RENESAS SYNERGY - A complete and qualified platform that accelerates embedded development, inspiring innovation and enabling differentiation.

To bring complex system designs to market fast, there is only one solution: A comprehensive, integrated platform.

The problem is most solutions aren't truly complete, fully qualified or supported. And they don't necessarily let you bypass tedious infrastructure coding. Fortunately, all that just changed.

The IoT is set to revolutionize the embedded market. To help engineers develop the products that will drive the IoT, Renesas, the global leader in embedded microcontrollers, has created the Renesas Synergy™ Platform, a complete and qualified platform that accelerates embedded development, inspiring innovation and enabling differentiation.

What Can Synergy Do For You?

To be successful in IoT, embedded engineers need to overcome three obstacles:

  1. Time to Market – how long it takes a project to be developed
  2. Cost of Ownership – total expense to develop and maintain a product over a lifetime
  3. Barriers to Entry – obstacles in way of getting started and of immediate productivity

The Renesas Synergy Platform was designed to address each of these problems in unique ways and with one goal in mind – accelerate design and development of IoT and embedded systems by reducing time spent on underlying system software so developers can focus instead on creating truly innovative and differentiated IoT products.

Renesas Synergy Platform Elements

The major components of a connected embedded system platform are:

Traditional Embedded Systems Platform

  • Efficient MCU devices
  • A complete software framework
  • Additional features enabled through add-on software
  • A robust, common software API
  • Intuitive tools
  • A collection of kits that can intuitively aid development
  • Integrated and secure cloud connectivity

All of this adds up to a foundation that allows your development resources to focus on application code.

What if the RTOS, middleware, communication stacks, user interface, and detailed MCU functions could be accessed entirely through the API?

  • Engineering resources could immediately start developing end-product application code.
  • The learning curve for software and MCU device operation below the API would virtually be eliminated.
  • Precious resources could focus on innovation and differentiation in the marketplace.

Renesas Synergy is that platform.

The Renesas Synergy Platform Synergy is Composed of Five Key Elements:

  • Professional Software
  • Scalable Microcontrollers
  • Easy to use Tools & Kits
  • Solutions
  • Cloud Connectivity

With access by a consistent API
