Programming Environment

The firmware for the EVAL-ADXL362Z-DB was developed for the Renesas RL78/G13 microcontroller using the Renesas Electronics CubeSuite+ environment. The links below offer downloads and installation instructions for these tools: (Global site) (US site)

Getting Started

Using the Board

Firmware Options

Analog Devices has developed firmware for implementing the following functions via the EVAL-ADXL362Z-DB:

  • Datalogger and GUI (includes real-time data viewer and tilt sensor): logs data onto (supplied) microSD card. ZIP (includes .hex firmware and .exe GUI)
  • Tilt Sensor: shows tilt measurement on E-Ink display. HEX | Source Code
  • Ultralow Power Motion switch: turns display icons on or off based on presence or absence of motion. HEX | Source Code
  • Pedometer & fall detector coming soon

Reconfiguring the Board

The EVAL-ADXL362Z-DB firmware can be rewritten using the Renesas Flash Programmer (click here for download links). Instructions for rewriting the firmware are as follows:

  1. Download the desired firmware .hex file from here. Save it in a known location.
  2. Set jumpers: J6, J7, J8, and J9 (between the USB connector and the switch) to the 1-2 position. Set jumper J2 (near the display connector) to the 2-3 position for USB power.

    :!: We know the jumpers are a pain and we apologize in advance.

    Jumper Position
    J2 1 2 3
    J6 1 2 3
    J7 1 2 3
    J8 1 2 3
    J9 1 2 3
  3. Plug the USB cable in to the computer and to the USB port on the board.
  4. Launch the Renesas Flash Programmer V1.03 (download here)
  5. Choose “Create new workspace”
  6. Input RL78/G13 in the Filter text box. Select the entry with Device Name “R5F100LJ”, and enter a workspace name. Click Next.
  7. In the “Select Communication Interface” screen, use the pull-down menu next to “Select Tool” to choose the appropriate COM port for the board. Click Next.
  8. On the “Setting Power Supply” screen, leave the default settings and click Next.
  9. On the “Setting Oscillator” screen, and select the corresponding COM port for the board. Click Next.
  10. The “Information Settings” screen shows a summary of inputted settings. Click Complete.
  11. The Workspace is now set up. Next to “User/Data area”, browse to the desired .hex file (that you downloaded and saved in step 1.)
  12. Click “Start”.
  13. When flashing is complete, disconnect the USB cable (to power the board off) and set jumpers J6 - J9 back to the 2-3 position. Leave J2 where it is to USB power, or move it to the 1-2 position to power the board from the coin cell.

    Jumper Position
    J2 1 2 3
    J6 1 2 3
    J7 1 2 3
    J8 1 2 3
    J9 1 2 3
  14. Reconnect the USB cable OR plug in the battery and turn on the switch to begin using the board.
