Embedded boards are in SiPs prepare for industrial gateways
Two boards from Aries Embedded are based on Renesas’ RZ microprocessors and are intended for use in industrial controllers and IoT devices.
The MSRZG2UL and MSRZFive system-in-packages (SiPs) are based on Renesas’ single-core microprocessors RZ/G2UL and RZ/Five. The RZ / G2UL microprocessor includes a Cortex-A55 (1.0GHz) CPU and a CortexM33 coprocessor, while the RZ/Five has a RISC-V CPU core (AX45MP Single) running at 1.0GHz. “Renesas’ CPUs offer numerous interfaces and are therefore the ideal basis for our new system-on-modules for industrial gateway devices,” explained Andreas Widder, managing director of Aries Embedded. The MSRZ SiPs are used in industrial controllers, IoT devices and other embedded systems with simple GUI functions, he added.
In the smallest size (S), the MSRZ SiP SoMs measure just 30 x 30 mm each. The modules conform to the SGET OSM standard and have an LCD controller. They support 512Mbyte to 4Gbyte of DDR4 RAM and 4Gbyte of eMMC NAND flash. Interface choices include camera input (MIPI-CSI), display output (Parallerl-IF), USB2.0 2ch, SD 2ch, CAN (CAN-FD) and Gigabit Ethernet 2-Channel. The temperature range is -25 to +85 degrees C and -40 to +85 degrees C for industrial environments.
The MSRZG2UL and MSRZFive SiPs will be available as samples from the third quarter of 2022. Series production will start in the fourth quarter of 2022.
