Renesas Releases RX24T and RX24U Microcontroller Lineup for High-Temperature-Tolerant Motor Control Applications

February 1, 2019 Laura Dolan

TOKYO. Renesas Electronics Corporation has expanded its line of MCUs with the RX24T and RX24U Groups that include a new high-temperature-tolerant range from −40°C to +105°C, while maintaining high speed, high functionality, and energy efficiency.   

The 32-bit RX24T and RX24U include a maximum operating frequency of 80 MHz. They are equipped with:

  • peripheral functions for motor control such as timers
  • A/D converter
  • analog circuits that support efficient control of two brushless DC motors by a single chip

“Through the IoT, home appliances and industrial machinery are attaining greater functionality based on network connectivity and user interface enhancements and effective use of the limited interior space as the higher temperature environments are becoming major issues,” said Akira Denda, Vice President of Renesas’ Industrial Automation Business Division, Industrial Solution Business Unit. “The newest members of the RX24T and RX24U Groups provide the excellent function and performance that RX users have come to expect from their MCUs while addressing the heat tolerance requirements to support safe and flexible equipment design.”
