Renesas Electronics Singapore - a wholly-owned subsidiary of Renesas Electronics Corporation - has launched its Synergy Platform for Internet of Things (IoT) projects in Asia Pacific (APAC).
The company has also partnered 16 Independent Design Houses (IDHs) to support the Synergy Platform and help system designers drive innovation in their products.
"With increasing system complexity in IoT development, we're seeing growing demands for outsourcing designs to specialists," said Ronnie Ho, Director of Marketing for General Purpose Products at Renesas Electronics Singapore, in a press release.
"By partnering recognised IDHs as Renesas' Alliance partners, customers can focus on the innovative and differentiated aspects of their products and build these complex systems much faster than ever before," Ho continued.
Renesas Electronics Singapore said the Synergy Platform consists of fully integrated software, microcontrollers (MCUs), and unified development tools.
At its core is the Synergy Software Package (SSP), which includes real-time operating systems (RTOS), extensive middleware, and communications which can be accessed through Application Programming Interface (API). Essentially, the platform enables embedded system engineers to start their MCU software development from the API.
"By enabling developers to start at the software API level and enjoy a connected real-time system without the need to build and maintain baseline functionality, the Synergy Platform empowers our customers to drive innovation and differentiation in their own end-products to succeed in a very competitive market," Ho explained.
In addition, users of Synergy Platform can now have the choice to use either of two professional software development environments: the IAR Embedded Work or e2studio.
The Renesas Synergy Platform can be accessed through Synergy Gallery website and only require a simple click-through licensing for immediate download of professional software and development tools at no fees or royalties.
In October this year, the Synergy Platform will be extended to Mainland China/Hong Kong, and Taiwan region.
