Advanced MCUs Foster a Secure, Connected, Intelligent IoT

June 6, 2024
Renesas's RA 32-bit microcontroller family uses Arm Cortex-M33, -M23, -M4, and -M85 cores, providing stronger embedded security and ultra-low-power operation.

Based on the Arm Cortex-M33, -M23, -M4, and -M85 processor cores as well as Platform Security Architecture (PSA) certification, the flexible Renesas Advanced (RA) family of 32-bit microcontrollers offer advantages compared to legacy solutions. Such benefits include stronger embedded security, superior CoreMark performance, and ultra-low-power operation.

The RA0E1 series is a basic MCU in the RA0 series, delivering up to 32 MHz of CPU performance. It leverages an Arm Cortex-M23 core and features up to 64 kB of embedded flash memory and a wide supply voltage range from 1.6 to 5.5 V.

Offering a cost-effective solution with minimized power consumption, the RA0 series is well-suited for applications such as low-power consumer electronics, system control for small appliances, industrial system control, and building automation.
