H8S/2472F MCU with Ethernet controller from Renesas

Renesas Technology Corp. has announced the H8S/2472F as its first 16bit MCU incorporating an Ethernet controller, for use in temperature-control systems for low-end servers and industrial products.

Features of the new devices include:

? First on-chip Ethernet controller in a Renesas 16bit MCU, reducing system size and cost
The H8S/2472F is the first 16bit MCU in the company's H8S family to incorporate an IEEE802.3-compliant MAC, enabling connection to a 10/100Mbps Ethernet LAN. This eliminates the need for an external dedicated Ethernet chip, enabling system size and cost to be reduced.

? Comprehensive on-chip peripheral functions including USB, I?C bus and LPC bus
The H8S/2472F incorporates a comprehensive set of peripheral functions, including a USB function (Full-Speed support), I?C bus and low-pin-count (LPC) bus, allowing connection to a variety of peripheral systems.

? BGA package allowing smaller mounting area
The use of a 176-pin BGA package enables the mounting area to be reduced, allowing smaller systems to be implemented.

The H8S/2472F incorporates the Ethernet controller module used in Renesas' 32bit SuperH family, together with the USB function required by various systems. The E10A on-chip debugging emulator is available as a development environment.

Sample shipments will begin in May 2007 in Japan. Sample pricing is $15 each.
