The Renesas RZ Family of high-end 32 and 64-bit Arm®-based microprocessors (MPUs) enables the solutions required for the smart society of the future. Through a variety of Arm Cortex®-A7, A9, A15, A53, A57 and R4-based devices, engineers can easily implement high-resolution human machine interfaces (HMI), embedded vision, embedded artificial intelligence (e-AI) and real-time control and industrial ethernet connectivity.
The RZ/A2M MPUs feature Renesas’ proprietary Dynamically Reconfigurable Processor (DRP) technology that can accelerate image processing 10X or more and was winner of Electronic Products’ 2018 Product of the Year Award. RZ/A2M innovation also includes 4 MB of on-chip SRAM, MIPI camera interface, a two-channel Ethernet interface, and hardware security features for crypto acceleration and establishing a Root of Trust.
The RZ/G2 64-bit Arm® Cortex®-A57 and Cortex®-A53-based MPUs deliver industry-leading high performance, advanced graphics capabilities, and high-bandwidth ECC memory interfaces with super long-term Linux support. With up to 4K UHD graphics capability, the RZ/G2 MPUs are ideal for advanced human-machine interfaces (HMI) and high performance AI inferencing.
The RZ/A MPUs combine a 32-bit Arm® Corex® A9 CPU with up to 10 MB of on-chip SRAM and ability to execute code in-place (XIP) from QSPI flash which greatly simplifies board design and reduces system cost. Coupled with their high-bandwidth 128-bit wide parallel data bus, the RZ/A MPUs support faster graphics, digital audio signal processing, device control, and more.

Optimal solutions for human machine interface (HMI) and system control that fuse Renesas' microprocessor experience with the global ecosystem of Arm® partners.
The high-performance RZ/A Series MPUs retain the ease-of-use of Renesas microcontrollers (MCUs), while combining Renesas' proprietary technologies and the Arm® ecosystem. RZ/A devices offer up to 10 MB of on-chip SRAM, which can buffer up-to WXGA resolution graphics without the need for external SDRAM. This capability is married with the device’s ability to execute code in-place (XIP) from QSPI flash, which greatly simplifies board design. Coupled with its high-bandwidth 128-bit wide parallel data bus, the RZ/A supports faster graphics, digital audio signal processing, device control, and more.
RZ/G Series MPUs extends the capabilities of RZ/A Series to deliver high-end performance for graphics, multi-stream video, and embedded vision thanks to features like camera input, 3D graphics accelerators, Full HD video codec, and GbE. Renesas also offers the RZ/G Linux platform, which is a user-friendly software development environment for customers who wish to lower the barriers and cost of Linux adoption and maintenance. The RZ/G Linux Platform enables super-long-term Civil Infrastructure (CIP) Linux support in an industrial grade verified Linux package, which complements Renesas’ high quality silicon.
The second products in the RZ Family. These high-end controllers leverage tightly-coupled memory to achieve high speed and high responsivity, and also support multi-protocol industrial Ethernet communications.
RZ/N Series is a family of scalable and performant Arm® based communication devices that support multiple Industrial Ethernet protocols. An API towards the application software makes the communication software transparent and lets developers focus on what they know best - solving customers’ problems.
