meaning no external power supply is necessary. Use it anywhere, anytime. Power can also be supplied on to the user system from the E8a emulator.
The E8a can be used as a FLASH memory programming interface in conjunction with the Flash Development Toolkit.
E7/E8 compatibility means smooth environment migration
No special adjustments are necessary to connect to any system designed to connect to the predecessor E8 or ancestor E7 debug modules, the E8a will slot directly into such designs, an example of this is the Renesas Starter Kits (RSK) which will work just as well with E8a as with an E8.
