New MCU group addresses cost-sensitive and space-constrained applications

01-02-2021 | Renesas | Semiconductors

Renesas Electronics Corporation has expanded of its 32-bit RA2 Series MCUs with 48 new RA2E1 Group MCUs. Based on the 48MHz Arm Cortex-M23 core, the MCUs are entry-line, single-chip devices with up to 128KB code flash and 16KB SRAM memory.


The MCUs support a comprehensive operating voltage range of 1.6V to 5.5V and a great variety of packages such as LQFP, QFN, LGA, BGA and WLCSP. They give optimised combinations of excellent performance, ultra-low-power consumption, innovative peripherals and small package options. These characteristics make the devices excellent for cost-sensitive applications and other systems needing high performance and low-energy consumption in space-constrained applications. The new MCUs provide an upgrade path with hardware and software scalability, so they are the ideal entry point into the broad line-up of the company's RA family.






“The RA2E1 Group is an important addition to our RA Family,” said Roger Wendelken, senior vice president of Renesas’ IoT and Infrastructure Business Unit. “These devices are outstanding for any designer, delivering a wide-range of popular features and options for applications, such as consumer products, appliances and industrial equipment. Additionally, they serve as an entry point into our RA2 Series, offering seamless upgrade to larger RA Family devices with hardware and software scalability.”
