The S5D9 IoT Fast Prototyping Kit mounts as a USB storage device on your workstation. When you first open the box, the S5D9 board comes with a binary for Data Monitoring powered by BugLabs. To use the board with Renesas Data Monitoring, you need the Thing Name, which is in the file ThingName.txt.
When you first plug the S5D9 board into your computer, it doesn’t show up as a USB drive.
- with the S5D9 board plugged into USB and Ethernet, reboot your workstation
- check the USB cable and make sure it is a sync cable, not a charger only cable
- try a different computer and USB cable
Status of Community Tests
- Worked fine on Ubuntu 16.04 and 17.04. Detected immediately and mounted
- detected and mounted on ChromeOS on ARM
- mounted on Windows 7, but I had to plug in the Ethernet
- required reboot on Windows 10 with the board plugged in
- saw problems mounting board on Mac OS X
When I first encountered a problem on Windows 10, I checked the Device Manager to see if a driver needed to be updated. All the drivers looked fine. I noticed that the ExpressL USBX storage dev USB Device appeared in my Device Manager when I plugged the S5D9 into my computer. I decided to reboot my computer. When I did, the board showed up as a USB storage device.

I went through the schematics in hopes of finding additional information, but I couldn’t identify anything useful.
