System-on-Module takes RZ/G Series MCUs to high-end industrial applications

February 18, 2016 // By Julien Happich
Renesas Electronics Europe and emtrion have jointly developed the emCON-RZ/G1E System-On-Module (SOM) board, designed for the quick and easy evaluation and production of high-end industrial applications using Renesas' RZ/G Series of microprocessors.

RZ/G MPUs are based on ARM Cortex-A7 and ARM Cortex-A15 dual core architectures and provide designers with the choice of high performance (ARM Cortex-A15) and high power efficiency (ARM Cortex-A7). RZ/G MPUs excel in the industrial MPU market place with a very rich feature set, including up to 10,500 DMIPS of computational performance, DDR3 memory interface, powerful 3D hardware rendering (173M polygons/sec), Full HD video playback at 60 frames per second, PCI Express, SATA, Gigabit EthernetAVB, USB3.0 and more.

The emCON-RZ/G modules allow quick and easy evaluation, and have the additional benefit of being fully production ready. This minimises costly development time and effort for products that differentiate their manufacturers by enabling quick time-to-market. All the modules within the new emCON-series are pin-to-pin compatible, allowing the system manufacturer to migrate easily between them. The modules are provided with the in-house Linux Board Support Package (BSP). For the operating systems Windows Embedded Compact 7, WEC2013, QNX or Android, the BSPs are available on request.
