MistySOM for Low Power Embedded Compute Applications
During the recent global chip shortage, MistyWest was experiencing challenges sourcing appropriate solutions for our clients to scale their products. Renesas Electronics was still providing supply chain reliability with reasonable lead-times thanks to their multi-fab facilities. MistyWest partnered with Renesas to develop our first internal product called the ‘MistySOM’ built around the Renesas RZ/G2L and RZ/V2L MPUs. MistySOM enables efficient and flexible development of edge compute applications ranging from human-machine interface (HMI) solutions to computer vision. Additionally, the MistyCarrier board effectively turns MistySOM into an SBC for rapid development and low-volume products (~ <100). Initial pre-orders of MistySOM and MistyCarrier were through a campaign on GroupGets in early 2023, with initial alpha results to come soon.
