The main applications for the 5 V input products, currently in mass production, are smart meters and industrial control equipment for the Japanese market. The new 12 V input products are targeted at applications such as smart meters, combined printer-copier-scanner-fax machines, and handheld terminals for POS systems for markets such as Europe and Singapore. The target applications for 24 V input products will include security cameras, game consoles, and electric household appliances. Moving forward, Renesas plans to continue rolling out new power supply solutions for these markets.
