SolidRun releases SOM module based on 64-bit Renesas RZ/G2LC SoC

Jun 21, 2022 — by Giorgio Mendoza 2,479 views

SolidRun announced today a partnership with Renesas Electronics at Embedded World. According to SolidRun, the RZ/G2LC is the first System on Module (SOM) based on the 64-bit RZ/G2LC System on Chip from Renesas. The company is expecting to target applications such as IoT solutions, video surveillance, HMI applications and industrial automation solutions. 

The compact SOM module integrates up to two Cortex-A55 processors with a frequency up to 1.20GHz and a Cortex-M33 for secured IoT applications. The device also features an Arm Mali-G31 GPU for image processing and AI inference with support for OpenGL/CL 2.0.

The RZ/G2LC SOM provides up to 1GB DDR4, 8GB of eMMC storage and QSPI support. SD support is provided only if Wi-Fi or eMMC features are omitted.

For connectivity, there is support for onboard Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2 and 100Base-T (ethernet). There is one MIPI-DSI for video output and a single camera interface via MIPI-CSI.

Additionally, SolidRun mentioned they are offering the option to make these SOMs pin-to-pin compatible with other i.MX8 Mini SOMs from them to avoid possible shortage problems in the future.

The compact module measures about 47 x 30mm and they are also available for industrial temperatures i.e. -40°C to 85°C. 

The company is also offering the Hummingboard RZ/G2LC Single Board Computer to get access to all the hardware peripherals from the RZ/G2LC SoM.
