New 600MHz test chip combines enhanced built-in self-test functionality and gigabit ethernet interface.
TOKYO, JAPAN. Renesas Electronics Corporation announced the development the next-generation automotive-control flash Microcontrollers (MCUs) featuring a 28 nanometer (nm) low-power process.
The MCU has four 600 megahertz (MHz) CPUs including a lock-step mechanism and a large 16 MB flash memory capacity, in addition to:
- Virtualization-assisted functions enabling MCU virtualization
- Enhanced built-in self-test (BIST) functionality
- Enhanced networking functionality
Key features also include:
- Hardware-based virtualization-assisted functions
- Standby-resume built-in self-test (BIST) function
- SGMII-compliant Gigabit Ethernet interface with 5V support
Renesas’ aggressive development of the new 28nm flash MCUs will yield a new generation of eco-friendly and autonomous driving cars and bring a safer and more secure driving experience to fruition.
