What are the differences between SH7040 series and SH7144 series.


SH7144 series is the inherited model of SH7040 series.
The operating frequency is much more accelerated by improving from 28.7MHz to 50MHz.
The main difference between SH7144 series and SH7040 series are as follows;

•The supply voltage of SH7144 series is only 3.3V. (5V is not supported.)
• SH7144 series doesn’t have some peripheral functions such as multiplex, DRAM interface, and cash memory are deleted.

See the following table for details.
