Renesas Synergy™Platform Supported by Growing Network of Independent Design Houses (IDH) Across Europe

15 Feb 2016

Düsseldorf, February 15, 2016 – Renesas Electronics Europe, a premier supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, today announced that a European-wide network of Independent Design Houses (IDH) is ready to support the Renesas Synergy™ Platform. So far, the network comprises 13 IDH covering many European regions in local languages. Their highly professional capabilities range from special skills such as functional safety or graphical user interface designs all the way up to complete turn-key product developments, even including stylish exterior design and manufacturing. The services also include various tests and certifications.


“Increasing system complexity is the driving force behind the trend to outsource designs to IDH,” says Mohammed Dogar, Senior Manager MCU/MPU Solution Marketing, Industrial & Communications Business Unit, Renesas Electronics Europe. “The Renesas Synergy Platform is ideally suited to develop these complex systems much faster than ever before. We believe in teamwork between our customers, our IDH network and Renesas as the key to success.”


Design services from the Renesas IDH partner network are often used where R&D resources are fully utilised; where special skills are required; or where a company without its own electronics R&D needs to get an electronic product designed for their otherwise non-electronic portfolio. Also, a “buy is better than make” approach can sometimes be more efficient, even for entire system designs.


The IDH already enrolled in the Renesas Synergy Platform IDH network include (in alphabetical order):



All of these IDH are ready to support customers now. They have been trained on and equipped with the Renesas Synergy Platform and its associated tools, software and microcontrollers and have direct access to Renesas’ Synergy experts. The network is set to grow further during 2016.
