Reference Design of RENESAS PowerPoint Presenter

This is a reference design of the RENESAS PowerPoint Presenter, one of the example solutions available using RL78 / G1D. It is in a format that you can use with our free DesignSpark PCB software to edit and use freely. Please refer to the end of this article for downloads of the PowerPoint Presenter project.



The RENESAS PowerPoint presenter is a board which allows you to control slideshows using Bluetooth. By installing the RL78 / G1D microcomputer on this board, it is possible to control the slideshow smoothly from a remote place with low current and low power consumption using Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE). The functions of switching to the next slide, previous slide, or switching the screen off are assigned to the three buttons on the board. As an example, you can use the PowerPoint Presenter to connect the PC with Bluetooth and use it for your own presentation.

Key features

  • Slideshow can be controlled smoothly
  • Low current and low power consumption
  • Operation of next page / previous page / screen OFF is assigned
  • You can use the PC slideshow remotely to help presentation
PowerPoint presenter communicates with PC and BLE
