RX220 Group of ultra-low power MCUs enables a cost-effective entry into the 32-bit world

by donpedro

MSC now offers 11 MCUs in the RX220 Group of 32-bit microcontrollers (MCUs) from Renesas Electronics. The new RX220 Group of MCUs features processing performance of up to 50 Dhrystone MIPS (DMIPS) at 32MHz and a reduced power consumption of less than half that of the earlier RX200 Series of MCUs.
In particular, in intermittent operation, the new RX220 Group sets new standards. When the CPU is operating and the peripheral functions are halted, the power consumption of the new RX220 MCUs is only 0.2mA/MHz. When operating in software standby mode, in which the contents of the on-chip RAM and registers are maintained but other functions are halted, the operating current is reduced to an ultra-low level of 2µA. In combination with the performance of 1.56 DMIPS/MHz, which is unusually high for mid-range MCUs, a significant reduction of the overall system power consumption can be achieved in systems with alternating processing and standby phases.
