Renesas Electronics has unveiled the RZ/G microprocessor (MPU) series that the company said expedites the development of high-performance Linux and Android applications. Aimed at industrial, home appliances, and office equipment employing a human machine interface (HMI), the MPU extends the capabilities of the RZ/A series, which supports 2D graphics at up to WXGA resolution, to yield remarkable performance in applications that include image processing, video sensing, and 3D graphics and multimedia at up to 1080p resolution.

Key features of the RZ/G series:

(1) High performance for enhanced UI expressiveness and video sensing

RZ/G series

The RZ/G series used Renesas' proprietary Full HD video codec in addition to the PowerVR SGX540 (RZ/G1E) or PowerVR SGX544MP2 (RZ/G1M) 3D graphics core from Imagination Technologies. These IP blocks make it possible to develop highly effective UI on products ranging from hand-held medical devices to digital signage by incorporating elements such as simple still images, 3D graphics, plus video content. This functionality claims to improve UI expressiveness and add value to new products.

The RZ/G series is composed of two product versions: the RZ/G1E with dual ARM Cortex-A7 CPU cores operating at up to 1GHz and the RZ/G1M with dual Cortex-A15 CPU cores operating at up to 1.5GHz. This range of high-end options lets customers tune their designs for either power or performance. Each RZ/G device includes an 800MHz DDR3 external memory interface, which provides ample performance margin for applications such as image processing of multiple video streams for monitoring systems and video sensing such as face recognition.
