Overview

Description

The Renesas RA6M4 group of microcontrollers (MCUs) 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 RA6M4 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 RA6M4 is suitable for IoT applications requiring Ethernet, future proof security, large embedded RAM, and low active power consumption down to 99uA/MHz running the CoreMark® algorithm from Flash.

Features

  • 200MHz Arm® Cortex®-M33 with TrustZone®
  • Secure element functionality
  • 512kB - 1MB Flash memory and 192kB SRAM with Parity and 64kB SRAM with ECC
  • Dual-bank-Flash with background operation
