RUTRONIK EMBEDDED: New Development Board from Vekatech with 32-bit Embedded Microprocessor from Renesas


Distributor Rutronik presents Vekatech’s new development board VK-RZ/A1H with the embedded microprocessor RZ/A1H from Renesas with an ARM® Cortex®-A9. The board is

available via the webshop
The embedded microprocessor RZ/A1H with running at up to 400MHz clock speed integrates up to 10MB of on-chip RAM, OpenVG compatible graphics accelerator, dual LCD-drivers and camera inputs. The huge internal SRAM can hold two layers of WXGA size images making external SRAM redundant. Using serial QSPI-flashes enables compact HW-designs with low pin count ICs.
The VK-RZ/A1H board is equipped with the 10MB-version of the RZ/A1H in the package BGA256. The processor has 2x32MB SDRAM and 2x8MB QSPI-flash next to it. Debugging can be performed via standard J-TAG connector. Additional USB function interface, provided by a RL78/G1C connectivity microcontroller is connected to RZ/A1H’ UART. The Board Support Package includes U-Boot, Linux-GCC, FreeRTOS and CycloneTCP both compiled for EWARM from IAR and can be downloaded from Vekatech’s website ( An SD-Card bootloader allows for easy loading and running of applications from the internal SRAM, SDRAM or serial flash.
