Industrial multi-protocol implementation made easy.

RZ/N1 is a family of scalable and performant Arm® based communication devices that support multiple industrial network protocols and redundant network technologies on a single device. The RZ/N1 contains a dual/single Arm® Cortex®-A7, up to 6MB of SRAM, and a 5-port Gigabit switch with advanced networking features, on-chip security, and leverages the industry proven Renesas R-IN engine (“R-IN engine”) that improves network performance.

The RZ/N1 is ideal for many industrial applications such as intelligent gateways and protocol converters, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), remote IO units, and networked intelligent endpoints for the Industry 4.0/Industrial IoT realm of applications.

To simplify protocol implementation, the RZ/N1 features a unified protocol communication abstraction layer that allows the user to quickly switch from one protocol to another, all in the same platform.

Features

  • Dual/Single Arm® Cortex®-A7 500MHz
  • SRAM Max. 6MB
  • Gigabit Ethernet Switch Max. 5 ports
  • R-IN enginge Supported

RZ/N1 Solution Kit – Fast prototyping for Multi-protocol Industrial Ethernet

The RZ/N1D solution kit is an all-in-the-box package for fast evaluation and rapid prototyping of multiple industrial Ethernet protocols.

RZ/N1 is a family of scalable Arm® based industrial Ethernet switches. The performant Arm® Cortex®-A7 CPU on board, makes them an ideal choice for building Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC), industrial switches, gateways or operator terminals. Due to the unique combination of hardware and software, developers can easily exchange various industrial Ethernet protocols and focus only on developing the application software.
