United States : Renesas Electronics Eases Design Complexities for Healthcare, Building Automation, and Home Appliances with True Low-Power and Capacitive Touch Sensing.

Renesas Electronics Corporation, a premier provider of advanced semiconductor solutions, is expanding the use of touch key in healthcare, building automation and home appliance applications with the new RX113 Group of microcontrollers (MCUs). Part of the RX100 Series, the new MCUs offer a single-chip solution with unique touch sensor IP and leading-edge low-power technologies. This enables significantly reduced power, size, and development costs for entry-level devices in these markets, as well as for other cost-sensitive, capacitive touch-based applications for the growing Internet of Things (IoT) market. Renesas' innovative touch sensor intellectual property (IP) core achieves both high noise immunity and high sensitivity, offering touch key operation on wet and curved touch panels.

"There is a growing demand for low-power systems with touch-sensing capabilities to support the diverse range of connected user interfaces for emerging IoT applications. These touch interfaces require even higher sensitivity and noise immunity to ensure sensing accuracy under multiple conditions," said Semir Haddad, director product marketing, Renesas Electronics America. "With the advanced peripheral set and low-power architecture of the RX113, designers who need both performance and power efficiency can now easily implement a single-chip capacitive-touch solution for next-generation healthcare, home automation and appliance designs without comprising their power and cost budgets."

Based on Renesas' industry-leading RX CPU core, the RX113 Group of MCUs delivers the highest performance, lowest power, advanced connectivity and extensive digital signal processing (DSP) capability compared to other entry-level 32-bit MCUs. In addition to a capacitive-touch sensing unit and unprecedented ultra-low power, these full-featured 32-bit MCUs also support LCD control, USB 2.0, audio and more.
