I have a friend who is engaged in the repair of automotive iron. He somehow brought me a microcontroller soldered from an autonomous heater control unit. He said that his programmer does not take it, and he would like to be able to transfer firmware back and forth, because there are many blocks, in iron they are often the same, but the units they control are different. And it seems that there is a block instead of a faulty one, but the software is different and you just cannot replace it. Since the task was interesting, I decided to rummage around.

I know it's the industry standard but what would it add to my simple project? Would it be ok to work with an Arduino for instance? What are the superior features? I went to their official website and I did some quick research but I didn't understand much.
First off, that's not the industry standard. At least, not for any industry I'm familiar with. There are many more MCU lines that are used quite a lot.
For DIY projects, however, "industry standard" doesn't matter. What matters is "community standard" i. However, the ATmega is only an 8bit MCU, and lacks the horsepower required for complicated projects. There are a slew of easy-to-use MCU development boards out there to remedy this. So, to answer your question, I really can't think of a reason why you should use a Renesas M16C.

Viewed 1k times. Who would've thought all that work I did on them 10 years ago would finally pay off In any case I voted to close as too opinion based.
Also downvoted due to very badly written. Please read the help center to learn how to ask good questions. The Renesas M16C is not an 'industry standard' for me. You have given no explanation for what you need it for, so we can't offer any rational, evidence-based analysis. So we can't help you. If you can't understand it from the website and its datasheet, then it's unlikely that you are going to be successful using it. Start with something that you can understand using your existing level of knowledge and skill.
Then ask specific questions here. Active Oldest Votes. Not to forget good readable datasheets. I personally like to add toolchain support on Linux as that is a very comfortable platform for developing your own software and tools in my opinion.
Again from a availabiltity of tools, source codes and documentation point of view. Nothing is really superior in general, it's more so what fits your project.
If you see a nice feature on the data sheet, then it's worth it to consider Meaning, we can't say what is better for you, that depends on your project.
