Microprocessor for robotics features vision AI, real-time control, an AI accelerator for processing, and multiple CPU cores for performance.


Renesas Electronics Corporation has expanded its RZ Family of microprocessors with a new RZ/V2H device for robotics applications. The RZ/V2H offers performance with vision AI and real-time control capabilities. It features the DRP-AI3 AI accelerator, delivering 10 TOPS/W power efficiency and boosting AI inference performance up to 80 TOPS. This allows for processing vision AI applications directly on edge AI devices.

The MPU integrates four Arm Cortex-A55 CPU cores, two Cortex-R8 cores, and one Cortex-M33 core into a single chip, suitable for robotics applications. Its lower power consumption eliminates the need for cooling fans, enabling smaller, less expensive, and more reliable systems.

The company also claims to have developed the OpenCV Accelerator using its DRP technology, which speeds up the processing of the OpenCV library for computer vision processing. To support development, Renesas has released AI Applications, a library of pre-trained models, and an AI SDK for rapid development of AI applications.

The company has created the “Visual Detection Single Board Computer,” combining the RZ/V2H with other components to support industrial robots and machinery. This solution is part of Renesas’ Winning Combinations, system architectures designed to accelerate the design process and bring products to market more quickly.

“As a market leader in motor control microprocessors, Renesas is ready to take on the next challenge to drive the advancement of the robotics market with AI technology,” said Daryl Khoo, Vice President of the Embedded Processing 1st Business Division at Renesas. “The RZ/V2H will facilitate the development of next-generation autonomous robots with vision AI capabilities that can think independently and control movements in real-time.”

“We are thrilled to be part of the launch of the RZ/V2H, which combines AI technology with real-time control,” says Rolf Segger, founder of SEGGER Microcontroller GmbH.
