The CONNECT IT! ETHERNET RZ/N1D solution kit is based on the RZ/N1D, a 5-port, industrial Ethernet communication SoC with an optimal balance between performance and power consumption. The chip features two independent blocks integrated in a single package – a communication block based on the proven multi-protocol R-IN Engine, as well as an application block with a dual ARM® Cortex®-A7 and a variety of peripherals.

The solution kit contains an evaluation board with two Fast Ethernet (MII/RMII) interfaces, NOR flash and DDR3 memory, a USB Device/Host interface and one USB debug/power port. Aside the board, the package contains an USB-driven IAR I-jet Lite including a 20-pin flat ribbon cable. There is a large software bundle with stacks, demo applications and drivers on the RZ/N1 Solution Kit DVD. The document set helps you get the most of the kit, starting with the quick starting guides through setup procedures and user manuals.
