Renesas RZ/G2L & RZ/G2LC 64-bit MPUs

Enable Entry-Level HMI with AI Inference Processing Features

RZ/G2L and RZ/G2LC are equipped with all the functions required for entry-level HMI applications used in industrial and building automation.

Equipped with all the necessary HMI features

  • Enhanced CPU performance in entry-level products
    First use of the Cortex-A55 core in the RZ/G Series. Improved processing performance by 20% compared to conventional Cortex-A53 at the same frequency. Select a dual or single core device.
  • Image processing without heavy CPU load
    Dedicated image processing hardware (video codec, graphics engine). Compresses/decompresses videos and handles graphics without imposing a load on the software.
  • Image input/output selectable per task
    Supports MIPI-CSI and parallel interface for camera connections, MIPI-DSI and parallel interface for LCD panel connections. Enables user to select interface based on the task at hand: MIPI (generally used for high-resolution) or parallel interface (for low-res camera or LCD panel use).
  • Compatible with communication buses in industrial equipment
    Industrial HMI is expected to provide both display functions and communication functions, ensuring connectivity with industrial equipment. The RZ/G2L and RZ/G2LC CAN (Controller Area Network), used as the industrial equipment communication bus, is equipped with two channels of CAN-FD (Flexible Data rate) that enable faster communications.
  • Scalable as an IoT device
    Equipped with two channels of Gigabit Ethernet for use as a gateway to handle two networks in addition to HMI functions. The RZ/G Series is the first of its kind to provide two channels of Giga Ethernet.
  • Enhanced security functions
    Protecting customer system with secure boot, trust zone, and secure debugging.
