The MCUs feature a 50-DMIPS RX core with up to 512kbyte of flash for code with no wait states.

In addition to extended memory options, the microcontrollers increase package size up to 100 pins to provide higher performance and compatibility with the RX231/RX230 range of touch microcontrollers.

The RX130 microcontrollers also feature a 0.37µA sleep mode with a recovery time of only 4.8µs and integrate a 36-channel capacitive touch sensor.

The microcontrollers also offer a two-channel digital-to-analogue converter (DAC) and a 12-bit analogue-to-digital converter (ADC) capable of conversion within 1.4μs.

Development tools are also available from Mouser Electronics. As s the RX130 Starter Kit which is a development platform that includes bundled code, Renesas’ Eclipse-based e2 studio integrated development environment and a C/C++ compiler.
