Renesas Technology America Inc. is shipping its 160 MHz SH7211F single-chip microcontroller with 512 kbytes of on-chip Flash memory. The 32-bit RISC chip, the latest member of the SuperH family, uses the firm’s new SH-2A core. The CPU also employs proprietary Flash memory technology that provides virtually the same performance as when single-cycle memory accesses are performed at 160 MHz. The SH-2A core improves ROM code efficiency, so program size can be reduced by about 25 percent compared with code written for chips that have the SH-2 core. The 144-pin devices list for $19.84. The line can use peripherals designed for SH-2 cores.
Sensor deployment in automated factories should be done slowly and conservatively, otherwise engineers may face the loss of hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars, an Internet of Things expert will tell attendees at the upcoming Design & Manufacturing Show in Minneapolis.
