Renesas Technology America introduced the RX62T series of microcontrollers (MCU). The RX62T microcontrollers enable embedded systems engineers to offer eco-features for consumer, industrial, and HVAC equipment. The RX62T mcu is ideal for applications such as solar inverters, air conditioners, washing machines, lighting controllers, and power-factor controllers. The 100MHz RX62T microcontrollers are sampling now. Pricing is $3.35 (10K quantity) for the R5F562T7BDFM version (RX62T MCU with 128KB main flash, 8KB data flash, and 8KB SRAM in an LQFP64 package).
