Renesas Technology to develop new CPU architecture for microcontrollers

Renesas has announced that it is in the process of developing a new CPU architecture that will provide revolutionary enhancements over previous generation microcontrollers (MCUs) in code-efficiency*1, processing performance (MIPS/MHz), and power consumption. Based on the new architecture, Renesas will offer two CPUs to address 16- and 32-bit markets, while maintaining compatibility with Renesas’ existing MCUs. The architecture will provide upgrade paths for both markets, delivering a powerful and compelling system solution for Renesas’ MCU customers.

Renesas ships billionth Flash MCU unit

Renesas Technology has announced that it has become the world’s first company to ship more than 1 billion microcontrollers with on-chip flash memory (flash MCUs). Renesas Technology is the No. 1 supplier* of flash MCUs worldwide, and MCUs are positioned as the company’s core product. Flash MCUs are known for their superiority because of their easy re-programmability of on-chip flash memory. Microcontrollers with on-chip flash help shorten development time and offer flexibility since they can be re-programmed even after the MCU has been mounted on the product. This makes them suitable for use as control MCUs in a wide variety of products.

Security certifications for smartcard controllers confirm resistance to attack

 Security certifications for smartcard controllers confirm resistance to attack
Renesas Technology’s AE-5 32-bit smart card microcontroller family has received a further two ‘Common Criteria’ security certifications. These certifications are at assurance level EAL4+ according to the ISO/IEC 15408 international standard relating to security of IT (Information Technology) products. These latest results confirm Renesas' commitment to developing ICs for a wide range of security-conscious applications. In today's global environment, security assurance is increasingly sought in a growing range of markets and applications: companies and end-users alike demand confidence that their information and details are available only to the authorised user and that they cannot be misused. In support of these requirements, Renesas continues to introduce new members to its popular AE-5 series, certified to the highest level of resistance to attack possible under the Common Criteria scheme.
