Why a platform?

Accelerate Development

Because your MCU software development can begin immediately at the API level, you don’t have to spend your precious time doing repetitive non-differentiating work at the lower levels. Instead, focus on innovating and differentiating your own end-product above the API. All support comes from one vendor — Renesas. No finger-pointing, no wasting time.

Reduce Time

Reduce Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)

Creating and maintaining professional-grade microcontroller software at lower levels is very expensive over the lifetime of a product — especially when RTOS, networked communications, graphics, or specialty functions are required. These are included in the Synergy Platform, and the list continues to grow with your needs — all qualified and maintained by Renesas.

Lower Cost

Lower Barriers to Entry

There’s nothing to hold you back. Be agile. Test new market opportunities. There are virtually no up-front costs for full use of Synergy Software or Synergy Tools — it’s included in the price of any Synergy Microcontroller. No fees, no royalties. One-click licensing means downloads in minutes.
