Automotive LSI

Cars have come to be called "drivable computers." Countless LAN-connected MCUs acquire data from actuators and sensors, and perform optimal processing to create earth-friendly cars. Advanced navigation systems not only make driving more pleasant; they also provide safety with danger avoidance systems using video recognition. We support continually evolving car electronics with the latest technologies and reliability.


"R-Car" is the nickname for Renesas' lineup of system-on-chips (SoCs) for car information systems.

Products Lineup

For Car Information System

R-Car H2

Achieving the industry's highest performance of over 25,000 DMIPS (double that of the R-Car H1) using nine CPUs, and possessing a high-performance graphics core with the latest PowerVR architecture, an image recognition engine, and three high-definition video outputs, the R-Car H2 is the first of the second-generation R-Car products, a product series that will contribute to innovation in information services for high-end cars.

R-Car M2

R-Car M2 system-on-chip (SoC) for mid-range car information systems. Optimized functions and software compatibility in product family. Ecosystem that includes partner solutions helps speed up development of prototypes and greatly reduces development costs.

R-Car H1

The R-Car H1 is an SoC (system-on-chip) for premium class devices that integrates a quad-core ARM® Cortex™-A9 processor with the maximum frequency of 1 GHz, a high-performance graphics processor, high-performance video processing IPs supporting dual full HD, a dedicated audio processing DSP, and a variety of many other peripheral functions.

R-Car M1A

The R-Car M1A, the first-phase product of the R-CarM Series, is an SoC (System on Chip) integrating a ARM Cortex-A9 and a SH-4A CPU core, which has even more on-chip enhanced graphics functions and a high-perfomance video processing IP supporting up to full 1080 HD video.

R-Car M1S

The R-Car M1S, the first-phase product of the R-CarM Series, is an SoC (System on Chip) integrating a SH-4A CPU core, which has even more on-chip enhanced graphics functions and a high-perfomance video processing IP supporting up to full 1080 HD video.

R-Car E1

The R-Car E1 is an SoC suitable for entry-level navigation systems or display audio systems. It is built around an ARM® Cortex™-A9 processor with a maximum operating frequency of 533MHz and integrates an array of peripheral functions, including high-performance graphics, high-performance video processing IP with multi-codec support for H.264/MPEG4/VC-1, and a distortion compensation module.

SH-Navi3 (SH7776)

The SH-Navi III is a dual-core system-on-chip (SoC) device that integrates 2 SH-4A cores, achieves excellent processing performance of up to 1,920 MIPS, and has even more on-chip enhanced graphics functions and a high-performance image recognition processing function compared to earlier Renesas products.

SH-Navi J3 (SH7777)

The SH-Navi J3, the third-phase product of the SH-NaviJ Series, is an SoC (System on Chip) integrating a rich variety of high-performance on-chip peripheral functions for multimedia applications, including a graphics processor with 2-D and 3-D drawing functions compatible with the industry-standard OpenGL ES, an H.264/MPEG-4 AVC multi-codec high-perfomance video processing IP, and a 24-bit audio DSP for processing audio formats such as AAC, MP3, and WMA.


The SH7769 SoC enhances such functions as video input, display output and high-reliability systems compared to Renesas' existing SH-Navi3 (SH7776) SoC, which has been widely adopted for high-end automotive infotainment systems.


The SH7766 is an image recognition SoC equipped with an SH-4A core, a distortion compensation engine, graphics and image recognition engines, and other hardware engines necessary for surround detection systems.


The SH7786 is a dual-core processor built around a pair of SH-4A CPUs for superior processing performance of up to 1920MIPS (when operating at 533MHz).


The SH7761 is an SH-4A core microprocessor for telematics and handsfree devices. It has improved sophisticated voice recognition, high-speed communication with mobile devices, and connectivity with portable music players and other entertainment devices.

For Car Audio


The AE1-L (μPD63911) and AE1-LF (μPD63530 and μPD63910) are audio decoder systems-on-chip (SoCs) with an integrated USB (Universal Serial Bus) host controller for automotive and consumer electronics applications such as digital car audio and digital audio.


The μPD63770 is a car audio CD playback system LSI that includes a mecha control microcontroller, an RF amplifier for on-board CD player, a digital servo, a data processor, and an audio D/A converter.
