Renesas Introduces RZ/G3S: Power-Efficient SoC for IoT Edge with Advanced Connectivity
RZ/G3S 64-bit MPU for IoT Edge and Gateway Devices
Renesas has introduced the RZ/G3S, a new addition to its RZ/G microprocessor family, tailored for the burgeoning Internet of Things (IoT) market. This system-on-chip (SoC) features a single Arm Cortex-A55 core alongside two Cortex-M33 cores, optimized for system control, power management, and sensor communication. The primary CPU supports a Verified Linux Package (VLP) for efficient boot-up and runs at speeds up to 1.1GHz. The SoC boasts 1MB of on-chip RAM and a 16-bit DDR4 interface for external memory expansion.
One of the key highlights of the RZ/G3S is its low power consumption, with standby power as low as 10µW, thanks to integrated Error Correction Code (ECC) and efficient sub-CPU operation. Renesas emphasizes the SoC’s suitability for IoT gateway applications by showcasing its integration into a single-board computer reference design, leveraging its advanced peripherals such as gigabit Ethernet, USB, PCIe, and various communication interfaces.
“Renesas’ RZ/G has seen a steady increase in adoption in the global industrial human machine interface market,” said Daryl Khoo, Vice President of Embedded Processing 1st Division at Renesas. “The RZ/G3S represents the next generation products that will extend our reach to the rapidly growing 5G IoT and Gigabit Wi-Fi 7 gateway markets. Renesas has been aggressively expanding our connectivity portfolio in these markets through strategic acquisitions to offer advanced connectivity solutions that are power efficient at the system level and enhance data utilization.”
The RZ/G3S is now available for purchase, with pricing starting at $19.75 before volume discounts. Renesas aims to extend its market reach to 5G IoT and gigabit Wi-Fi 7 gateway markets with this new offering, emphasizing power efficiency and enhanced connectivity solutions.
