Renesas Electronics will showcase its embedded solutions for endpoint intelligence at embedded world 2019. Renesas will demonstrate how the company is taking up the challenge to embed intelligence in every space to make life easier in areas such as smart living, automotive, smart infrastructure and smart factories. Renesas is also proud to present Pascal Wehrlein, racing driver of the Mahindra Racing Formula E Team, as special guest on the VIP stage programme.
Embedded developers can explore the broad range of Renesas solutions enabling embedded endpoint intelligence in current and emerging application areas.
Renesas will showcase the latest enhancements to the industry’s first full energy harvesting solution at the microcontroller (MCU) level. Renesas’ R7F0E embedded controller has achieved start-up current levels as low as 5 µA, which is 1/1000th the start-up current of ultra-low power MCUs available today. Using very little start-up current is essential for systems powered by small and inconsistent sources of energy harvested from sources such as radio waves, light, flow, and temperature difference. The R7F0E’s active current and standby current levels — both 1/10th that of conventional low-power MCUs — make it an ideal solution for battery-free products.
Renesas will display its recently launched Failure Detection e-AI Solution for motor-equipped home appliances, featuring the Renesas RX66T 32-bit MCU, which predicts failures before they occur to save costs and resources. The RZ/A2M microprocessor (MPU) demonstrates a hybrid approach to fast e-AI with image pre-processing by DRP and AI Inference by CPU.

Renesas will highlight its new RZ/G2 Group of high-performance multi-core MPUs featuring Arm Cortex-A53 and Cortex-A57 CPU cores operating up to 1.5 GHz, and enabled by a complete Verified Linux Package with 10-year support on the CIP Linux core. Renesas will demonstrate performance in multiple ways with UHD 4K video application and a video phone design. Click here for the news release of the new RZ/G2 Group of MPUs.
Renesas will illustrate how to implement KNX networks and take advantage of the flexibility and efficiency offered by modern G3-PLC (powerline communication) technology while eliminating the need for new network cable deployment for smart buildings.

Renesas extends its high-integration Renesas Synergy S5 MCU series, introducing a new entry-level MCU Group featuring a 120 MHz Arm Cortex-M4 core and advanced security, as well as general-purpose features that simplify the design of cost-sensitive, low-power Internet of Things endpoint devices. Renesas will also show its RX130 security demo with Intrinsic ID technology, which is implemented on Renesas’ low-end RX130 devices and provides customers with a security solution based on a reliable root of trust.

Renesas will demonstrate its Quick Solutions boards containing RL78 MCUs as well as analog and power devices. These assist product development by providing downloadable documents including user manuals, sample software source code, circuit diagrams, PCBs and BOMs.
Renesas will highlight the combined strengths of its MCU, analog and power expertise with the Pet Activity Monitor reference design demo. It features the Renesas Synergy S3A3 MCU, ISL9230 single-cell Li-ion battery charger, ISL9120 buck-boost regulator, and ISL28133 op amp.
Renesas will also reveal several automotive demos that support intelligent endpoints in and around the car.
