Montreal, Canada – March 31, 2014 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, announces availability of the RX111 Series of MCUs with the DSP advantage, from Renesas.
Renesas provides a clear advantage with their new RX100 MCU series by providing critical DSP functionality not found in other entry-level 32-bit MCUs. Unlike competitive M0/M0+ families, the RX111 provides a hardware-based MAC (multiply/accumulate) and divide capability – offering a huge improvement in design efficiency and performance compared to software-based implementations. The RX111 also offers an extensive DSP instruction set and a 32-bit Barrel shifter – also not found in competitive M0/M0+ offerings.
The extensive DSP capabilities offered in the RX100 series make it an ideal choice for low-cost, low-power signal-processing applications.
Also available is the RX111 Renesas Promotion Board (RPB), designed to showcase RX111 low power modes, featuring Pmod and energy harvesting connectors, and loaded with software and tools.
In addition, the RX111 Renesas Starter Kit (RSK) is a complete RX111-based hardware/software platform for in-depth application design includes the E1 Debugger, a trial version of the e2studio and Renesas RX compiler and demonstration firmware.
