(4) Designed for IoT security and safety:
Compliance with international safety standards is important in industrial automation, home appliance and electrical control applications. The RX231 MCUs offer extensive hardware-based safety features for UL and IEC60730, including self-diagnostic and disconnect-detection monitoring for the on-chip A/D converter; a clock frequency accuracy measurement circuit; an independent watchdog timer, and a built-in hardware memory test to spot anomalies in the internal RAM. For enhanced security, the RX231 provides AES encryption, a hardware-based Random Number Generator (RNG) and Unique Device ID that can be configured to support advanced cryptology requirements.
Pricing and Availability
Samples of the RX231 Group are available now. Pricing varies depending on memory capacity, package and number of pins. For example the R52315ADFL with 128 KB of flash memory and 32 KB of RAM memory equipped in a 48-pin LQFP package is priced at US$2.05 per unit in 10,000-unit quantities. Mass production of the RX231 Group is scheduled to begin in September 2015 and is expected to reach a monthly production of 500,000 units per month in December 2016.
