Renesas SuperH


The SuperH family offers the highest processing throughput required for today’s sophisticated designs. The SuperH has the capability to implement high-precision, high-speed designs resulting from fast operating frequencies as high as 400 MHz, super-scalar design with multiple instructions being processed in parallel, and 1 MB large-capacity on-chip flash memory with single-cycle access that further contributes to much higher processing speeds.

This high performance processor family combined with a broad selection of advanced on-chip peripherals and extremely low power consumption creates a RISC-based MPU/MCU system that can eliminate the need for a custom designed ASIC.
