Microcontroller product series: A large number of cores through to peripheral components of software compatible microcontroller families in various package versions and long-term availability of the products make RENESAS Electronics an ideal partner for cross-platform development projects in a wide range of equipment.
ASSP products: Additional standardized special solutions such as microcontrollers with integrated DC/DC converter, Real-Time Ethernet or FlexRay interface are available for special applications.
CPU Cores: In addition to new architectures - such as RX, V850E2 or V850E2R with impressive high computing power and data throughput, safety aspects as well as code and cost efficiencies - numerous core designs that have already proven themselves over many years are also available as foundation for the large number of microcontroller families and ASSPs. For instance, even today NEC Electronics’ V850ES core, which was introduced in 1996, can assert itself against many newer CPU architectures with regard to performance and efficiency.
CPU Core Overview
32 bit MCUs for Multi Communication Solutions - USB, CAN & Ethernet
Especially for communications a lot of new microcontrollers are available to bring the most famous interfaces like CAN, USB and Ethernet together. For the low end range, the V850ES/Jx3-H series starts with 40 pin, 16k Flash and USB, CAN is added at bigger version. The V850ES/Jx3-E series includes Ethernet, USB and CAN and starts at 64 pin. For applications where high computing power is needed, the RX621 and RX62N is the best choice.
Low Power MCUs for Green Energy and Metering Devices
Green energy devices, battery driven applications and smart metering is are an important part of the future market. With the low power solutions from Renesas, everything is possible.
