Group to expand MCU options for servo control in industrial robots

20-05-2019 | Renesas | Semiconductors

Renesas Electronics has introduced the RX72T Group of 32-bit motor control MCUs with dedicated hardware accelerator IP to deliver the complex, high-speed computations demanded for motor control in robots and other industrial equipment. The group gives excellent performance, delivering an 1160 CoreMark score as measured by EEMBC Benchmarks (Note 1) – the highest level for a 5V MCU operating at 200MHz.

“The RX72T Group brings leading performance to our extensive lineup of MCUs optimised for industrial robotics and motor control, with built-in IP, safety and security functions, and advanced control,” said Akira Denda, vice president, Industrial Automation Business Division, Renesas Electronics Corporation. ”The new MCU group extends an easy migration path across the RX family that creates new possibilities for extremely low-cost designs in compact industrial robots, and we are excited to accelerate the deployment of these applications to improve manufacturing efficiencies in industrial environments.”
