The RZ/Five evaluation kit (EVK) is ideal for evaluating and developing with the Renesas RZ/Five MPU. The EVK includes the RZ/Five SMARC v2.1 System on Module (SoM) and its carrier board. The carrier board can be used with the RZ/G2L, RZ/G2LC, RZ/G2UL, and RZ/V2L SoMs which are designed according to the SMARC v2.1 standard. This provides a seamless and flexible platform to evaluate the RZ family of devices.
