Software and tools are included in the Synergy Platform with no fees or royalties. The Synergy Software Package (SSP) integrates all the functionality needed to build IoT applications including Express Logic’s ThreadX RTOS and X-ware middleware, application frameworks, functional libraries, HAL drivers, and board support packages for the Synergy kits. When developing application code using the SSP, developers can choose their preferred development environment as both Renesas e2studio and IAR Embedded Workbench® for Renesas Synergy™ are supported.
Synergy Software Package (SSP)
Commercial software worth over $100K which is available to developers using the Synergy Platform for no charge and with unlimited production license rights. The production-ready SSP is fully tested, maintained, and supported by Renesas.
Both Renesas e2studio and IAR Embedded Workbench® for Renesas Synergy™ are available to use with the Synergy Platform with no license or maintenance fee and with no restriction on code size or number of users. The Renesas eclipse based e2studio Integrated Solution Development Environment (ISDE) is supported by both the GNU and IAR compilers and offers automatic code generation. IAR Embedded Workbench® for Renesas Synergy™ integrated development environment is also available enabling generation of fast performing, highly compact code. Additionally, there are advanced utilities available for no charge including TraceX® to visually monitor run-time performance, GUIX Studio™ to enable drag-and-drop design of graphical user interfaces (GUI), and the Synergy Standalone Configurator (SSC) for intuitive configuration of microcontroller functions, software assignments, and operation modes.
Synergy Software Add-ons
Additional software which is SSP-compatible. Renesas offers various SSP supplemental add-ons, application projects, and module guides which provide reference and example code which developers can leverage for no charge. Additionality, Renesas works with third-party software providers to make SSP-compatible evaluation example projects using the third-party software available for no charge. Commercial versions of the third-party software are sold and supported by the third-party.
