RZ/V2L is equipped with a Cortex®-A55 (1.2 GHz) CPU and built-in AI accelerator "DRP-AI" for vision, which is Renesas' original technology. It also has a 16-bit DDR3L/DDR4 interface and a built-in 3D graphics engine with Arm Mali-G31 and video codec (H.264).

DRP-AI’s excellent power efficiency eliminates the need for heat dissipation measures such as heat sinks or cooling fans. AI can be implemented cost efficiently not only in consumer electronics and industrial equipment, but also in a wide range of applications such as point-of-sale (POS) terminals for retail. Also the DRP-AI provides both real-time AI inference and image processing functions with the capabilities essential for camera support such as color correction and noise reduction. This enables customers to implement AI-based vision applications without requiring an external image signal processor (ISP).

The RZ/V2L is also package- and pin-compatible with the RZ/G2L. This allows RZ/G2L users to easily upgrade to the RZ/V2L for additional AI functions without needing to modify the system configuration, keeping migration costs low.
