2018.10.25  Renesas Unveils RXv3 CPU Core with Industry-Leading Performance: Powering Up New 32-Bit RX MCU Families

TOKYO, Japan – Renesas Electronics Corporation (TSE:6723), a premier supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, today announced the development of its third-generation 32-bit RX CPU core, the RXv3. The RXv3 CPU core will be employed in Renesas’ new RX microcontroller (MCU) families that begin rolling out at the end of 2018. The new MCUs are designed to address the real-time performance and enhanced stability required by motor control and industrial applications in next-generation smart factory, smart home and smart infrastructure equipment.

The innovative RXv3 core boosts the proven Renesas RX CPU core architecture with up to 5.8 CoreMark®/MHz, as measured by EEMBC® Benchmarks, to deliver industry-leading performance (Note), power efficiency, and responsiveness. The RXv3 core is backwards compatible with the RXv2 and RXv1 CPU cores in Renesas’ current 32-bit RX MCU families. Binary compatibility using the same CPU core instruction sets ensures that applications written for the previous-generation RXv2 and RXv1 cores carry forward to the RXv3-based MCUs. Designers working with RXv3-based MCUs can also take advantage of the robust Renesas RX development ecosystem to develop their embedded systems.

“The cutting-edge RXv3 core technology targets a wide range of embedded applications in the industrial IoT era where ever increasing system complexity places higher demands on performance and power efficiency,” said Daryl Khoo, Vice President Product Marketing, IoT Platform Business Division, Renesas Electronics Corporation. “The EEMBC CoreMark/MHz processor benchmark clearly shows the RXv3 core outperforms all competing CPU cores. Once again, Renesas delivers superior MCU performance and power efficiency to our customers’ next-generation embedded systems.”
