Ultra-low power microcontrollers enabling energy harvesting applications
In the aftermath of the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan, the Japanese government set up the LEAP (Low power Electronics Association and Project) initiative. This has the express aim of developing new, ultra-low power technologies to reduce energy consumption in a wide range of applications across the consumer and industrial market in Japan.

The use of Silicon on Thin Buried Oxide technology enables Renesas to provide devices with unique characteristics that make them ideal for applications that harvest energy from the environment. The combination of low power consumption – both in active and standby mode – along with the large on-chip memory and high-performance CPU will allow users to develop powerful solutions for the next generation of applications. This will provide solutions for applications we cannot yet imagine.

Samples of the R7F0E017, along with a complete suite of development tools, will be available to beta customers in early 2019, with general samples available in the second half of 2019.
