TOKYO, JAPAN: Renesas Electronics Corp. is easing safety design complexities for automotive chassis systems with a new leading-edge series of microcontrollers (MCUs) certified to ASIL-D standards.
The RH850/P1x Series of 32-bit MCUs features the world’s first automotive chassis MCUs that utilize a 40nm process. Combining the 40nm process with its unique MONOS flash memory structure, Renesas offers an innovative solution for electrical power steering (EPS), brake systems, and other chassis systems, delivering reduced power consumption, and more efficient functional safety system development in chassis systems.
The automotive market is looking for innovative ways to deliver a safer driving experience and peace of mind to drivers and passengers. As a market leader, Renesas is developing solutions that make it easier to bring next-generation automotive systems to market quickly, efficiently, and cost effectively.
In addition to the new RH850/P1x series, Renesas Electronics is developing a kit that combines an RH850/P1x Series MCU (single-power-supply version) and the RAA270005KFP power control IC to reduce the power supply design burden significantly. The power control IC integrates trackers for the power supply required by the RH850/P1x Series MCU (single-power-supply version) and for two external sensor power supplies, as well as a variety of monitoring and self-diagnostic functions.
