The Renesas RZ Family of high-end 32 and 64-bit Arm®-based microprocessors (MPUs) enables the solutions required for the smart society of the future. Through a variety of Arm Cortex®-A7, A9, A15, A53, A57 and R4-based devices, engineers can easily implement high-resolution human machine interfaces (HMI), embedded vision, embedded artificial intelligence (e-AI) and real-time control and industrial ethernet connectivity.
The RZ/G2 64-bit Arm® Cortex®-A57 and Cortex®-A53-based MPUs deliver industry-leading high performance, advanced graphics capabilities, and high-bandwidth ECC memory interfaces with super long-term Linux support.
The high-performance RZ/A Series MPUs retain the ease-of-use of Renesas microcontrollers (MCUs), while combining Renesas' proprietary technologies and the Arm® ecosystem. RZ/A devices offer up to 10 MB of on-chip SRAM, which can buffer up-to WXGA resolution graphics without the need for external SDRAM. This capability is married with the device’s ability to execute code in-place (XIP) from QSPI flash, which greatly simplifies board design. Coupled with its high-bandwidth 128-bit wide parallel data bus, the RZ/A supports faster graphics, digital audio signal processing, device control, and more.
RZ/G Series MPUs extends the capabilities of RZ/A Series to deliver high-end performance for graphics, multi-stream video, and embedded vision thanks to features like camera input, 3D graphics accelerators, Full HD video codec, and GbE. Renesas also offers the RZ/G Linux platform, which is a user-friendly software development environment for customers who wish to lower the barriers and cost of Linux adoption and maintenance. The RZ/G Linux Platform enables super-long-term Civil Infrastructure (CIP) Linux support in an industrial grade verified Linux package, which complements Renesas’ high quality silicon.
The second products in the RZ Family. These high-end controllers leverage tightly-coupled memory to achieve high speed and high responsivity, and also support multi-protocol industrial Ethernet communications.
RZ/N Series is a family of scalable and performant Arm® based communication devices that support multiple Industrial Ethernet protocols. An API towards the application software makes the communication software transparent and lets developers focus on what they know best - solving customers’ problems.
