Renesas Electronics Delivers RL78/F15 Group of Low-Power 16-Bit MCUs for Vehicle Control Systems
Renesas Electronics, a premier supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, announced the RL78/F15 Group of low-power 16-bit microcontrollers (MCUs) for vehicle control systems such as body control modules (BCMs), air conditioners, and power seats, where functionality is advancing rapidly. Part of the RL78 Family of MCUs, the RL78/F15 Group is a high-functionality group that combines industry-leading low-power consumption with high processing performance and CAN communication that can be used independently for control and diagnostics. They are also fully compatible with the RL78/F13 and RL78/F14 Groups.
Key features of the new RL78/F15 Group:
(1) Expanded lineup that offers system manufacturers 127 product versions of 16-bit MCUs for vehicle control systems to choose from
(2) Complete compatibility with the RL78/F13 and RL78/F14 simplifies software porting, contributing to reduced development and certification time
(3) Improved communication functionality, including two CAN channels; ideal for vehicle control systems such as BCMs
