Renesas Electronics Introduces Low-Power RL78/G11 Microcontrollers to Accelerate Prototyping and Development for Compact Sensor Hub Applications in Industrial, Healthcare and Agricultural Industries

These new devices also provide a wide range of features and functions useful in a variety of applications. These include timer functions that support complementary PWM output and forced cutoff2, safety functions that can detect and diagnose incorrect hardware operation, multichannel serial communications functions, timer functions that support flyback control3, and an INTFO4 function that can directly output interrupt signals from external pins. Using the smart features like DTC and ELC5 a lot of peripherals can be connected internally to reduce CPU workload and can save overall power consumption.

Availability

Samples of the RL78/G11 will be available from October 2016 onwards. Mass production is scheduled to begin in December 2016 and is expected to reach a volume of 50,000 units per month by 2018. Renesas plans to provide evaluation boards, development tools, and software for these products. (Availability is subject to change without notice.)

1 According to Renesas research as of September 29, 2016.

2 The 16-bit timer KB0's PWM output function and forcible output stop function.

3 Operation as the timer array unit (TAU)'s two-input one shot pulse output function.

4 Function that directly outputs interrupt flags generated by timers, the data operation circuit (DOC), and other functions, to device pins.

5 DTC = Data Transfer Controller (similar to DMA); ELC = Event Link Controller (can cascade/ connect peripherals without software and hardware).
