Low power 16-bit LCD microcontroller with rich analog integration.


The ultra low power RL78/L1A microcontroller family with embedded LCD has enhanced analog peripherals such as 12bit A/D converters, 12bit D/A converters, comparators, high accurate rail to rail OPAMPs with switch fabrics and comes with memory up to 128Kbyte Flash.

Using the smart  features like DTC and ELC a lot of peripherals can be connected internally to reduce CPU workload and can save overall power consumption.

Available in 80pin and 100pin LFQFP packages this MCU line has been developed especially for healthcare Bio-sensing applications such as blood glucose meter, but is suitable for many other appliances which needs low power with LCD and rich analog peripherals.

Title Description
e² studio This integrated development environment (IDE) is based on the popular combination of the open-source Eclipse IDE and its CDT plug-in that enables C/C++ language development.
CS+ This integrated development environment (IDE) can be used for coding, assembly, compiling, and simulation. CS+ is also included with starter kits.
E2 emulator Lite This entry-level on-chip debugging emulator provides functionality equivalent to that of the E1 emulator at a low price.
E2 emulator This on-chip debugging emulator has advanced features that improve the efficiency of development. In addition to the basic functions from debugging to flash programming, this emulator supports hot plug-in and external triggers as standard items. This emulator also helps to reduce development time by downloading at high speeds (compared to the E1 emulator) and the ability to work in combination with various solutions such as the tuning of current drawn by systems under development.
E1 emulator This on-chip debugging emulator is a standard model which provides basic debugging functions (production is to be discontinued at the end of December 2019).
