Renesas Electronics Europe GmbH Key Developments

Renesas Electronics Europe Delivers RL78/I1C Group of Microcontrollers for Smart Meters

Renesas Electronics Europe delivered RL78/I1C Group of Microcontrollers for Smart Meters. The new RL78/I1C MCUs are available in seven versions, with on-chip memory capacities ranging from 64 kilobytes (KB) for low-end single-phase meters, 128 KB for high-end single-phase meters, and 256 KB for three-phase meters; and package pin counts from 64 pins for space-saving needs, 80 pins for single-phase meters aimed for use in emerging countries, to 100 pins for single-phase meters aimed for use in advanced applications.

Renesas Electronics Europe and Giesecke & Devrient Collaborate on Industrial Anti-Counterfeiting Solutions

Renesas Electronics Europe and Giesecke & Devrient announced its collaboration for industrial security solutions and services. The two technology partners' first solution, demonstrated at the SPS IPC Drives in Nuremberg, focuses on anti-counterfeiting solutions for industrial products. The solution is designed to protect industrial companies against counterfeiting and to further strengthen their security measures. It contains Trusted Service Manager (TSM) technology from G&D and special chip activation technology on the Renesas RZ/T device. The solution will be demonstrated by Renesas at the SPS IPC Drives Fair in Nuremberg, November 24-26, on stand 6-445.

Renesas Electronics Europe and Port GmbH Announce Availability of CANopen Protocol Stack for Latest Renesas' 32-Bit RX231 MCU Group

Renesas Electronics Europe and port GmbH announced the availability of a highly efficient CANopen protocol stack for Renesas' smart 32-bit RX231 MCUs. Renesas ported the widely used and popular CANopen software stack in cooperation with its business partner port GmbH. The Renesas RX231 series offers a family of devices with large on-chip SRAM of up to 64 KB and up to 512 kB of on-chip flash, paired with one Controller Area Network (CAN) interface, which is fully compliant with the CAN 2.0B and the ISO11898-1 (standard and extended frames) standards, and is therefore well-suited to industrial and consumer applications requiring CAN interfaces. The embedded CAN module on the RX231 includes 20 buffers, 16 of which can be programmed to be shared between receive and transmit functions, creating 2 receive FIFO's and a transmit FIFO. A powerful acceptance filter selects which messages to receive according to 16 receive rules allowing the user a great deal of flexibility in creating incoming message handling strategies. The CAN modules can interact with Renesas' RX CPU by using different interrupts such as reception complete, transmission complete, receive FIFO, transmit FIFO, and error interrupts. The CANopen stack follows the strict and very efficient coding and documentation standards established by port GmbH. These standards result in a very small memory footprint (less than 19 KB Flash /3 KB RAM) as well as a high execution speed and easily readable code. For easy implementation, port GmbH offers board support packages for the standard Renesas Starter Kits. Further PORT GmbH offers CANopen training, integration workshops and "be up to date" service maintenance agreements. The RX231 MCU Group with embedded CAN comes in 48-pin to 100-pin packages with on-chip flash memory of 128 KB to 512 kB and 32 KB to 64 KB of on-chip SRAM. The RX231 MCU Group offers a maximum operating frequency of 54 MHz. As part of the enhanced RXv2 CPU core architecture, the RX231 incorporates an on-chip 32-bit multiplier, single-precision floating-point unit (FPU) and a 32-bit enhanced barrel shifter for dramatically improved operation processing performance.
