The Renesas RZ/A2M MPU uses the company’s Dynamically Reconfigurable Processor technology to achieve real-time image processing at low power consumption. The RZ/A2M offers features ideal for applications using cameras with its DRP technology and large capacity on-chip RAM, negating the need for external DRAM. It also directly supports the MIPI camera interface. Renesas has added two-channel Ethernet support for more connectivity options, and enhanced secure functionality with an on-chip hardware encryption accelerator.
Samples of the RZ/A2M with DRP are available now. The RZ/A2M MPUs are available with a development board, reference software, and DRP image-processing library. Mass production is scheduled to start in the first quarter of 2019.
