Start Developing with the Renesas Synergy™ Platform
Start ahead. Begin your embedded MCU system and IoT device designs at the software API layer and leave the details to us.
Explore the Renesas Synergy Platform
Renesas is the first major MCU supplier to provide a bundled, commercially-available, and qualified software package that is specifically developed and optimized for a family of scalable MCUs.
A wide range of scalable and compatible Arm® Cortex®-M based microcontrollers to cover your needs.
Power of the PlatformThe Renesas Synergy Platform is a complete and qualified platform that accelerates embedded development, inspiring innovation and enabling differentiation.
- Fully integrated software tested to commercial standards
- Scalable family of microcontrollers
- Unified development tools and kits
- Look just one place for support — Renesas
Why Use the Synergy Platform?
To give you back time and resources, so you can do what you do best — innovate and differentiate.
Easier development leads to faster time to market.
- Start at the API layer
- Work efficiently
- One stop for business
Because your microcontroller software development can begin immediately at the API level, you don’t have to spend your precious time doing repetitive non-differentiating work at the lower levels. Instead, focus on innovating and differentiating your own end-product above the API. All support comes from one vendor — Renesas. No finger-pointing, no wasting time.
Finding the bottom line ― it's not always just in the numbers.
- Save smart
- Minimize risk
- Stay on the leading edge
Creating and maintaining professional-grade microcontroller software at lower levels is very expensive over the lifetime of a product — especially when RTOS, networked communications, graphics, or specialty functions are required. These are included in SSP and the list continues to grow with your needs — all maintained and warranted by Renesas.
Getting started can be a daunting task.
- Develop without restrictions
- Get inspired to innovate
- Simplify development
There’s nothing to hold you back. Be agile. Test new market opportunities. There are virtually no up-front costs for full use of Synergy Software or Synergy Tools — it’s included in the price of any Synergy Microcontroller. No fees, no royalties. One-click licensing means downloads in minutes.
Fully integrated, tested, qualified, documented, and maintained. How much time can you save?
At the heart of Synergy Platform is the Synergy Software Package (SSP) that is qualified, supported, and maintained by Renesas. SSP is warranted by Renesas to operate per SSP datasheet specifications.

Extend the capability of the SSP with specialized add-on functions that have already been integrated and proven to work with the SSP – so you don’t have to.
Verified Software Add-On (VSA) modules from 3rd party VSA member companies, verified by Renesas to operate with the SSP.
Partner Projects Software from 3rd party companies, verified by the 3rd party per Renesas specifications to operate with the SSP.
To ensure production readiness, Renesas developed the SSP according to the software life cycle process based on the international standard ISO/IEC/IEEE 12207 – the same one used by NASA.
One example — under the Continuous Integration process, once a day Renesas executes more than 8000 test cases on the SSP. The result is verifiable software quality based on quantified metrics.
