Solution Demonstrations – Endpoint intelligence at work

Embedded developers can explore the broad range of Renesas solutions enabling embedded endpoint intelligence in current and emerging application areas.

  • Energy harvesting solutions with 1,000 times smaller start-up current
    Renesas will showcase the latest enhancements to the industry’s first full energy harvesting solution at the microcontroller (MCU) level. Renesas’ R7F0E embedded controller has achieved start-up current levels as low as 5 µA, which is 1/1000th the start-up current of ultra-low power MCUs available today. Using very little start-up current is essential for systems powered by small and inconsistent sources of energy harvested from sources such as radio waves, light, flow, and temperature difference. The R7F0E’s active current and standby current levels -- both 1/10th that of conventional low-power MCUs -- make it an ideal solution for battery-free products. Globally, Renesas is working closely with more than 15 energy harvesting and sensor device providers to expand the adoption of SOTB technology for battery-free applications ranging from agriculture and environment sensors to wearables and civil infrastructure monitoring.
  • e-AI (embedded artificial intelligence) solutions
    Renesas will display its recently launched Failure Detection e-AI Solution for motor-equipped home appliances, featuring the Renesas RX66T 32-bit MCU, which predicts failures before they occur to save costs and resources. The RZ/A2M microprocessor (MPU) demonstrates a hybrid approach to fast e-AI with image pre-processing by DRP and AI Inference by CPU. Click here for the latest news release of the RX66T e-AI solution and here for the news release of the RZ/A2M solution.
  • New 64-bit ARMv8-A based MPUs
    Renesas will highlight its new RZ/G2 Group of high-performance multi-core MPUs featuring Arm® Cortex®-A53 and Cortex®-A57 CPU cores operating up to 1.5 GHz, and enabled by a complete Verified Linux Package with 10-year support on the CIP Linux core. Renesas will demonstrate performance in multiple ways with UHD 4K video application and a video phone design. Click here for the news release of the new RZ/G2 Group of MPUs.
  • PLC solutions
    Renesas will illustrate how to implement KNX networks and take advantage of the flexibility and efficiency offered by modern G3-PLC™ (powerline communication) technology while eliminating the need for new network cable deployment for smart buildings.

  • Security solutions
    Renesas extends its high-integration Renesas Synergy™ S5 MCU series, introducing a new entry-level MCU Group featuring a 120 MHz Arm® Cortex®-M4 core and advanced security, as well as general-purpose features that simplify the design of cost-sensitive, low-power Internet of Things (IoT) endpoint devices. Renesas will also show its RX130 security demo with Intrinsic ID technology, which is implemented on Renesas’ low-end RX130 devices and provides customers with a security solution based on a reliable root of trust. Click here for the latest news release of the S5 MCU series.
  • Low-power MCU solutions
    Renesas will demonstrate its Quick Solutions boards containing RL78 MCUs as well as analog and power devices. These assist product development by providing downloadable documents including user manuals, sample software source code, circuit diagrams, PCBs and BOMs. One of the applications on the stand will be a handy vacuum cleaner reference design, which contains the RL78/G12F MCU and ISL9420 battery management IC. These products help create a sensorless 3-phase BLDC motor control solution for high-speed suction with battery-driven, cordless operation.
  • Analog & Power solutions
    Renesas will highlight the combined strengths of its MCU, analog and power expertise with the Pet Activity Monitor reference design demo. It features the Renesas Synergy S3A3 MCU, ISL9230 single-cell Li-ion battery charger, ISL9120 buck-boost regulator, and ISL28133 op amp. The reference design PCB is housed inside a plastic case, illustrating low power consumption, low continuous active current and quick design capabilities for a wearable that fits onto a collar to monitor the pet’s activity and sounds throughout the day. This will be a special eye-catcher at the booth. Watch out for the dogs!
  • Automotive solutions
    Renesas will reveal several automotive demos that support intelligent endpoints in and around the car. A new MCU family based on 28nm MONOS flash technology will be presented, as well as Field Over-The-Air (OTA) programming based on double bank flash configuration and read while write (RWW) technology to allow fail-safe updates during operation in the field. Renesas will also showcase its connected car, integrated image signal processing, camera object detection, stereo vision and dense optical flow demos. Another highlight will be the Ethernet & Connected Gateway for Automotive featuring Renesas’ in-vehicle network (IVN) demonstrator for Time Sensitive Networking with seamless redundancy.

Join the MCU Car Rally

Renesas will also be holding its popular European MCU Car Rally for the fifth year running as premium sponsor of the embedded world students’ day. Approximately 200 students from 32 European Renesas Partner Universities have assembled model racing cars with Renesas components. The university teams will race them in the rally, which is being held in the main entrance area (Mitte) on February 28, with qualification rounds starting at 10:40 am CET. The final eight teams will go head to head at 14:45 followed by the award ceremony at 15:45 CET
