The collaboration includes embedding AliOS Things IoT operating system (OS) in the Renesas RX65N/RX651 microcontroller (MCU) lineup, expanding online sales channels, and Renesas joining Alibaba’s IoT ecosystem.
Following the recent launch of the 16-bit RL78 MCU Family supporting AliOS Things’ basic version, Renesas is now launching its high-performance 32-bit RX65N/RX651 MCU Group to support the AliOS Things’ advanced version.
By embedding AliOS Things into RX65N/RX651 MCUs, developers can easily connect IoT node devices and gateways to the Alibaba Cloud.
The RX65N/RX651 MCUs feature integrated Trusted Secure IP (TSIP), which can implement Root of Trust for IoT devices using encryption key data protected by TSIP and a flash memory-protected authentication program.
The RX65N/RX651 security features enable customers to protect their IoT devices and firmware updates against external cyber threats. Renesas will continue to meet customer needs with new products and development kits that support AliOS Things.
Renesas is joining Alibaba Cloud University and the IoT Connectivity Alliance (ICA) to help Alibaba build out a complete IoT ecosystem.
Renesas plans to offer online and offline Alibaba Cloud University training courses related to developing IoT devices.
