Affords selection of three RZ/G2 MPUs for scalable efficiency in AI IoT face/object detection & picture processing functions
To hurry the event of synthetic intelligence (AI) IoT face/object detection, picture processing and 4K video playback functions, together with surveillance cameras, inspection gear, and a variety of commercial and constructing automation HMI and embedded imaginative and prescient methods, right here’s introducing a scalable System-on-Module (SoM) Sensible Mobility ARChitecture (SMARC) board answer that includes of 10 ICs, together with microprocessor (MPU), energy and analogue ICs of Renesas Electronics.
The scalable SoM profitable combo board (which was in-built collaboration with RelSys Applied sciences) relies on the SMARC 2.zero business commonplace, which specifies an 82mm x 80mm kind issue. The SMARC SoM board provides designers a selection of three totally different scalable variations of the Renesas 64-bit RZ/G2 MPU:
- An RZ/G2N dual-core Arm Cortex-A57 MPU working at 1.5 GHz for mid-range efficiency
- An RZ/G2M MPU with dual-core Arm Cortex-A57 and quad-core Arm Cortex-A53 (1.2 GHz) for prime efficiency
- An RZ/G2H MPU with quad-core Arm Cortex-A57 and quad-core Arm Cortex-A53 for ultra-high efficiency.
All three MPUs (two cores as much as eight cores) characteristic built-in 600 MHz PowerVR 3D graphics and a 4K UHD H.265 and H.264 codecs to fulfil totally different laptop processing necessities.
Promising AI Functionality
The SMARC SoM profitable combo board provides designers their selection of RZ/G2 MPU with as much as 35.6K DMIPS efficiency, plus 2GB to 4GB LPDDR4 RAM and 32GB eMMC. Every RZ/G2 MPU is able to working edge video analytics and AI frameworks.
The MPUs characteristic an built-in AI software program library, complete set of interfaces, error checking and correction (ECC) safety on each inside and exterior reminiscences, Linux OS and a Verified Linux Bundle (VLP). The options additionally characteristic Civil Infrastructure Platform (CIP) Tremendous Lengthy-Time period Assist (SLTS) kernel and a Linux kernel bundled with a software program growth setting.
The SMARC SoM board offers optimised energy and programmable timing tree to help the RZ/G2 MPU with all kinds of functions.
Key Options of the SMARC 2.zero SoM Board
- Assist for dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Low Vitality (BLE) for wi-fi communication
- Quick communication interfaces akin to USB, SATA, LVDS, HDMI, CSI, I2S, PCIe, and Gigabit Ethernet are simply accessible by the SMARC 2.zero connector
- Quick start-up boot from QSPI or eMMC reminiscence
- Options ISL1208 low-power real-time clock for calendar-based functions powered by a small 400nA battery, or supercapacitor throughout an influence failure
- Options P8330 energy administration IC (PMIC) for delivering energy to a number of provide rails
- Two clock sources provided by Renesas small kind issue VersaClock 3S programmable clocks with built-in 32.768kHz DCO powered by a single coin cell battery throughout an influence failure
- PCIe clock is generated with the Renesas 9FGV0641 supporting six 100 MHz differential clock outputs, with PCIe Gen 1-Four help
- Straightforward connection to 2 exterior cameras and LCD panel with capacitive contact
“AI and video processing mix properly collectively in embedded imaginative and prescient methods. The SMARC 2.zero profitable combo reference design provides a number of processors from the Renesas RZ/G2 Household, making it a wonderful AI growth platform for accelerating time to market with decreased buyer threat,” stated DK Singh, Director, Programs and Options Staff at Renesas. “The scalable answer’s intensive onboard interfaces, giant reminiscence and programmable clocks for various wants make it a wonderful turnkey answer for a variety of functions. And its RZ/G2 MPUs with 3D graphics engine and 4K UHD and full HD video codec present greater efficiency per greenback than competing 64-bit MPUs and GPUs.”
The Scalable AI SMARC SoM Profitable Combo Resolution Board and design information can be found from Renesas’ worldwide gross sales and international distribution companions.
The board can be out there for buy from RelSys Applied sciences.
