Renesas Synergy™ Platform Revs Up Ecosystem Growth Engine

Partners Expand Synergy Gallery Solutions with Enhanced Security and Wireless Connectivity Software Add-ons

25 Oct 2017

TOKYO, Japan, October 25, 2017 ― Renesas Electronics Corporation (TSE:6723), a premier supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, today announced the rapid expansion of its partner ecosystem with new third-party software tightly integrated into the Renesas Synergy™ Platform. Developers can access these and other third-party Verified Software Add-ons (VSAs) and validated Partner Projects on the Synergy Gallery website. The site includes solutions for security technology, communication protocols, wireless drivers for cloud connectivity, development tools, and more. This content helps developers solve real application challenges, and cost effectively speed their Internet of Things (IoT) products to market.

 

The Synergy Gallery hosts VSA and Partner Project software components with a unique and simple business model. Developers can browse, select, and download third-party software with no upfront fees, using simple click-through licensing. Renesas pre-tests and verifies third-party VSA software to ensure interoperability with Synergy software, while each partner tests and substantiates their Partner Project software to meet Renesas Synergy software compatibility requirements. The Synergy Gallery provides evaluation versions of commercially licensed third-party software, and developers can acquire the license directly from the third party.

 

“The IoT is enabled by many forms of connectivity and complex layered security, but developers should not be burdened with the implementation details. Since Synergy is a platform, it can accommodate partner solutions to meet specific customer needs,” said Peter Carbone, Vice President of Synergy Platform Business Division, Renesas Electronics Corporation. “Every customer has different security and connectivity requirements, which is why we view our third-party partners as the accelerant that’s making the IoT explode.”

About The Synergy Platform

The Synergy Platform provides developers with immediate access to a complete embedded platform starting with an Application Programming Interface (API) to leverage a full software framework built around the best-in-class Express Logic X-Ware™. This software framework is qualified, maintained, supported, and warranted by Renesas to relieve developers from repeatedly creating and maintaining low-level software on each of their embedded projects. This saves customers months of work and extensive investment. The platform also integrates a wide range of scalable Arm® Cortex®-M based MCUs fully accessible through the software APIs, as well as IAR Embedded Workbench® development toolchain with intuitive configuration assistance, and hardware development kits.
