Renesas Launches Automotive Actuator and Sensor Control MCUs for Evolving Edge Applications in Next-Generation E/E Architecture

Renesas | December 18, 2021

Renesas Electronics Corporation, a premier supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, announced two new microcontrollers (MCUs) designed for automotive actuator and sensor control applications supporting edge evolution in next-generation electronic and electrical (E/E) architecture. With the new RL78/F24 and RL78/F23, Renesas expands its RL78 Family of low-power 16-bit MCUs and strengthens its broader automotive portfolio, offering customers highly reliable, high-performance solutions for systems ranging from actuators to zone control. With E/E architecture extending to include zone and domain control applications, control mechanisms are evolving to accommodate body control for automotive systems such as lights, windows, and mirrors; motor control for engine pumps and fans; and multiple sensor control. Moving forward, high-speed and secure connectivity with zone and domain controllers will be mission critical for edge electronic control units (ECUs). Renesas’ next-generation RL78/F24 and RL78/F23 MCUs address changing technology demands for actuator and sensor control with enhanced security, rich connectivity, and functional safety capabilities. The new devices support the CAN FD high-speed communication protocol (RL78/F24) and EVITA-Light security and are optimized for systems targeting ASIL-B levels under the ISO 26262 functional safety standard. Advances in E/E architecture add stress to the already heavy development burden, and there is high demand among our customers to efficiently develop actuators.Our new actuator and sensor control MCUs build on our highly popular RL78/F14 and RL78/F13 devices and enable developers to reuse most of their existing software assets, reducing costs while continuing to accelerate the advancement of E/E architecture.” Naoki Yoshida, Vice President, Automotive Digital Products Marketing Division at Renesas The future of automotive systems design lies in a vehicle-centralized, zone-oriented E/E architecture, and that shift is sparking higher demand for more advanced functionality and better performance in actuator controller applications. The new RL78/F24 and RL78/F23 MCUs deliver up to approximately 70 percent faster operating frequencies than the previous generation, which can more than double the performance in brushless motor control (BLDC) applications. Renesas also enhanced the hardware accelerator and timer functions for motor control and added a 12-bit A/D converter, offering customers the enhanced functionality and performance levels they demand. Key Features of RL78/F24 and RL78/F23 MCUs 40 MHz operating frequency Supports several connectivity interfaces, including CAN FD (RL78/F24), LIN, SPI, and I2C EVITA-Light support security functionality (support for AES-128/192/256 encryption algorithms) Pin compatible with the RL78/F14 and RL78/F13 MCUs with the same power efficiency On-chip flash memory capacity of 128 KB or 256 KB Package lineup ranging from compact 5 × 5 mm 32-pin QFN to 100-pin QFP Support for high temperatures up to 150°C RL78/F24 Target Board and RL78/F24 12V Motor Control Evaluation System Starter Kit soon to be released for RL78/F24 (under development) Availability Samples of the RL78/F24 and RL78/F23 MCUs will be available starting April 2022, and are scheduled to enter mass production in the second half of 2023.

Culvert IoT Announces SpaceTrace - a Ground-breaking Rapid Deployment, to Improve the Safety and Efficiency of Industrial Workplaces

Culvert IoT | January 10, 2022

Culvert IoT Corporation, a hardware skunkworks to many of Silicon Valley’s leading technology companies, today announced the launch of SpaceTrace, a turnkey solution to enable rapid development and deployment of location awareness solutions for Industry 4.0. Culvert IoT SpaceTrace is a family of products that provide simple-to-deploy location awareness solutions that brings the best of Bluetooth Low Energy, Ultra-Wide Band and Low Power Cellular together in a “pick and mix” assortment of Tags, Trackers and Bridges which can be combined to build specific applications for enterprises. The challenge facing industry today is that no two asset tracking applications are the same. This means enterprises face an uphill battle in terms of costs and time in order to implement intelligent applications which improve safety or efficiencies through enabling people, products and machines to be aware of their individual proximity to each other. SpaceTrace’s low power Tags and Trackers offer unparalleled location accuracy using UWB, BLE, WiFi, and LTE Cell ID, and leverage u-blox’s Thingstream IoT Communication-as-a-Service platform to convey this location information seamlessly to the cloud from anywhere in the world. SpaceTrace enables the augmentation of workspaces with location-aware information to build applications such as preventing workers from entering unsafe areas or getting too close to machinery as well as providing the right documentation instantaneously when inspecting machines or sites and providing workflow analysis. SpaceTrace also supports AR integration to help develop new types of mobile applications, allowing customers to superimpose digital content over the world around them. About Culvert IoT A hardware skunkworks to many of the valley’s leading technology companies, Culvert IoT Corporation builds on decades of experience designing large-scale logistics IoT for mission-critical applications. In the consumer realm, the company has been a hardware design partner for Google X among others and is currently developing its own line of products, including SpaceTrace.
