RENESAS ELECTRONICS RZ/V2H microprocessors (MPUs) target high-performance robotics applications, delivering high levels of performance and enables both vision AI and real-time control capabilities. Device comes with a new generation of firm’s proprietary AI accelerator, DRP (Dynamically Reconfigurable Processor)-AI3, delivering 10 TOPS/W power efficiency, a 10-fold improvement over previous models. Additionally, pruning technology employed in the DRP-AI3 accelerator significantly improves AI computing efficiency, boosting AI inference performance up to 80 TOPS. This performance boost allows engineers to process vision AI applications directly at edge AI devices without relying on cloud computing platforms.

MPU incorporates four Arm Cortex-A55 CPU cores with a maximum operating frequency of 1.8GHz for Linux application processing, two Cortex-R8 cores running at 800MHz for high-performance real-time processing and one Cortex-M33 as a sub core. By integrating these cores into a single chip, device can manage both vision AI and real-time control tasks, making it suitable for demanding robotics applications of the future.
