In May, Renesas Electronics Corporation announced the availability of five16 bit microcontrollers (MCUs) in the RL78/I1A family that can implement LED controls, power supply controls, and the communication functions required in LED lighting fixtures, all on a single chip.
Features and USP: The new MCUs can achieve both high computational performance and ultra low power consumption, and include about 32 to 64 kilobytes (KB) of flash memory in 20 to 38 pin package versions. These devices can also achieve 20 per cent reduced power consumption during normal operations over Renesas’ existing 78K0/Ix2 products. The MCUs can also provide six high resolution PWM outputs that are capable of supporting an average resolution of 0.97 ns, which allows dimming and colour temperature adjustments about 25 times more precise than RL78/Ix2 products.
