Set-top box solution based on Renesas R8C series MCU
This design scheme USES Renesas R8C single chip microcomputer and FLASH.Low power consumption can be realized.In order to meet the market demand, renesas specially provides EMMA3TS LSI for low-end ground digital vehicles, and renesas also provides a series of low-power solutions.
Set Top Box -the information appliances.
It is a consumer electronic product that enables users to watch digital TV programs and carry out interactive digital entertainment, education and commercialization activities on the existing analog TV.
A set top box -a device that connects a television with an external source.
It converts compressed digital signals into television content and displays them on the TV.Signals can come from cable, satellite dishes, broadband networks and terrestrial radio.
The content that the set-top box receives
Besides the images and sounds that TV can provide, the set-top box can also receive data, including electronic program guides, Internet pages, subtitles and so on.

Now let's take a look at R8C/36C Group multiple applications
Electronic household appliances, office equipment, audio equipment, consumer equipment, etc
The R8C/36C Group of single-chip MCUs incorporates the R8C CPU core, employing sophisticated instructions for a high level of efficiency. With 1 Mbyte of address space, and it is capable of executing instructions at high speed. In addition, the CPU core boasts a multiplier for high-speed operation processing. Power consumption is low, and the supported operating modes allow additional power control. These MCUs are designed to maximize EMI/EMS performance. Integration of many peripheral functions, including multifunction timer and serial interface, reduces the number of system components. The R8C/36C Group has data flash (1 KB × 4 blocks) with the background operation (BGO) function.
