Renesas recommends the RX, SH-2A and SH-4A microcontrollers (MCUs) for high-speed access needs, which enable an on-chip SD Host Interface (SDHI). If the emphasis is on compactness and low power consumption, a range of general-purpose MCU solutions are also available. Developers building systems to their own specifications can choose the MCU that best meets their exact requirements.
Renesas’ MCUs support the FAT file system* middleware and SD memory card control device drivers, and can be used in healthcare and measuring equipment (with data-logger capabilities), audio recording devices and digital music players.
*FAT file system is a patent of Microsoft Corporation.
Note: A license is required to develop host systems using an SD memory card. For more information, please contact the SD Association.
