The SH7266 and SH7267 belong to the SH7260 Series of microcontrollers, and the maximum operating frequency of 144 MHz enables faster operation in applications such as equipment control or digital audio signal processing. This combination of excellent signal processing performance and ROM code efficiency means that compression and decompression of audio data in formats required by digital audio applications, such as MP3, WMA, or AAC (Advanced Audio Coding), is performed more quickly and program sizes are reduced. An ample 1.5 Mbyte of on-chip SRAM is provided for video display use. It can be configured as a frame buffer to store video data temporarily, which is necessary when implementing graphical display capabilities. & The SH7266 and SH7267 provide a new video display controller and digital video input pins for use with graphical and video display applications. Digital RGB output pins allow output of images or video in RGB565 format at up to VGA size (640 × 480 pixels).
