Renesas’ new RZ/V2L MPUs are designed for entry-level AI applications and include the DRP-AI (Dynamically Reconfigurable Processor) AI accelerator. This is complemented by optimizations such as matching the DRP-AI operating frequency and memory interface to an entry-level MPU. The DRP-AI provides both real-time AI inference and image processing functions, such as color correction and noise reduction. This allows users to implement AI-based image processing applications without an external ISP. Renesas offers a free DRP-AI Translator tool that automatically converts AI models into an executable format. Initial samples are available, with mass production scheduled to begin in December 2021.
In the combination of resolution and speed, the 3D sensors of the C6-3070 series by AT Automation Technology impress with the new WARP technology (Widely Advanced Rapid Profiling).
