RZ Family

The RZ family of high-end ARM-based microprocessors (MPUs) fuses control and information technology (IT) to provide solutions necessary to enable the smart society of the future. From the RZ/A MPU with up to 10 MB of on-chip SRAM for applications such as human machine interface (HMI), to the RZ/G series of MPUs with support for 3D graphics and full high-definition (FHD) 60 frame per second (fps) video, to the RZ/T SoC for Industrial Automation and high performance motor control, Renesas has the microprocessors you need to realize your next “big idea.”

Family Lineup

RZ Family


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.
