Sep 27, 2023 — by Giorgio Mendoza 276 views

ARIES Embedded has recently unveiled two embedded platforms based on the Renesas RZ Family architecture. These SMARC-compliant modules serve a wide range of purposes, from rapid prototyping to applications in both commercial and industrial settings.

According to the product announcement, the “MRZG2LS SoM integrates the single/dual Cortex-A55/Cortex-M33, while the MRZV2LS is equipped with a Cortex-A55 (1.2GHz) CPU and built-in AI accelerator ‘DRP-AI’ for vision applications”.   


  • MRZG2LS – Single or Dual Cortex-A55 (up to 1.0GHz); H.264 Video codec; Arm Cortex-M33 coprocessor
