Very high processing performance with 1.5 GHz dual-core Arm® Cortex®-A15 CPUs, with 3D graphics and video codec engine.


RZ/G1M embedded processors are equipped with a dual-core 3D graphics engine (PowerVR SGX544MP2 at 520 MHz), two 32-bit DDR3 memory channels, and they support full high-definition video encoding and decoding. With built-in USB 3.0, PCI Express, and SATA high-speed interfaces, they are ideal for high-end human-machine interface (HMI) applications as well as image identification and authentication. They are fully scalable with the RZ/G1N MPU.
