RENESAS Industrial Ethernet

Posted by Charbax – April 4, 2020

Renesas' Industrial Internet Solution The growth and expansion of factory automation (FA) applications is well established. Industrial robots are replacing human workers, and FA in general is delivering improved efficiency and stability. A recent and very significant development in this area is industrial networks that better support such applications by linking all elements of production systems to the Internet. Specifically, momentum is increasing for an "industrial Ethernet" that interconnects FA machinery via Ethernet-compliant protocols. Facilitating this system-design advancement, Renesas is shipping samples of a new communication-LSI series tailored specifically for the industrial Ethernet. To learn more about this development, EDGE talked with Akira Denda, General Manager of the Industry & Network Solutions Business Division, 1st Solution Business Unit; and Katsunobu Suzuki, Section Manager of the Industry & Energy SoC Department in that organization. The interview that follows covers the challenges faced by designers of the computer controlled, networked industrial equipment used to produce many types of products. It also highlights why R-IN32M3 LSI devices are destined to accelerate the proliferation of industrial-Ethernet system designs in a multitude of market

Renesas SOTB (silicon-on-thin-buried-oxide) Low Power ARM microcontrollers for energy harvesting

Posted by Charbax – October 28, 2019

Renesas Electronics Corporation (TSE:6723), a premier supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, today unveiled an innovative energy-harvesting embedded controller that can eliminate the need to use or replace batteries in IoT devices. Developed based on Renesas' breakthrough SOTB™ (silicon-on-thin-buried-oxide) process technology, the new embedded controller achieves extreme reduction in both active and standby current consumption, a combination that was not previously possible to achieve in conventional microcontrollers (MCUs). These extreme low current levels of the SOTB-based embedded controller enables system manufacturers to take a step further and completely eliminate the need for batteries in some of their products through harvesting ambient energy sources such as light, vibration, and flow. The use of extreme low-power and energy harvesting gives rise to a new market of maintenance-free connected IoT sensing devices with endpoint intelligence for applications in industrial, business, residential, agricultural, healthcare, and public infrastructure, as well as health and fitness apparel, shoes, wearables, smart watches, and drones. Renesas has already begun supplying the new embedded controller to beta customer.

Renesas’ first commercial product using SOTB technology, the R7F0E embedded controller, is a 32-bit, Arm® Cortex®-based embedded controller capable of operating up to 64 MHz for rapid local processing of sensor data and execution of complex analysis and control functions. Consuming just 20 μA/MHz active current, and only 150 nA deep standby current, approximately one-tenth that of conventional low-power MCUs, these industry-leading characteristics make the R7F0E perfectly suited for extreme low-power and energy harvesting.

ARM Cortex-M33, ARM Cortex-M23, ARMv8-M, TrustZone, IoT Technology Suite

Posted by Charbax – October 29, 2016

ARM launches their first ARM Cortex-M processors based on ARMv8-M architecture with ARM TrustZone technology,
IoT subsystem with ARM CoreLink system IP for fastest, lowest-risk path to silicon, Secure SoC designs fortified by TrustZone CryptoCell technology, Complete wireless solution with ARM Cordio radio IP for 802.15.4 and Bluetooth 5, Cloud-based service for secure management of IoT devices via ARM mbed Cloud, Optimized implementation on ARM Artisan IoT POP IP for the TSMC 40ULP process.

ARM Cortex-M23 and Cortex-M33 are the first embedded processors based on the ARMv8-M architecture, bringing the proven secure foundation of ARM TrustZone to the most constrained IoT nodes. The majority of the top ten global MCU suppliers have already licensed one or both processors. Lead partners include Analog Devices, Microchip, Nuvoton, NXP, Renesas, Silicon Labs and STMicroelectronics.

The highly versatile Cortex-M33 features configuration options including a coprocessor interface, DSP and floating point computation, with increased performance and efficiency relative to Cortex-M3 and Cortex-M4. The Cortex-M23 takes security to the most constrained devices, building on the standard set by Cortex-M0+ as an ultra-low power microprocessor in a tiny footprint
The new Cortex-M processors are backwards compatible with ARMv6-M and ARMv7-M architectures for direct and fast porting, accelerating product development. TrustZone CryptoCell-312 fortifies the SoC with a rich set of security features protecting the authenticity, integrity and confidentiality of code and data.
