Optimized for real-time control

Mouser Electronics is stocking Renesas Electronics’ RZ/T2L high-performance microprocessor with EtherCAT. Optimized for high-speed processing and high-precision real-time control for applications adopting EtherCAT communication protocols, the RZ/T2L inherits the same hardware architecture from Renesas’ RZ/T2M MPU.

Reducing its overall footprint by up to 50 percent over the RZ/T2M, the RZ/T2L is said to be a cost-effective and scalable alternative for OEMs looking to enter the EtherCAT market with a single-chip motor control solution. Applications include AC servos, inverters, industrial robots, medical equipment, wind turbines and elevators.

The microprocessor features an Arm Cortex-R52 CPU with a maximum operating frequency of 800MHz, an Ethernet MAC and three-port EtherCAT slave controller designed by Beckhoff Automation for Ethernet communication. The MPU’s 576KB of memory is directly connected to the CPU. This reduces execution time unpredictability caused by cache memory, enabling reliable, deterministic processing. All RAM on the MPU is also equipped with an error correction code (ECC) function required for industrial applications.
