The RZ/V series are microprocessors (MPUs) with a Dynamically Reconfigurable Processor (DRP)-AI, Renesas' original AI accelerator that achieves both high AI inference performance and low power consumption. The RZ/V2M has a high-performance image signal processor (ISP) that supports 4K/30fps, and the RZ/V2L has a 3D graphics engine and versatile peripheral functions for a wide range of applications.
