The V2H-based SOM (system-on-module) and SBC (single-board-computer) boast a Quad Cortex®-A55 (1.8GHz) CPU and an integrated AI accelerator, DRP-AI3, optimized for a range of AI-driven vision applications.

Kfar Saba, Israel, 5 March 2024 — IMDT, a world-leading provider of cutting-edge vision and AI-powered products and systems, today announced a new line of power-efficient, cost-effective and ready-to-use system-on-module (SOM) and single-board-computer (SBC) solutions, based on the new Renesas RZ/V2H microprocessor.

The IMDT Renesas V2H-based family of products delivers advanced functionality and high performance for Robotic, IoT and industrial applications. Equipped with a powerful, Arm-based CPU and Renesas proprietary AI accelerator, these products support diverse uses, including high-bandwidth communications, machine learning, and high-definition image processing.

The RZ/V2H processor features Renesas’s proprietary AI accelerator, the DRP (Dynamically Reconfigurable Processor)-AI3, which boasts a power efficiency of 10 TOPS/W. Additionally, it integrates four Arm® Cortex®-A55 CPU cores that reach a maximum operating frequency of 1.8 GHz, tailored for Linux application processing. For high-performance real-time processing, it includes two Cortex-R8 cores operating at 800 MHz, alongside one Cortex-M33 core serving as a subcore. By integrating these cores into a single chip, the device effectively manages both vision-AI and real-time control tasks, making it ideal for demanding robotics applications.

“IMDT’s mission is to simplify and accelerate the development of cutting-edge vision and AI-powered products and systems,” says Avi Shimon, CEO of IMDT. “The RZ/V2H, with its AI capabilities and multisensor support, is ready for our next-generation products that target the complexity of multisensor and AI requirements for new-generation products across various markets—Robotics, Autonomous Machines, and Industrial.”

The IMDT V2H based SOM supports 4 x 4-lane MIPI CSI-2 connections, enabling attachment of up to four cameras. Additionally, the full module provides customizable options such as onboard Wi-Fi/Bluetooth, various memory and storage capacities, and PHY configurations, allowing users to tailor the system to their specific needs.           The IMDT V2H SBC carrier board transforms the IMDT V2H SOM into a compact, high-performance mini-computer. Measuring only 125 x 80 x 20 mm, this fully customizable small form factor SBC features a cost-effective system design, ideal for diverse applications in robotics, drones, and smart city projects. The V2H SBC provides a multitude of assembly options, personalized and adjusted to meet specific customer needs, alongside comprehensive onboard connectivity. It presents developers with an energy-efficient solution that occupies minimal space.

The V2H product family and its evaluation kits are currently open for pre-order. Pricing begins at $149 for the SOM, $299 for the SBC, and $749 for the EVK.
