Renesas Electronics has introduced the RZ/G2 Group of 64-bit Arm Cortex-A57 and Cortex-A53-based MPUs for industrial automation and building automation applications, as the second generation of the RZ/G Series. The four new MPUs are supported by the company's RZ/G Linux Platform bringing increased performance, security, reliability, and long-term software support to mission-critical applications as well as standard applications with high-quality requirements.

“RZ/G2 MPUs are designed to meet the needs of developers using embedded controllers in industrial automation and building automation applications,” said Shigeki Kato, vice president of Renesas’ Enterprise Infrastructure Business Division, Industrial Solution Business Unit. “These applications demand higher performance, comprehensive, integrated interfaces, higher reliability, and long-term software support, exactly what RZ/G2 MPUs deliver.”

“Renesas is the first member to support the new 64-bit Arm CIP kernel, and we are delighted that the new RZ/G2 MPUs will serve as the first reference hardware for Arm64 for the certification and release of CIP Linux packages,” said Urs Gleim, CIP governing board chairman and head of Smart Embedded Systems for Siemens AG. “Ultimately, this gets us one step closer to our mission of SLTS for critical systems that are the backbone of our communities worldwide.”
