Storyboard + Renesas RZ/A1 Running XIP Linux

This demo showcases home-security and washing machine applications built with Crank Storyboard for the Renesas RZ/A1 MPU running XIP Linux. The video shows the applications running directly on hardware, with touch interaction. 

Storyboard made something possible that none of our competitors can come even close to reproduce.

XIP Linux Crank GUI Demo for the RZ/A1 RSK Board

This demo illustrates the caliber of human-machine interface (HMI) application that can be developed using Crank Storyboard and execute-in-place (XIP) Linux on the Renesas RZ/A1 microprocessor (MPU). The Renesas RZ/A1 MPU’s unique architecture – with up to 10 megabytes (MB) of on-chip RAM and the ability to execute in place from inexpensive QSPI flash memory – eliminates the need for SDRAM from Linux systems, enabling high performance, low-cost systems and simple board design.
