Improve your Total Cost of Ownership when Developing IoT Applications

Download our guide to learn how you can more efficiently manage your design cycle

Today’s embedded system developments are far more complex than they were 10 years ago, increasing such challenges as shrinking product lifecycles and time-to-market windows. By simplifying the management of key software components and tools, you can reduce your total cost of ownership (TCO) and increase the opportunity to succeed.

Complete and Qualified Platform

The Renesas Synergy Platform is a new, easy-to-use, qualified platform designed to accelerate time to market, reduce total cost of ownership and remove many of the obstacles engineers face as they develop embedded products. With this new platform, product development can start at the API level, providing more time to design innovative and differentiated features for IoT devices. The Renesas Synergy Platform integrates qualified software with a new family of MCUs and an ecosystem of tools and support options into one scalable and secure platform.

Time to Market
  • Develop Apps Earlier
  • Work Efficiently
  • Business in One Stop
Cost of Ownership
  • Save Smart
  • Minimize Risk
  • Stay on Cutting Edge
Barriers to entry
  • Develop at No Cost
  • Accelerate Development
  • Start & Expand with Kits

Design engineers face many challenges acquiring and mastering new technologies, developing code for low-level system infrastructure, performing integration and test, and meeting aggressive schedules—all while facing intense cost and resource pressures. A solid embedded software platform is the answer to these challenges by freeing resources to develop differentiated products instead of creating and maintaining the fundamental, yet essential, system structure underneath.
