Offering Enhanced Security for IoT and Industrial Applications
Mouser Electronics is now stocking the new RA6M4 32-bit microcontrollers from Renesas Electronics. Uniting exceptional connectivity, security, and performance, the RA6M4 microcontrollers speed the development of edge and endpoint Internet of Things (IoT) devices, as well as applications such as metering, HVAC, enhanced premises security, and industrial equipment.
The Renesas RA6M4 microcontrollers, available from Mouser Electronics, are built on a highly efficient 40 nm process and offer exceptional power efficiency with 99 μA/MHz in active mode. The microcontrollers boast a 200 MHz Arm Cortex-M33 core based on the Armv8-M architecture with Arm TrustZone technology, and come with 1 Mbyte of code flash memory, 256 Kbytes of SRAM, and a capacitive touch sensing unit.
The RA6M4 devices are designed to offer outstanding security capabilities, including an integrated security cryptography module with several accelerators, power analysis resistance, and tamper detection. The microcontrollers are supported by Renesas’ Flexible Software Package (FSP), which enables rapid implementation of complex security and connectivity functions by allowing customers to reuse legacy code and combine it with software from other Arm partners. The FSP also offers tools to increase efficiency, accelerating the development process for projects targeting the RA6M4 microcontrollers.
Mouser also stocks the RA6M4 evaluation kit, which offers native pin access through four 40-pin male headers, as well as access to Ethernet connectivity, 64 Mbytes of external Octo-SPI flash, and 32 Mbytes of external Quad-SPI flash.
