Rutronik offers Renesas’ RZ/G1C microprocessor for HMI applications
The RZ/G1C microprocessor from Renesas is now available from Rutronik UK. The latest addition to Renesas’ RZ/G-series is suitable for applications ranging from entry-level solutions to high-complexity embedded systems. Rutronik also notes that its support for a 3D graphics engine and a Full HD (FHD) video decoder, allows fast development of powerful HMI and visual applications.
The RZ/G1C is based on the 1.0GHz dual-core Arm Cortex-A7 CPU and offers performance and balance for networked HMI systems, says Rutronik. It supports a variety of interfaces, including USB and Gigabit Ethernet (GbE). Full pin compatibility among the derivatives means that users can replace one RZ series product with another – whether low or high-end for flexibility and headroom in design projects.
The microprocessor has an integrated PowerVR SGX5313D graphics engine and an FHD H.264 video decoder. It also offers one analogue and two digital camera inputs for embedded computer vision and other video applications. The RZ/G1C is also optimised for Linux-based application development.
It does not require a power sequencer or power management integrated circuit (PMIC) on the circuit board, which means that bill of material costs are reduced and the development and production of circuit boards is simplified, adds Rutronik UK.
More information on the Renesas RZ/G1C is available on the e-commerce platform Rutronik24.com. Orders can be placed directly via the website.
