Renesas RZ/N2L 3-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch
64-Bit & 32-Bit Arm®-Based High-End MPU Enables Various Industrial Applications to Easily Implement Industrial Ethernet and TSN
Renesas RZ/N2L is an Ethernet communication microprocessor (MPU) that enables customers to easily implement industrial Ethernet and TSN in various IoT and industrial applications like drives, gateways, remote IO and more. The RZ/N2L has functions such as an advanced 3-port Gigabit Ethernet switch with TSN, EtherCAT® slave controller, and supports major industrial Ethernet protocols such as EtherCAT, PROFINET RT/IRT, EtherNet/IP™, and OPC UA.
The Renesas RZ/N2L is optimized for network companion chip use-cases. It easily connects to existing systems through its parallel or serial host interface without requirement of major changes. The real-time protocol is managed by its Arm® Cortex®-R52 core with a maximum operating frequency of 400MHz and large on-chip RAM with ECC, unloading the application CPU. Thanks to its rich peripheral functions such as PWM timer, delta-sigma (ΔΣ) interface, ADC, and more the device also realizes applications like remote I/O, sensor-hub systems, inverter, and gateway as a single chip.
A rich software support package with peripheral drivers and many application examples enables rapid evaluation and prototyping.

Renesas Starter Kit+ for RZ/N2L
Renesas Starter Kit+ for RZ/N2L is for evaluation or development using the RZ/N2L MPU.
With the on-board emulator, you can start evaluation by simply connecting the bundled cable with your PC. This product has rich functional ICs such as Gigabit Ethernet PHY and Octal Flash, you can fully evaluate functions without an extension board.
The evaluation board can be powered directly from the USB port of the user’s computer or from a 1632-coin cell battery to enable fully autonomous (untethered) data logging.
