The Renesas Electronics V850 Continua demonstration platform, which runs software from Lamprey Networks, implements a set of guidelines for blood glucose meters developed by the Continua Health Alliance.

The Renesas Electronics 32-bit V850ES/Jx3-L MCUs enable the V850 devices to process more than other MCUs at a lower frequency.

With up to 1 MB of flash memory, the V850 devices can accommodate evolving standards for connected portable medical devices.

Renesas Electronics America Microcontroller Products & Solutions marketing director Ritesh Tyagi said the Continua demo illustrates how an energy-efficient MCU and a software solution can assist their medical customers develop connected medical devices.
