Renesas Launches RA6T2 MCUs for Motor Control

The new RA6T2 Group MCUs deliver an unmatched combination of performance, features, and cost-efficiency for motor control designs in home appliances, smart home, industrial and building automation, as well as inverter control.

Renesas Electronics has released the RA6T2 Group MCUs featuring a rich set of peripheral functions and hardware accelerator designed specifically for motor control.

Renesas MCUs Motor ControlThe new RA6T2 Group MCUs deliver an unmatched combination of performance, features, and cost-efficiency for motor control designs in home appliances, smart home, industrial and building automation, as well as inverter control.

“Our motor control customers are looking to differentiate their products in very competitive markets,” said Roger Wendelken, Senior Vice President in the IoT and Infrastructure Business Unit at Renesas. “The RA6T2 Group delivers a unique combination of performance and features that enable cost-effective, powerful designs for a wide variety of applications.”

Based on the 240-MHz Arm Cortex-M33 core, the new RA6T2 32-bit MCUs feature peripherals optimized for high performance and precision motor control to reduce bill of materials (BOM) cost while boosting performance.

In addition, amplifiers that can set the gain according to the input voltage range are built-in, and analog components that were previously external are incorporated, including comparators that detect abnormal voltage input and over current. In addition, the adjustable PWM timer makes it easy to port existing algorithms.

It also provides, in cooperation with other analog functions, a PWM output cutoff safety function in the event of an abnormality. With these features, a single RA6T2 MCU can simultaneously control up to two brushless DC (BLDC) motors.
