Basics of the Renesas Synergy™ Platform


Basics of the Renesas Synergy™ Platform

The revolutionary Synergy Platform promises to change the life of embedded design engineers for the better thanks to enabling you to start development at the API (Application Programming Interface) layer and focus your creativity on differentiation of your own application.  As a result, you will reduce your time to market, lower cost of ownership and remove barriers to entry.


Getting started is now even easier with the publication of “Basics of the Renesas Synergy™ Platform”.  Based around the S5D9 promotion kit, the book introduces the concept of Synergy Platform before taking you through all the necessary steps to reach your first application implementation.  Heavily indexed, it can also serve as a usual reference guide for those already familiar with the platform.
