Proposal for secure and comfortable smart home

Overview

The sensor application is a technology applied to various products including electric appliances, a technology which is essential for product performance and intelligence. Recently, It is also paid attention from an ecology point of view as an indispensable technology that contributes to low power consumption by precisely controlling the behavior of products by sensing the surrounding conditions.

Multi-channel communication functions (serial interface), A/D converters, and timer inputs are required in those systems that use and control many different sensors. In addition, device controlling functions such as motor controlling function etc. are also essential.

Renesas has a lineup of microcomputers that are most suitable for achieving flexible product configurations, and has prepared those solutions.
