RL78 is based upon a 16 bit CISC architecture with analogue rich functionality, delivering low power mcu platform consumption and high performance.
It is Renesas Electronics' next-generation microcontroller family combining advanced features from both the 78K and R8C families. The platform lineup includes general purpose, LCD and ASSPs including lighting and automotive microcontrollers. RL78 is designed specifically for ultra low power applications enabling customers to build compact and energy-efficient systems at lower cost.
Features (Advantages) of the Family
Renesas is introducing the RL78/D1x as an optimized solution for the BRICs and low-end instrument cluster markets.
The RL78/D1x is the successor of 78K0/Dx2 or UPD78082x microcontrollers and suited for car instrument cluster, built-in car instrument cluster dedicated features such as Sound Generator, Stepper Motor Controller/Driver and LCD Segment Controller/Driver etc.
The RL78/F1x sophisticated MCU family is the successor of the both well known 78K0R/Fx3 and R8C/5x that realize low power consumption and high performance for a broad range of automotive applications.
The RL78/G1x (general purpose group) is a true low power MCU series within the RL78 family.
