Memory MCU Exploits 28-nm Embedded Flash Technology

Renesas Electronics unveils what it calls the industry's first on-chip flash memory microcontroller (MCU) using a 28 nanometer (nm) process technology. To contribute to the realization of next-generation green cars and autonomous vehicles with higher efficiency and higher reliability, the RH850/E2x Series MCU incorporates up to six 400-MHz CPU cores, which makes it the first on-chip flash memory automotive MCU to achieve the industry's highest processing performance of 9,600 MIPS. The series also features up to 16 MB of integrated flash memory as well as enhanced security functions and functional safety.


RH850/E2x MCU Series features include:
