Renesas RZ/G2L CPU module targets HMI and IoT gateway applications - CNX Software

MYIR MYC-YG2LX is Renesas RZ/G2L CPU module with up to 4GB DDR4, 32GB eMMC flash, and various I/Os such as gigabit Ethernet, USB 2.0, camera and display interfaces accessible through 222 castellated holes, and designed for advanced HMI, IoT edge gateways, and other embedded devices with video capabilities.

As a reminder, the Renesas RZ/G2L microprocessor comes with up to two Arm Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 1.2 GHz, one 200 MHz Cortex-M33 real-time core, a Mali-G31 GPU for 3D graphics interfaces, and a VPU capable of H.264 encoding/decoding. The company also offers the MYD-YG2LX development board based on the 45x43mm MYC-YG2LX CPU module with easy access to its interfaces.

MYiR Tech provides a Linux BSP based on the 5.10.83 kernel with OS images, driver source code, demo applications (charging pile application, PLC controller, engineering machinery scene), and a toolchain.

There’s also a development board for evaluation and to help with early software development.

MYD-YG2LX development board specifications:

The MYC-YG2LX module is available now for $32.80 for the MYC-YG2L23-8E1D-120-I with 1GB RAM, and $35.80 for the MYC-YG2L23-8E2D-120-I with 2GB RAM. The corresponding development kits are sold for $89 and $99, and all items can be purchased online directly via the product page along with optional accessories such as RGB and LVDS displays, the camera, and the MY-WIREDCOM add-on board.

The MYC-YG2LX is far from being the only Renesas RZ/G2L system-on-module, and there are plenty of alternatives such as MistySOM system-on-module, SolidRun RZ/G2LC SOM, Forlinx FET-G2LD-C CPU module, Geniatech SOM-G2L-OSM OSM Size-L module, and others.

Jean-Luc started CNX Software in 2010 as a part-time endeavor, before quitting his job as a software engineering manager, and starting to write daily news, and reviews full time later in 2011.

I don’t see any reason to use allwinner SOCs in industrial environment any more. Even the price seems reasonable, even we just know the module price, not the SOC in quantities.
