The low-power-consumption operation (HALT, STOP, SNOOZE mode) demonstration lets us visualize actual current consumption. Microcontroller current consumption can be measured by connecting the ammeter to J3 on the board. RTC operates in STOP mode. The XT1 oscillations using the Low-CL resonator (SSP-T7-FL) can be reliably fed to the microcontroller, even as the CPU subsystem clock source in extra low-power oscillation mode (0.18μA).
Working in partnership with a world-leading microcontroller manufacturer, we've dramatically reduced standby power consumption. Here, we'll review the Renesas RL78 and RX families of super low-power microcontrollers that incorporate Low-CL resonators.
Microcontrollers (R8C, 78K, RL78, RX families) using Low-CL technology include a range of high-grade, high-function components suitable for virtually any application. Low-CL resonators are designed to achieve further reductions in standby power consumption for super low-power microcontrollers.
The three advantages provided by Low-CL technology (low power consumption, high speed, and high accuracy) attest to the effectiveness of Low-CL resonators.
Amidst continuous infinite and infinitesimal divergence and eternal tranquility, all that is visible to us is a wasteful, monotonous, and empty world view. Could the very creation of numbers constitute the "beginning of the world" filled with energy?
