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 Software Storyboard Suite 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.

Download the Crank Software Storyboard Suite security panel demo for the Renesas RZ/A1 MPU, running XIP Linux. The down package contains a PDF that outlines the demo requirement and step-by-step instructions for deployment.
