RENESAS ELECTRONICS RZ/A3UL group of microprocessors (MPU) enables both a high-definition human-machine interface (HMI) and quick start-up for applications that require high throughput and real-time capabilities. Product series allows users to achieve full potential of a real-time operating system (RTOS) while leveraging the performance boost provided by the 64-bit Arm Cortex-A55 CPU core with a maximum operating frequency of 1GHz. Using an RTOS allows systems to start up instantly, in less than a second after boot-up. This feature is suitable for systems that require a fast response time such as industrial equipment, home appliances and office automation equipment with liquid crystal displays or control panels, as well as audio equipment and POS terminals. Product integrates an Octal-SPI memory interface that facilitates simpler and more compact board designs. Device supports the industry’s two leading RTOSes: FreeRTOS and Azure RTOS.
