SolidRun RZ/G2LC SOM is a system-on-module based on Renesas RZ/G2LC single or dual-core Cortex-A55/M33 processor and designed for AI-enhanced human-machine-interface (HMI) applications, industrial and building automation, video surveillance, IoT, etc…
The module is also equipped with 1GB DDR4 RAM, 8GB eMMC flash, and a wireless module with dual-band WiFi 4 and with Bluetooth 4.2 all packed into a tiny footprint measuring just 47 x 30mm that makes it suitable for space-constrained devices such as video doorbells and compact IP cameras.
SolidRun RZ/G2LC SOM specifications:
- SoC – Renesas RZ/G2LC single or dual-core Arm Cortex-A55 processor @ up to 1.2 GHz with, 1x Cortex-M33 real-time core, Arm Mali-G31 GPU, H.264 video decoder
- System Memory – 1GB DDR4 with inline ECC (up to 2GB)
- Storage – 8GB eMMC flash (up to 64GB), QSPI
- Wired – Analog Devices ADIN1200 10/100 Mbps Ethernet PHY (CNXSoft remark: As shown in the block diagram below, but that’s an odd choice because all Renesas RZ/G2L processors support Gigabit Ethernet)

- Humidity (non-condensing) – 10% – 90%
SolidRun will offer long-term Linux support through the Renesas CIP Linux distribution that gets updates for at least 10 years once a processor is released. SolidRun RZ/G2LC SOM is pin-to-pin compatible with the company’s NXP i.MX8 Mini SOM so customers can switch between the two as needed for a specific application, and the new SoM also works with the Hummingboard Pulse carrier board. An RZ/G2LC Starter Kit is also in the works, but no details are available at this time.
SolidRun RZ/G2LC SOM is available today for $67 USD and up depending on configuration and volume. Visit the product page for more details.

That is likely based on this device support for 10BASE-T1L which allows for a single pair to provide both power and data.
