The SH7457 and 7459 Groups are high-performance RISC microcontrollers embedded with an 32-bit SH-4A CPU core.


They have a maximum operating frequency of 240 MHz, CPU performance of over 432 MIPS, support single and double-precision floating point arithmetic operations, and achieve a maximum single-precision performance of 1.68 GFLOPS.


They incorporate enhanced communication functions required for in-vehicle networks, such as 4 channels of CAN and 2 channels of FlexRay. The SH7457 and SH7459 also incorporate camera interface functions required for in-vehicle camera control such as DRI interface (2 channels) and I2C-bus interface (1 channel), and components required for in-vehicle millimeter wave systems such as PDAC, PSEL, and DRI circuits, Timer unit TMU (3 channels), and multifunction timer unit ATU-IIIS (59 channels). Furthermore, an on-chip inter-board communication function for multi-CPU configurations enables higher performance driver-assist systems.

Hardware Design Support

Title Description
IBIS/BSDL IBIS standard simulation data is required for high-speed board design and can be used to run simulations to examine and troubleshoot issues such as waveform reflection, ringing, and so on, before producing the actual board.
BSDL is a data input format supported by most IEEE 1149.1 (JTAG)-compliant tools. The automatic test pattern generation (ATPG) and automatic test equipment functions of these tools facilitate testing.
