Learn IoT MeetUp - June 5 in San Jose



Hi Craig,

Here is the updated tutorial. This is what I’ll plan to go through at the meetup on June 5th. It starts from scratch with a clean build and it uses all 4 LEDs.



Great way to show how to configure GPIO. Thanks!


There’s a fun learning challenge with $50 Amazon Gift Card prize if someone wants to implement this before the meetup.


I’m interested in attending the workshop.


Hi Karthik,

Fantastic, you’re on the list! Looking forward to meeting you. Have you used Renesas boards before? Any background with IoT?



Hello Jesse

I like to join this workshop (second track) , hopefully still you have space. I am not sure this event is basic/first timers focused or bit advanced. I am hoping to learn bit more about hardware configuration and understanding bit more about read/understand board manuals so I can configure easily. Let me know your comments




For you, we’ll always have space. :slight_smile: I think the second track might be of interest to you. It’ll be taught by @Dan, based on the 4 LED Blinky tutorial he wrote, covering some of the work he’s done with the LCD and LED controls. I think you’ve made a lot of progress in similar areas. It’s possible that it’s not as deep as you’d like, but it may be useful to “share notes.” @craig will be there as well.

I’m hoping you’ll be able to come, and we can connect directly.



Thank you.

I will come to this event.

yes, largely I was doing with SKS7g2 board and latest SSP versions, we share notes and details.

Thanks again


Great! Looking forward to meeting you.


Getting the IoT kits ready for you!


Picking up more kits from the Renesas headquarters.


Make sure you bring a laptop


My Laptop has only 1 free USB port but S3A7 needed 2 USB port (1 power and another to program) Extra USB power port available or need to bring.



You’ll only need this if you want to program the board. You may be able to charge the battery in the S3A7 kit and power the board from the battery. to go through the Smart Garage tutorial, you’ll only need one USB port to power the board.


Thank you. I forgot that there is battery power source part of kit.


Awesome Meetup. Great pizza! Great tutorial! 5 stars!


Thanks to everyone that attended. Here’s some pictures from the event.

My First Tutorial - UPDATED

@Craig7 took the Blinky tutorial to a whole new level! Sound activated, something like 7 different registers, and apparently you can see through it. Though @craig7 says he “wouldn’t recommend driving with them on.” And, no, not developed on-site last night. :slight_smile:


Regarding @iotcommu2017’s question on advancing with Synergy. Here’s the information.

Regarding the question about how to move a custom board design into production. There are a number of companies that can help. Seeed Studio worked with Renesas on the S5D9 and would be a good place to get paid help from. I can get the contact information if you’re interested.


In addition to Seeed Studio, here’s a list of other Renesas Design house partners.
