RS Components announces availability of new Renesas Synergy S5D3 microcontroller and development board for IoT applications

RS Components (RS) is shipping the recently launched Renesas Synergy S5D3 microcontroller (MCU) and development board. 

The TB-S5D3 Target Board Kit enables engineers to evaluate, prototype and develop IoT endpoint designs based on Renesas Electronics’ new entry-level S5D3 MCU Group.

The R7FS5D37A3A01CFP Synergy MCU is supplied in a 100-pin LQFP package and is scalable up through the S5D5, S5D9 and S7G2 MCU groups if additional features, memory, or higher performance is later required. 

Together with its associated TB-S5D3 Target Board Kit, the R7FS5D37A3A01CFP Synergy MCU is suitable for a diverse range of applications including industrial automation, building automation, office automation, as well as smart metering and other control-based use cases.

The MCU and target board address cost-sensitive applications that do not require on-chip graphics acceleration or Ethernet connectivity, but do require a high-performance MCU. The R7FS5D37A3A01CFP and TB-S5D3 integrate a 120MHz Arm Cortex-M4F processor core and advanced security, along with 512-KB of flash memory and 256-KB of SRAM. 

The S5D3 MCU Group is based on a highly efficient 40nm process technology and is fully supported by the Synergy Software Package (SSP), which enables a seamless transition for design and development engineers between the various Synergy MCUs.

The TB-S5D3 Target Board Kit’s set of features is highly comparable to the existing TB-S5D5 Target Board Kit, including an identical form factor to other boards in the S5 Series. 

The board’s feature-set include pin-headers that provide access to all of the MCU’s signals; easy debugging via the on-board Segger J-Link debugger; a selection of expansion connectivity options, including USB and Pmod connectors, enabling easy connection to many different baseboards; and HMI functionality including user LEDs and touch buttons including a capacitive touch sensing unit.

The Renesas R7FS5D37A3A01CFP Synergy MCU and TB-S5D3 Target Board Kit are shipping now from RS in the EMEA and Asia Pacific regions.
