Renesas Electronics has introduced a new Group of 32-bit MCUs in its RA Family. The new RA6E1 MCUs, based on the Arm Cortex-M33 core, are the industry’s first Entry-Line MCUs to deliver 200MHz performance. The new devices also provide exceptional low power consumption specifications, along with a rich list of peripheral features.
Renesas’ RA Family MCUs are differentiated by a unique combination of very low power consumption, best-in-class security options, including Arm TrustZone technology, and Renesas’ Flexible Software Program (FSP) that supports all RA Family offerings, says Renesas. The FSP includes highly efficient drivers and middleware to ease the implementation of communications and security. The FSP’s GUI simplifies and accelerates the development process. It enables flexible use of legacy code, as well as easy compatibility and scalability with other RA Family devices. Designers using FSP also have access to the extensive Arm ecosystem, offering a wide range of tools that help speed time-to-market, as well as Renesas’ extensive partner network.
The RA6E1 Group MCUs includes six different parts, spanning from 48-pin to 100-pin packages, and from 512kB to 1MB of flash memory along with 256kB of SRAM.
Key Features of the RA6E1 Group:
- 200 MHz Arm Cortex-M33 CPU core
- Integrated flash memory options from 512KB to 1MB; and 256KB RAM
- Support for wide temperature range: Ta = -40/85°C
- Package options from 48- to 100-pin
- High performance: 3.95CoreMark / MHz executing the CoreMark Algorithm from embedded Flash
- Integrated Ethernet (with integrated MAC)
- Integrated USB 2.0 Full-Speed, serial communication (SCI with flexible synchronous and asynchronous modes, I2C, SPI), CAN, SSI, SDHI, QSPI
- Integrated Renesas Timer
- Advanced Analog
All the new RA6E1 MCUs are available today. To help engineers get started with the RA6E1 MCUs, Renesas is offering the FPB-RA6E1 Fast Prototype Board with an on-chip debugger, priced in the $20 range.
