The RZ/N1D Group features a dual ARM® Cortex®-A7 and is suitable for high-end applications such as network switches, PLCs, and gateways. The RZ/N1S Group features a single ARM® Cortex®-A7 and is intended for mid-range applications such as nano-PLCs and operator terminals. Finally, the RZ/N1L Group is suitable mainly for applications such as industrial equipment communication blocks or slave devices such as remote I/O units and enables system developers to develop devices that are more compact and low cost.
Renesas is positioning the new RZ/N Series as a single-chip solution offering support for the leading industrial network protocols and the latest network redundancy protocols used in factory networks.
Samples and solution kit of the RZ/N1D will be available from April 2017. Samples and solution kits for the RZ/N1S Group and RZ/N1L Group are expected to become available in the first half of 2018. Sample software and protocol stacks will also be available, together with evaluation boards. Protocol stacks from Renesas software partners will also be available from April 2017. (Availability schedules will differ depending on the country or region and are subject to change without notice.)
(Note 1) The R-IN Engine incorporates intellectual property (IP) exclusive to Renesas and integrates a 32-bit MCU, real-time OS accelerator, and Ethernet accelerator to enable efficient processing of network software.
(Note 2) Support is to be rolled out sequentially.
(Note 3) As of March 6, 2017. Based on Renesas Research.
(Note 4) Renesas provides Linux sample code, but all supported operating systems must be obtained from their respective owners.
