Renesas building security systems provide convenience and peace of mind through sensing, connectivity and user interface technologies. These systems utilize the Renesas Synergy™ Platform, a complete and qualified system solution for highly sophisticated embedded applications such as building automation (BA). It makes it possible to quickly deliver optimized solutions to meet constantly changing technology needs such as performance, power efficiency and design flexibility. The platform includes fully integrated software, unified development tools, a scalable family of microcontrollers (MCUs), and a broad ecosystem of partners.
The Renesas Synergy™ microcontroller family uses the Arm® Cortex®-M core, and is designed to be scalable across the series, allowing code to be reused. In addition, along with easy to implement connectivity features and a human machine interface, it has robust security and safety features, as well as a wide range of peripheral functions that can be adapted to a variety of embedded systems. The Synergy MCUs offer interface solutions such as graphic and segment LCD controllers and capacitive touch sensing; connectivity solutions such as a Wi-Fi framework, BACnet stack VSA and Renesas' RL78/G1D Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE) chipset; and sensing solutions such as a temperature sensor, an analog data collection framework, A/D converter, D/A converter, PGA, comparator, and a digital sensor interface.
- Synergy S7 or S5 Series MCU acts as the primary controller for the hub (main controller)
- Synergy S3 or S1 Series MCU acts as the controller for the nodes
- Connectivity to the cloud via Ethernet or Wi-Fi
- BLE connectivity between nodes and the hub
