💡 Introduction

This is the starting page for Embedded Linux on the Renesas RZ/G family of embedded SoCs. The main goal is to make the information about RZ/G SoCs friendly, easy to access for embedded developers and enthusiasts. It does not aim to replace official Renesas support.

The links below can be used to get familiar with Renesas RZ/G SoC

Detailed information regarding RZ/G SoCs (including roadmap, technical and marketing documents, BSPs and middleware) can be obtained directly from a Renesas representative.

⚠️ Warning

The information on these RZ/G pages were moved to a new site https://renesas.info . Information on this page will no longer be updated.
