Mouser Electronics, Inc., is the industry’s leading New Product Introduction distributor
with the widest selection of semiconductors and electronic components, now stocks the RZ/Five-RISC-V microprocessor from Renesas Electronics. Expanding on Renesas’ previously available Arm CPU core-based MPUs, the RZ/Five is the first general-purpose MPU on the market based on an Andes AX45MP that uses a RISC-V CPU instruction set architecture. . The enhanced 64-bit RISC-V MPU offers users greater flexibility by providing tools and building blocks to help bring designs to market faster, including support through Renesas’ RZ Partner Ecosystem.
The Renesas RZ/Five-RISC-V microprocessor, available from Mouser Electronics, is a single-core, 64-bit processor with a maximum operating frequency of 1 GHz. The MPU has 128KB of internal SRAM with ECC and 16-bit DDR4-1600 or DDR3L-1333 memory interfaces with in-line ECC supporting up to 4GB of RAM. The peripheral function includes support for several interfaces, including two Gigabit Ethernet MAC channels, two USB 2.0 channels and two serial CAN/CAN-FD interfaces. Additional features of the RZ/Five include a 2-channel, 12-bit ADC, thermal sensor, four I 2 C interfaces, three SPI interfaces and GPIOs. For security support, the MPU also has 1Kbit OTP memory, secure boot, a crypto engine and secure JTAG. For added design flexibility, the RZ/Five’s peripheral functions and package are pin-compatible with the Arm core-based RZ/G2UL, allowing easy reuse of existing and proven designs.
The RZ/Five-RISC-V microprocessor is available in a 13 mm x 13 mm BGA-361 or 11 mm x 11 mm BGA-266 package. The BGA-361 option includes a 2-channel Gigabit Ethernet Interface, while the BGA-266 option includes a 1-channel Gigabit Ethernet Interface. Both packages have a 0.5 mm pitch.
Developed expressly for Internet of Things endpoint devices, the RZ/Five-RISC-V microprocessor is well suited for applications such as Industrial IoT or industrial gateways used for entry-class social infrastructure control and industrial control, respectively . The microprocessor also offers long-term Linux support through a Verified Linux Package with Civil Infrastructure Platform Linux to address corporate infrastructures and industrial applications that require high reliability and long service life.
For evaluation and development, Mouser offers the RZ/Five evaluation board kit, which provides a complete demonstration and development platform for the microprocessor. The kit is available for purchase on the Mouser website and consists of a Module Board (SOM) and a Carrier Board, and includes a wide range of interfaces such as Gbit-Ethernet, CAN, and USB 2.0.
