Beijing, China, May 30, 2023 - Renesas Electronics (TSE: 6723), a global supplier of semiconductor solutions, today announced the release of three new MCU product groups for motor control applications, of which more than 35 are from the RX and RA families of new products. These new MCUs expand Renesas' outstanding motor control portfolio that includes a wide range of MCUs and MPUs, analog and power solutions, sensors, communication devices, signal conditioners and more.

 

Renesas has launched two new MCU product groups based on the Arm® Cortex®-M RA family. Among them, the RA4T1 product group can provide 100 MHz performance, as well as up to 256KB of flash memory and 40KB of SRAM; the new RA6T3 product group has a working frequency of 200MHz and provides 256KB of flash memory and 40KB of SRAM. Both new product groups target motor control applications with an outstanding set of features and functions, including a trigonometric function unit (TFU) for acceleration, an advanced ADC with integrated PGA, and multiple A choice of communication interfaces. These new products are all supported by the Renesas Flexible Software Package (FSP), allowing easy migration of designs from other RA products.

 

In addition, Renesas also launched the new RX26T product group of the RX product family, which operates at 120MHz and has up to 512KB of flash memory and 64KB of SRAM. They not only support 5V power supply, provide high noise immunity and control precision, but also provide TFU, on-chip timing and interrupt control functions. Users who use the popular product RX24T MCU can easily extend their designs to the new RX26T products to fully utilize the advantages of existing design software while achieving double improvements in performance and control efficiency.


Renesas' Preeminent Position in Embedded Motor Control Processing


Renesas launched MCUs designed for motor control more than ten years ago, and has delivered more than 1.1 billion embedded motor control processors to thousands of users around the world. In addition to the RX and RA product families, Renesas offers 16-bit RL78 MCUs and 64-bit RZ MPUs optimized for motor applications. In 2022, Renesas will launch the industry's first RISC-V-based ASSP for motor control.


Roger Wendelken, Senior Vice President and General Manager of the MCU Division at Renesas Electronics, said: "For many years, the world's leading suppliers of home appliances, industrial equipment, and building and office automation have chosen Renesas technology for related motor control processing. We not only It has created the industry's broadest product lineup and comprehensive technology portfolio, and at the same time delivered various complete solutions with excellent R&D capabilities, covering a series of key functions required by users.In addition, for motor control, Renesas Electronics' The product quality is also well-known.”

 

Shanxi Xiaoxin, a senior researcher at Fuji Economics, said: "With the continuous advancement of industrialization and mechanical automation technology in emerging countries, the industrial motor market is expected to grow strongly. It is worth mentioning that there are also areas such as robots, electronic component manufacturing equipment, and power tools. The huge market potential will contribute to the widespread adoption of MCU products. We expect Renesas to contribute to the accelerated development of the industry with its diverse range of motor control MCUs that can meet the needs of different users."


All of the new MCUs support the Renesas Flexible Motor Control Development Kit, which enables easy evaluation of motor control using permanent magnet synchronous motors (brushless DC motors), and also supports the Renesas Motor Workbench development tool. By improving the efficiency of motor control, Renesas MCUs can save energy in end systems.
