Renesas Electronics Corporation Announces New Touch Sensing Starter Kit
Apr 22 15
Renesas Electronics Corporation announced its new touch sensing starter kit (part# Y-RX113CAPT01) for the RX113 Group of 32-bit microcontrollers (MCUs), which incorporate capacitive touch sensor intellectual property (IP) that enables high sensitivity, high noise immunity, and excellent water resistance. The new kit offers systems designers greater flexibility in developing human-machine interface (HMI) applications for home appliances, industrial machinery, and others that require touch capability in rugged environments. The capacitive touch sensor IP built into RX113 Group of MCUs delivers both high sensitivity and high noise tolerance, allowing touch recognition even when the operator is wearing gloves, for instance with industrial applications such as numerical control (NC) machine tool control panels. It also provides excellent water resistance, making it suitable for use in a wide variety of product categories, including electric kitchen appliances that may be exposed to water spills, such as induction heating (IH) cooking devices or dishwashers, or products designed for wet environments, such as remote controls for bath water heaters or water-resistant TV sets. The new touch sensing development kit enables system designers to take advantage of the full performance benefits offered by Renesas’ capacitive touch sensor IP. In addition, the kit provides automatic tuning functionality that solves a key problem for capacitive touch interface development: the tradeoff between touch sensitivity and noise tolerance.
Renesas Electronics Corporation Announces the Availability of the New CC-RL C Compiler for the RL78 Family of 16-Bit Microcontrollers
Apr 16 15
Renesas Electronics Corporation announced the availability of the new CC-RL C compiler for the RL78 Family of 16-bit microcontrollers (MCUs). The new CC-RL C compiler takes advantage of the trusted RL78 MCU Group’s low-power innovations and achieves increased processing performance to respond to industry needs for high performance and low power consumption in home appliances, industrial, and automotive systems. Next-generation home appliances, industrial, and automotive systems require MCUs that deliver faster processing speeds to support the increasing diversity and performance of functions provided by these types of motor-based systems. The new CC-RL C compiler improves performance by three times (Note) compared to the existing Renesas compiler. Additionally, the interrupt response performance time is improved by six times (Note), which ultimately provides customers significantly higher performance in application systems. The CC-RL C compiler also enables longer operating times for battery-operated home appliances and industrial equipment such as health care equipment and fire detectors, offering a combination of high performance and reduced power consumption for RL78 MCU-based design. The new compiler is ideal for users working with the e² studio (eclipse embedded studio) integrated development environment (IDE), which is being adopted on a global scale. The CC-RL C compiler will be available in both standard and professional versions, with MISRA-C functions in the professional edition.
