Renesas CK-RA6M5 Cloud Kit
The Renesas CK-RA6M5, Cloud Kit for RA6M5 MCU Group, enables users to experience the cloud connectivity options available from Renesas and Renesas Partners. A broad array of sensors on the CK-RA6M5 provide multiple options for observing user interaction with the Cloud Kit. By selecting from a choice of add-on devices, multiple cloud connectivity options are available.

To set this device up in Edge Impulse, you will need to install the following software:
Edge Impulse Studio can collect data directly from your CK-RA6M5 Cloud Kit and also help you trigger in-system inferences to debug your model, but in order to allow Edge Impulse Studio to interact with your CK-RA6M5 Cloud Kit you first need to flash it with our base firmware image.
- 1.Check that:
- J22 is set to link pins 2-3
- J21 link is closed
- J16 Link is open
- 2.Connect J14 and J20 on the CK-RA6M5 board to USB ports on the host PC using the 2 micro USB cables supplied.
- 3.Power LED (LED6) on the CK-RA6M5 board lights up white, indicating that the CK-RA6M5 board is powered on.
If the CK-RA6M5 board is not powered through the Debug port (J14) the current available to the board may be limited to 100 mA.
Connecting the CK-RA6M5 Cloud Kit to your computer
Open the flash script for your operating system (
flash_linux.sh) to flash the firmware.
From a command prompt or terminal, run:
This will start a wizard which will ask you to log in, and choose an Edge Impulse project. If you want to switch projects run the command with
Alternatively, recent versions of Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge can collect data directly from your development board, without the need for the Edge Impulse CLI. See this blog post for more information.
