Renesas Electronics intros V850E2P MCU series with built-in resolver sensor interface

TOKYO, JAPAN: Renesas Electronics Corp. has developed a new 32-bit microcontroller (MCU), the V850E2/PJ4-E, which incorporates an on-chip resolver sensor interface. The new MCU realizes both higher performance and lower system cost for automotive control systems including motor control for hybrid electric vehicles/electric vehicles (HEVs/EVs) and other automotive applications.

The new MCU is a derivative of Renesas’ P-series of MCUs and belongs to the 32-bit V850TM RISC MCU Family. It incorporates Renesas’ V850E2 CPU core, which provides excellent real-time operation, and is equipped with a rich set of peripheral functions for motor control.

Renesas’ P-series of MCUs are widely adopted as motor control system solutions for automotive applications. With the combination of the P-series’ dual core lockstep and on-chip resolver sensor interface, the V850E2/PJ4-E MCU is compliant with the ISO 26262 safety standard and easily realizes lower system costs.

HEVs and EVs are rapidly advancing as countermeasures against global warming by cutting CO2 emissions by automobiles. Improvement in controlling function of a driving motor is a key technology for supporting the environmental performance of HEVs/EVs. The V850E2/PJ4-E MCU is introduced to meet the market needs including lower system costs, providing the perfect support for further promoting eco-friendly HEVs/EVs and safety requirements of ISO 26262.
