The Renesas RA6M5 group uses the high-performance Arm® Cortex®-M33 core with TrustZone®. In concert with the Secure Crypto Engine it offers Secure Element functionality. The integrated Ethernet MAC with individual DMA ensures high data throughput. The RA6M5 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 RA6M5 is suitable for IoT applications requiring Ethernet, future proof security, large embedded RAM, and low active power consumption down to 107uA/MHz running the CoreMark® algorithm from Flash.

Features

  • 200MHz Arm® Cortex®-M33 with TrustZone®
  • Secure element functionality
  • 1MB - 2MB Flash memory and 448kB SRAM with Parity and 64kB SRAM with ECC
  • Dual-bank-Flash with background operation, and block swap functionality
  • 8kB Data Flash to store data as in EEPROM
  • Scalable from 100-pin to 176-pin packages
  • Ethernet controller with DMA
  • Capacitive touch sensing unit
  • USB 2.0 High-Speed and Full Speed
  • CAN FD (CAN 2.0B option)
  • QuadSPI and OctaSPI
  • SCI (UART, Simple SPI, Simple I2C)
