Renesas Advanced (RA) Family 

High performance 32-bit Arm® Cortex®-M33 MCUs for secure embedded solutions


Renesas RA logo

The Renesas Advanced (RA) Family of 32-bit Arm® Cortex®-M MCUs deliver optimized performance, security, connectivity, and peripheral IP to address the next generation of embedded solutions. Renesas has built a comprehensive partner ecosystem to deliver an array of software and hardware building blocks that work out of the box with RA MCUs. These building blocks include RTOSes, both Microsoft Azure RTOS and FreeRTOS, the Flexible Software Package (FSP) by Renesas, and the Renesas IDE and coding tool e2 studio among others.

Porting micro-ROS into the Renesas RA MCUs facilitates the adoption of the ROS (Robot Operating System) 2 framework in Industry 4.0 and Industrial IoT applications. The Renesas e2 studio integrated development environment will support the micro-ROS implementation, simplifying the process of using the micro-ROS client library.
