Renesas – Introducing the Renesas Synergy™ Platform

Announcing the next wave in embedded development

Renesas Synergy is a comprehensive platform that integrates a real-time operating system, middleware and other software with a family of highly scalable microcontrollers, as well as  development tools, designed to improve productivity. This tight coupling, along with a wide range of application and product examples, allows you to focus on innovation and deliver differentiated products faster than ever before.

Elements of Renesas Synergy have been designed to provide unprecedented compatibility and scalability. Well-designed software APIs make software development at an application level a reality. Systematic testing, qualification, maintenance and support that follow well-defined software lifecycle management principles reduce risk for software developers.

With the out-of-box integration of software and hardware, the Renesas Synergy Platform now allows you to improve your time to market, eliminate barriers to entry brought on by the risks of new technologies and upfront costs, and lower your total cost of ownership with bundled, maintained and verified baseline resources.

The Renesas Synergy Platform will continue to evolve over time, bringing new technologies and features that maintain compatibility so you can keep your products on the cutting edge. To catch the next wave and learn more, please click here

Renesas Synergy Software Package (SSP)
At the heart of Renesas Synergy™ Software is the Synergy Software Package (SSP) that integrates Express Logic ThreadX® RTOS, plus stacks, libraries and utilities, including NetX Duo™, USBX™, GUIX™, and FileX®, with a rich application framework and drivers – all optimized specifically for the Renesas Synergy™ MCU architecture.
