The Renesas Synergy™ microcontroller (MCU) family is designed for end applications ranging from connected mobile devices for the IoT market to high-performance embedded systems controllers. With a range of performance, features and pin-compatibility within each series, Synergy MCUs deliver the scalability, power consumption, code-reusability, and performance needs for the embedded market.

The revolutionary Synergy Platform will change the life of embedded design engineers for the better thanks to enabling the start of development at the Application Programming Interface (API) layer, allowing creativity to be focused on the differentiation of individual applications and resulting in reduced time to market, lower cost of ownership and the removal of barriers to entry.

Additionally, Renesas offers the Product Longevity Program (PLP) to help customers select the most appropriate part for applications that require long life cycles.
