RS Components has announced that it is shipping a new Renesas Synergy ultra-low-power microcontroller that simplifies designs for a wide range of industrial applications including instrumentation, multisensory systems, headless medical monitors, and single-phase electrical meters.
The R7FS1JA783A01CFM Synergy MCU is based on a 48MHz Arm Cortex-M23 processor core with 256KB code flash and 32KB SRAM memory. The MCU features enhanced programmable analogue and security functions for high-accuracy 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.
