automation, including a next-generation smart thermostat with wireless
communication capabilities powered by a low-power Renesas RL78 MCU and
Gainspan wireless SoC. The demo will highlight the ability to control the
thermostat locally through buttons or remotely via Wi-Fi from a smart
*Energy Harvesting: The award-nominated Future Electronics Energy
Harvesting Platform featuring RL78 MCU will highlight Renesas’ mixed
signal technology that delivers the highest power density available in
Point-of-Load Solutions. The demo will showcase the platform’s modular
design, which allows users to switch from a solar energy source, to any
other method of harvesting, utilize different electrical storage and
recharge methods, and also allows for different application boards.
*Low-Power Charging: Highlighting Renesas’ low-power solutions for portable
consumer applications, this demo will showcase USB battery-charging
capabilities with support for multiple charging sources. Featuring the new
low-power RL78/G1C MCU with an Android smartphone and a USB
BC1.2-compliant battery charger, the solution will demonstrate dual USB
port with battery-charging capabilities for host and device
configurations, fully compatible with an android open accessory (AOA).
*MICON Car Rally: This demo will showcase Renesas’ high-performance RX,
low-power RL78, and R-Car technologies in a short track car rally.
