Multi-language support, integrated HMI and system control, and enhanced functional safety are among the key trends driving up demand for on-chip memory in the home appliance, and building and industrial automation markets.
Renesas has expanded the on-chip memory range and package lineup for the RX130 Group.
Designers can select an MCU with 64 KB flash memory in a 48-pin package, or 128 KB in an 80-pin package, and then move up to 128KB, 256 KB, 384 KB or 512 KB in a 100-pin package. With the wide lineup, designers can support evolving design needs using a single platform or common design as application code sizes and functionality continue to increase.
In addition to full compatibility across the RX130 Group, the new MCUs are compatible with the RX231/RX230 Group of MCUs, offering manufacturers a seamless migration path to the higher-performance Renesas MCUs for touch-control and 5V system-control solutions.
