SH72AW, SH72AY Group microcontrollers are equipped with an SH2A-FPU core and have a maximum operating frequency of 160 MHz. An R/D converter that converts output signals from a resolver into digital angle data, and a motor control unit (EMU) that can calculate in parallel with the CPU, are built-in, enabling highly precise and efficient motor control. Other on-chip functions include functions suitable for motor control, such as a motor control timer (MTU-III) that can output two series of three-phase complementary PWM waveforms, and a 12-bit A/D converter capable of simultaneous six-channel sampling; and communication functions, such as CAN and other serial interfaces with chip select/buffer.
