Overview

The Renesas RA4M2 group of 32-bit microcontrollers (MCUs) uses the high-performance Arm® Cortex®-M33 core with TrustZone. In concert with the secure crypto engine, it offers secure element functionality. The RA4M2 is built on a highly efficient 40nm process and is supported by an open and flexible ecosystem concept—the Flexible Software Package (FSP), built on FreeRTOS—and is expandable to use other RTOSes and middleware. The RA4M2 is suitable for IoT applications requiring vast communication options, future proof security, large embedded RAM, and low active power consumption down to 81µA/MHz running the CoreMark® algorithm from Flash.

  • Capacitive touch sensing unit (CTSU)
  • USB 2.0 Full Speed
  • CAN 2.0B
  • Quad SPI
  • SCI (UART, Simple SPI, Simple I2C)
  • SPI/I2C multi-master interface
  • SDHI and MMC
  • Enhanced security (fire detection, burglar detection, panel control)
  • Metering (electricity, automated meter reading)
  • Industry (robotics, door openers, sewing machines, vending machines, UPS)
  • HVAC (heating, air conditioning, boiler control)
  • General purpose

This sample software acquires gas data from the ZMOD4410 and ZMOD4510 gas sensors and calculates the result. In combination with the I2C driver of the FSP, the sample software controls the ZMOD4410 and ZMOD4510 through the I2C in the MCU to measure gases, acquire ADC data, and calculate the acquired result.
