In this seminar, we will discuss how several megabytes of on-chip RAM embedded inside an ARM Cortex-A9 based microprocessor (MPU) can supercharge your HMI system. We’ll show you how to reduce cost and board space by eliminating SDRAM and how to achieve higher performance per unit cost by leveraging the highly parallel memory architecture inside a Renesas RZ/A MPU. We will also discuss how real-time operating systems (RTOSs) can simplify and add flexibility to your design experience.

Attendees Will Learn:

  • How to save board space with the Renesas RZ/A MPU
  • How to avoid DRAM procurement issues by using the Renesas RZ/A MPU
  • How the Renesas RZ MPU lets you achieve higher performance at lower frequencies versus executing from external DRAM due to an advanced on-chip memory architecture that maximizes performance per unit frequency, cost, and power
