The Renesas RA6M3 group of microcontrollers (MCUs) uses the high-performance Arm® Cortex®-M4 core and offers a TFT controller with 2D accelerator and JPEG decoder. Additionally, the RA6M3 MCU offers Ethernet MAC with individual DMA and USB high-speed interface to ensure high data throughput. The RA6M3 MCU 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 RA6M3 is suitable for IoT applications requiring TFT, Ethernet, security, large embedded RAM, and USB High Speed (HS).

Features

  • 120MHz Arm® Cortex®-M4
  • 1MB - 2MB Flash memory and 640kB SRAM
  • 64kB Data Flash to store data as in EEPROM
  • Scalable from 100-pin to 176-pin packages
  • Ethernet controller with DMA
  • TFT controller/2D accelerator/JPEG decoder
  • Capacitive touch sensing unit
  • USB 2.0 Full Speed/USB High Speed
  • CAN 2.0B
  • SCI (UART, Simple SPI, Simple I2C)
  • SPI/I2C multimaster interface/SDHI

Applications

  • HMI (small/mid size TFT)
  • Applications with demand for High Speed USB and wired Ethernet applications
  • Security (fire detection, burglar detection, panel control)
  • Industry (robotics, door openers, sewing machines, vending machines, UPS)
  • HVAC (heating, air conditioning, boiler control)
  • General purpose
