Renesas unveils Synergy website and solutions gallery for IoT developers

Renesas Electronics announced the newly updated Renesas Synergy Platform website and Solutions Gallery that place the power of the Synergy ecosystem – from software to hardware – into the developers’ hands. The site refresh makes it easier for Renesas Synergy users to take advantage of the entire Synergy ecosystem including LTE cellular, Bluetooth low energy, advanced Wi-Fi connectivity, and comprehensive security solutions. In addition, users now have streamlined access to powerful application solutions such as connectivity to enterprise cloud services, human machine interface, and industrial communication protocols that enable them to move their Internet of Things designs from concept to production with confidence and scalability.

The Solutions Gallery offers reference designs and application projects that showcase the richness of the Synergy Platform. To enable easier access for users, the new site employs extensive cross referencing to automatically group relevant content to shorten time-to-market cycles for users in competitive markets.

The gallery is a hub for many solutions from Renesas and partner companies including security communications technology, communication protocols, wireless drivers for cloud connectivity, development tools, kits, services and more – all compatible with the Synergy Platform. The gallery provides developers the building blocks they need in their IoT toolboxes to solve real application challenges, and cost effectively speed their products to market. Developers can browse, select, and download Renesas and third-party software with no upfront fees, using simple click-through licensing. Renesas pre-tests and verifies third-party Verified Software Add-On (VSA) software to ensure interoperability with Synergy software, while each partner tests and substantiates their Partner Project software to meet Synergy Software compatibility requirements. The Synergy Gallery provides evaluation versions of commercially licensed third-party software, and developers can acquire the license directly from the third party.

The Synergy Platform is the first qualified, maintained and fully supported software/hardware platform that accelerates time to market, reduces total cost of ownership, and removes the obstacles engineers face designing IoT products. It is the only embedded platform qualified using a published software quality process based on international standards. By enabling development to begin at the application programming interface level, Renesas reduces the complexity with designing security-aware connected devices and HMI systems with graphical user interfaces (GUI) and capacitive touch. The Synergy Platform consists of fully integrated software, development tools and a wide range of scalable Arm Cortex-M-based Synergy MCUs fully accessible through the software APIs. There are no upfront licensing fees or back-end royalties – everything is included in the purchase price of the MCU.
