Renesas adds three new MCU groups to Synergy platform

Renesas Electronics is extending its microcontroller portfolio within the Renesas Synergy Platform to cover an even wider range of capabilities, CPU performance, and memory sizes, so system developers can get exactly what they need to create innovative solutions that drive their businesses. This broadened spectrum of scalable and compatible MCUs provides developers with many options to develop end-products with a high degree of re-use in both hardware and software of engineering resources. With the addition of the new S128, S3A3, and S3A6 Groups of Synergy MCUs, there are now a total of seven MCU Groups with 57 devices based on ARM Cortex-M CPU cores covering operating frequencies from 32MHz up to 240MHz, and on-chip flash memory sizes of 64KB, 128KB, 256KB, 512KB, 1MB, 2MB, and 4MB. Renesas will continue to add new Synergy MCU Groups in the future, building on this foundation to increase the depth of solutions for specific applications.

System developers with leaner requirements can select devices from the S3A3 and S3A6 Groups to scale their applications down to 512 KB and 256 KB flash memory as needed, compared to the existing 1 MB flash MCUs in the S3A7 Group. The S128 Group extends selections for ultra-low power applications that require larger memory up to 256 KB, or require additional analog signal conditioning, compared to the existing S124 Group MCUs.
