Synergy Software Package

Synergy Software Package



Tightly integrated, optimized, and qualified suite of software with a commercial RTOS that scales with end-product complexity and simplifies complex system-level services.

Key Features
  • Application framework for abstraction and code re-use
  • ThreadX®, a proven commercial RTOS
  • X-Ware™, NetX Duo™, NetX Secure™, USBX™, GUIX™, FileX®
  • Flexible layered architecture
  • Developed under the IEC/ISO-12207 Software Life Cycle process
  • Qualified to operate as specified by the SSP datasheet
  • Robust common API across Synergy MCUs


SSP components are tightly integrated, optimized, tested, documented, and maintained by Renesas. A layered architecture enables developers to write their application with the Application Framework using common APIs, or by directly connecting to the device driver level as needed.

Renesas has established a Software Quality Assurance (SQA) process for the SSP to cover the entire Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC), from early market requirements validation to software verification and maintenance. Every element of the SSP is defined by and tested to meet these requirements.


SSP quality is tracked and measured using combinations of unit, functional, integration, performance, regression, dynamic, and static analysis tests. To ensure the Synergy SQA process is verifiable and produces quantifiable results, five software quality metric categories must be met for a SSP release:


·  Meet coding standards

·  Maintain low code complexity

·  Have traceability to requirements

·  Build cleanly

·  Achieve full test coverage of all code



Three types of SSP licenses are available with a valid user or company account.


Portions of SSP code are protected under certain license types, meaning that while fully functional, protected code sections cannot be edited and sometimes cannot be viewed. The remainder of SSP code is always viewable and editable.  


An Evaluation License with any valid account provides complementary use of the SSP and Synergy Tools, but protected sections cannot be viewed or edited.


A Development/Production License with a valid company account adds complimentary SSP maintenance and visibility to all SSP software, including protected sections if using a Synergy development tool. Protected sections cannot be edited. This license is required for development and production of any Synergy Platform based end-product.


A Source Code License is only required in the rare case that protected sections of the SSP need to be edited. Protected source code editing is not recommended and not needed for end-product development. Please contact your local Renesas sales representative to inquire about a SSP Source Code License.
