Stream it! – RZ now in new version 2.0!


The Stream it! – RZ solution kit is an out-of-the-box evaluation and development platform for streaming applications, such as IP based video and radio streams, as well as security applications, such as video surveillance and video/fingerprint based access control.


Stream-it! – RZ is also best suited for all kinds of web server based applications in the home automation, energy and industrial automation segments.


In order to enable a fast development ramp, Renesas provides several related application specific quick start guides, complete with sample software and easy-to-follow set-up instructions.








Target applications for Stream it! – RZ – V2.0

  • Webserver
  • MJPEG streaming
  • h.264 video encoding
  • 2D graphics
  • GUI (Graphical User Interface)
  • Wi-Fi communication (coming up!)




Stream it! – RZ – V2.0 enhancements

The second generation of the very popular Stream-it! – RZ solution kit has been improved in four dimensions. First, Stream-it! – RZ - V2.0 features a much more feature-rich RZ/A embedded MPU (eMPU), called RZ/A1-LU. Second, in addition to the camera module, the solution kit now comes with a touch enabled 4.3 inch TFT-LCD (thin-film transistor liquid crystal display) module and an optional Wi-Fi module required for many of the streaming centric quick start guide applications. Third, the related software offering, including many downloadable source code packages has been vastly extended. And last, but not least, the eMPU main board has been enriched with additional functionality, while remaining software compatible.







Stream it! – RZ – V2.0 in action!

Stream it! – RZ – V2 comes with a pre-loaded demo package for quick evaluation. Next to a simple touch based selection menu, designers can test the new solution kit in a sample game scene, a notepad scene or a camera scene. Additional software examples will be added to this website continuously.



Stream it! – RZ – V2.0 is based on RZ/A1-LU

Version 2.0 of the new Stream-it! - RZ solution kit is based on the ARM CortexTM-A9 based RZ/A1-LU MPU with 3MB of embedded SRAM, giving the designer the unique opportunity to work with MPU performance at MCU cost. Compared with RZ/A1-L, which served as the brain of the original Stream-it solution kit, RZ/A1-LU has been enhanced with various high-end features, such as JPEG compression in hardware, dual DDR QSPI interface for fast serial NOR Flash connections and Ethernet AVB for high-speed audio and video transfer. On the security side, RZ/A1-LU comes equipped with enhanced secure JTAG, enhanced secure boot loader and a true random number generator (TRNG).The EthernetAVB has a dedicated direct memory access controller (AVB-DMAC) for transferring transmitted Ethernet frames to and received Ethernet frames from respective storage areas in the on-chip RAM at high speed.
