The RZ/V series is a microprocessor (MPU) that incorporates Renesas' proprietary AI accelerator, Dynamically Reconfigurable Processor (DRP)-AI, which combines high AI inference performance and low power consumption. The RZ/V2M is equipped with a high-performance image signal processor (ISP) that supports 4K/30fps; the RZ/V2L has a 3D graphics engine and highly versatile peripheral functions for a wide range of applications, The RZ/V2MA add an OpenCV accelerator to the DRP-AI to add value to a variety of image processing equipment.

AI Accelerator: DRP-AI

DRP-AI is Renesas' dedicated hardware that provides high performance and low power consumption, and the ability to respond to evolution.

OpenCV Accelerator

OpenCV Accelerator leverages Renesas' unique, highly flexible DRP technology.
