Overview

Creating a secure product requires a full set of security solutions. Renesas will guide you through the design and implementation of a secure, connected application, from basic security concepts, to advanced topics such as key handling and cloud connectivity, and finally mass production and secure firmware updates. All items will be demonstrated using Renesas MCU products with their powerful security feature sets.

Security Solutions

Renesas Synergy™ Microcontrollers

The Renesas Synergy MCUs, forming the basis of the Synergy Platform, provide hardware security features previously available only in dedicated Secure Element chips that were developed for specialized, highly secure identity applications (e.g. SIM cards, VPN tokens, etc.) The MCU's high level of integration eliminates the need for another chip, a socket, and a communications bus (I2C bus). This reduces the size, complexity, power consumption, and cost of the circuit board.
