With best-in-class run-mode power consumption – as low as 100µa/MHz,
4.8µs wake-up time, and three low-power modes, including the lowest
power-down mode with Real Time Clock (RTC), the RX110 MCUs enable
extended life cycles for battery-powered applications such as blood
glucose meters, remote control systems or POS terminals.
On-chip clock frequency accuracy measurement circuit (CAC), which
ensures the accuracy of the MCU’s clock frequency
Data Operation Circuit (DOC), which allows for hardware-based RAM
memory testing that is used to identify a potential memory fault
Cyclic redundancy check (CRC) – a hardware-based feature that prevents
timing or corruption issues with the communication functions
The new MCUs also feature three operating speeds, achieving 1.56
Dhrystone MIPS (DMIPS)/MHz throughput and 3.08 CoreMark®/MHz. In
addition, with the RX110 Group, Renesas offers the only entry-level
32-bit line to provide a complete DSP library, as well as single-cycle
Multiple/Accumulate and hardware-based Divide capability. This provides
much-needed support for customers working in audio processing and
digital filtering, as well as sensor-based applications.
To address critical compliance regulations, such as FDA/FCC
certification and IEC60730 for enhanced safety, the RX100 Series –
including the RX110 Group – features several safety and security
functions and peripherals not available on any other entry-level 32-bit
As part of the RX100 Series, the new RX110 Group of MCUs joins the RX111
Group announced in April 2013, extending the RX Family line-up to
support applications with ultra-low power, on-chip connectivity and
cost-sensitivity constraints. The RX111 Group was the first member of
the Renesas RX family to introduce True Low Power™ with 32-bit RX
performance. The RX110 Group is easily scalable to the mid- and high-end
RX600 and RX200 Series, providing greater flexibility and an easy
migration path to higher integration levels and higher performance MCUs.
This enables embedded designers to move easily between full-feature and
cost-sensitive platforms with minimal re-design efforts and commitment.
Just like the RX111 Group, the new RX110 devices are supported by
Renesas’ extensive development tools ecosystem. This includes the
Renesas Eclipse-based e2
studio IDE and the Renesas RX compiler, IAR Systems’ Embedded
Workbench, as well as the RTOS kernels by Micrium, Segger, CMX, Express
Logic, RoweBots, and FreeRTOS. The recently launched RX111
Promotion Board (RPB) provides a unique and cost-effective
evaluation platform designed to facilitate the evaluation of Renesas'
