RS Components offers Renesas Synergy S1JA microcontroller
Analogue capability and security functions are integrated in the Synergy S1JA low power microcontroller from Renesas, now available from RS Components. The microcontroller is aimed at industrial instrumentation and IoT sensor devices.
The R7FS1JA783A01CFM Synergy low power microcontroller simplifies designs for a range of industrial applications including instrumentation, multi-sensory systems, headless medical monitors, and single-phase electrical meters, says RS Components.
It is based on a 48MHz Arm Cortex-M23 processor core with 256kbyte code flash and 32kbyte SRAM. Enhanced programmable analogue and security functions target sensor signal acquisition and conditioning. Integrating a 16-bit ADC, 24-bit sigma-delta ADC, 12-bit DAC, op amps, and high-speed and low-power comparators, the MCU’s built-in analogue functionality can be configured to deliver basic functions or more complex analogue blocks. This capability enables developers to reduce BOM costs and PCB size by eliminating the use of discrete components.
The low power consumption is critical for a range of industrial applications and the development of IoT endpoint devices. In software standby mode, it consumes only 500nA, suitable for battery-operated applications that spend extended periods in sleep mode.
Integrated security functions enable the development of secure systems for connecting to the cloud without the need for external security devices or functions. For example, it integrates an AES cryptography accelerator and a true random number generator, as well as various memory protection units.
Other features are capacitive-touch-enable pins that speed the development of touch-based human machine interfaces (HMIs). In addition, the device’s memory mirror function enables the switching from one memory region to another with minimal software overhead, allowing developers to quickly implement over-the-air (OTA) updates.
The Renesas R7FS1JA783A01CFM Synergy MCU and TB-S1JA target board kit is shipping now in the EMEA and Asia Pacific regions.
