ARIES Embedded has unveiled the FIVEberry 64-bit RISC-V community board for fast prototyping fitted with an OSM-compatible MSRZFive system-in-package (SiP) powered by a 1GHz Renesas RZ/Five microprocessor.
The board is equipped with a module with 512 DDR4, a 128MBit SPI NOR flash, a microSD card on the bottom of the board, two Gigabit Ethernet ports, two USB 2.0 ports, a micro USB port for serial console, and a JTAG header for further debugging, as well as a 40-pin GPIO header for expansion.
- SoM – ARIES Embedded MSRZFive-A0A system-on-module
- SoC – Renesas RZ/Five R9A07G043F01GBG single-core RISC-V AX45MP processor @ to 1.0 GHz
- System Memory – 512MB DDR4 RAM
- Storage – 128Mbit SPI NOR flash
- 332 contacts as per OSM Size-S specifications
- Storage – MicroSD card slot
- Networking – 2x Gigabit Ethernet ports
- USB – 1x USB 2.0 host port, 1x micro USB 2.0 OTG port
- Expansion – 40-pin GPIO header with 2x I2C, 2x CAN bus, dual A/D converter modules
- Debugging – Micro USB port for serial console (via CP2102N), 10-pin JTAG header
- Power Supply – 5V via USB Type-C port
- Dimensions – 85 x 56mm
- Temperature Range – -25°…+85°C
ARIES Embedded will provide a Yocto Linux BSP for the board and says it’s well-suited for entry-class social infrastructure gateway control and industrial gateway control. The company highlights the system-on-module offers a parallel LCD interface, a MIPI CSI camera input, and two CAN-FD interfaces, but their description of the 40-pin GPIO header is as clear as mud with two I2C and “GPIOs”, so I’m not sure whether all those can be accessed on the GPIO header, or only a subset as listed in the specifications.
One of the reasons for the limited level of detail is that the FIVEberry RISC-V SBC will only be available in Q3 2023 at a yet-to-be-determined price. [Update: it is listed for 119.00 Euros ex VAT and shipping on the company’s store, see comments section]. More details may be found on the product page.
