The RX100 Series MCUs, which are based on the proven 130nm, low-power process technology, can run at 32MHz, delivering 1.56DMIPS/MHz throughput, consuming only 110uA/MHz power in full active mode and targeting only 350nA in the standby mode.
This achieves an even lower cost and power consumption than the RX200 series already in the market. With this new series, the RX family provides a platform with a common core, using common tools and common peripherals. The RX100 series is clearly targeting low power applications such as wearable / battery powered applications including medical and sensor products. Due to the low system cost of the RX100 series, Renesas will also be able to compete very effectively in the ultra-low end market space where cost is the most important decision factor.
