Renesas Electronics Company launched a scalable System-on-Module (SoM) Sensible Mobility ARChitecture (SMARC) Profitable Mixture board resolution comprised of 10 Renesas ICs, together with microprocessor (MPU), energy and analog ICs. The board resolution speeds the event of synthetic intelligence (AI) IoT face/object detection, picture processing, and 4K video playback purposes, together with surveillance cameras, inspection tools, and a spread of commercial and constructing automation HMI and embedded imaginative and prescient programs.
The Renesas scalable SoM profitable combo board is predicated on the SMARC 2.zero business customary, which specifies an 82mm x 80mm kind issue. The SMARC SoM board presents designers a selection of three completely different scalable variations of the Renesas 64-bit RZ/G2 MPU: a RZ/G2N twin core Arm® Cortex®-A57 MPU working at 1.5 GHz for mid-range efficiency; the RZ/G2M MPU with dual-core Arm Cortex-A57 and quad-core Arm Cortex-A53 (1.2 GHz) for top efficiency; and the RZ/G2H MPU with quad-core Arm Cortex-A57 and quad-core Arm Cortex-A53 for ultra-high efficiency. All three MPUs (two cores as much as eight cores) function built-in 600 MHz PowerVR 3D graphics and a 4K UHD H.265 and H.264 codecs to fulfill the wants of various pc processing necessities.
“AI and video processing mix effectively collectively in embedded imaginative and prescient programs. The SMARC 2.zero profitable combo reference design presents a number of processors from the Renesas RZ/G2 Household, making it a superb AI improvement platform for accelerating time to market with decreased buyer danger,” mentioned DK Singh, Director, Techniques and Options Workforce at Renesas. “Our scalable resolution’s in depth on-board interfaces, giant reminiscence and programmable clocks for various wants makes it a superb turnkey resolution for a variety of purposes. And its business main RZ/G2 MPUs with 3D graphics engine and 4K UHD and full HD video codec supplies greater efficiency per greenback than competing 64-bit MPUs and GPUs.”
The SMARC SoM profitable combo board presents designers their selection of RZ/G2 MPU with as much as 35.6K DMIPS efficiency, plus 2GB to 4GB LPDDR4 RAM reminiscence, and 32GB eMMC. Every RZ/G2 MPU is able to working edge video analytics and AI frameworks. The MPUs function an built-in AI software program library, complete set of interfaces, error checking and correction (ECC) safety on each inner and exterior reminiscences, Linux OS, and a Verified Linux Package deal (VLP) examined and maintained by Renesas. The options additionally function Civil Infrastructure Platform (CIP) Tremendous Lengthy-Time period Assist (SLTS) kernel, and a Linux kernel bundled with a software program improvement surroundings. Better of all, the SMARC SoM board supplies an optimized energy and programmable timing tree to help the RZ/G2 MPU with all kinds of purposes.
