Renesas Electronics said it has developed 28-nanometer (nm) flash memory IP for microcontroller chips (MCUs) using a 28 nm process technology. Renesas plans to increase the Flash memory capacity in MCUs by using 28nm process.
Renesas says on-chip MCU flash memory modules as large as 10 MB will be required to support the increasing sophistication of the control systems implemented with MCUs.
Renesas is developing single-chip MCUs using 28 nm process technology with flash memory capacity of over 16MB flash memory on chip.
Renesas is also achieving high-speed readout operating clock frequency of 160 MHz, a data retention time of 20 years, and a rewrite cycle count of 250,000 cycles (for data storage).
