Dual-core Processors for High-performance Multimedia Systems
SH-4A devices achieve 1920 MIPS performance and have an 800MB/s PCI Express bus interface

The microcomputers in the SH7786 group deliver the performance and features needed for the design of enhanced high-performance multimedia products such as car navigation systems. These 32-bit processors harness the processing power of dual SH-4A CPU cores to deliver performance levels up to 1920 MIPS, using a 533MHz clock.

The processors incorporate an internal PCI Express bus interface capable of high-speed data transfers at up to 800Mbytes/second. This makes it possible to reduce system power consumption and implement complex processing tasks such as image recognition and sophisticated graphics by connecting the microcomputers to external high-performance devices via PCI Express bus links.

To aid software development, the high-performance devices in the SH7786 group also provide H-UDI (User Debug Interface) and AUD (Advanced User Debugger) on-chip debug functions. These hardware functions enable system engineers to perform real-time debugging and trace collection, even at the processors' 533MHz maximum operating frequency.

32-bit Flash Microcomputers for Automotive Equipment
Fifty models in 11 groups in the R32C/100 series have the performance and features required by diverse in-vehicle embedded control applications

The 50 new Renesas flash microcomputers for automotive applications comprise 11 groups and join the top-end R32C/100 series in the M16C family. These 32-bit devices models will be made available progressively and include the R32C/120 group aimed at body-control applications, the R32C/133 group with FlexRay support, and the R32C/153 group with 1MB of internal flash memory. The devices have 80-, 100- or 144-pin LQFP packages.

A portion of the internal flash memory that the processors provide simplifies automotive embedded systems because it replaces external Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory (EEPROM). Called EEPROM Emulation Data Flash ? or E 2 Data Flash ? the on-chip nonvolatile memory is as easy to use as external EEPROM. It can be rewritten up to 100,000 times and has a background operation (BGO) function that allows the application to continue to execute while data is being overwritten.

16-bit Secure Microcomputer for ID Cards and Financial Transaction Cards
Device that launches the RS-4 series delivers about five times the performance of previous Renesas chips

The RS45C secure microcomputer addresses all the important design issues that characterize IC card applications that require high security, such as ID cards and bank, credit, and other financial transaction cards. The microcomputer has an RS-4 high-performance 16-bit CPU core, 36Kbytes of EEPROM, and 224Kbytes of mask ROM. For encryption processing, the microcomputer has a triple DES coprocessor and a residue multiplier coprocessor that handles RSA encryption. It is manufactured in facilities and using processes that are highly secure and well proven in the production of high volumes of secure chips currently being used worldwide.

As the first model in the RS-4 series, the RS45C provides significantly enhanced performance compared to its predecessors, the devices in the popular AE-4 series. The processing performance of the RS-4 core is approximately five times that of the AE-4 core. The microcomputer uses Renesas proprietary MONOS EEPROM, which has a rewrite speed approximately twice that of the previous AE45C1 model.

32-bit IC Card MCU with USB Controller for Supporting Electronic Signatures
Microcomputer with AE-5 CPU core has a USB Full Speed (12Mbps) function and is ideal for use as a USB token when connected to a PC or electronic terminal

The AE56U 32-bit IC card microcomputer with built-in USB controller is suitable for use as an USB token with support for high-security electronic signatures. It provides the AE-5 32-bit CPU core widely used in IC card microcomputers, high-reliability EEPROM, and a general-purpose I/O port with a USB controller. The latter feature is in strong demand among IC card microcomputers because it facilitates peripheral device connection when the USB token is connected to a PC or other terminal.

The microcomputer supports USB 2.0 (Full Speed) operation, allowing the data transfer speed to be increased from the 1.5Mbps Low Speed rate to the 12Mbps Full Speed rate. The AE56U chip also complies with the USB interface standard for IC cards (ETSI TS 102 600 V7.0.0) defined by ETSI (European Telecommunications Standards Institute), a European body for standardization in telecommunications.

The AE56U has an internal regulator, so it also complies with Class A (5V) and Class B (3V) of the ISO7816 international standard, which specifies contact IC card characteristics such as their physical shape and the protocols used for communication with reader/writers.

RF Transceiver IC for Mobile Phones
The single-chip solution supports both GSM and HSDPA/W-CDMA operation and saves space with a mounting footprint about 20% smaller than the previous Renesas model.

The R2A60281LG dual-mode 2G/3G RF transceiver IC (RFIC) is a very compact, single-chip solution for improved 2G and 3G mobile phones. It integrates nearly all of high-frequency processing functions used in such products, including the low-noise amplifier (LNA), with the exception of the antenna switch. Small and slim, with a package measuring only 7 x 7 x 0.60mm and a mounting footprint approximately 20% smaller than the previous Renesas transceiver IC, the RFIC enables cost and size reductions in phone designs.

The versatile dual-mode transceiver IC covers four 2G (GPRS/EDGE) bands (850MHz, 900MHz, 1.8GHz, and 1.9GHz), as well as four 3G (W-CDMA) bands (800MHz, 1.5GHz, 1.7GHz, and 2GHz). The R2A60281LG also supports HSDPA Categories 7 and 8 (7.2Mbps, max.).
