Future Electronics Introduces the Synergy™ Platform for Embedded IoT from Renesas

Montreal, Canada – May 3, 2018 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, is pleased to announce the availability of the Synergy™ Platform and GUIX Studio™ from Renesas.

The IoT is set to revolutionize the embedded market, and to bring complex system designs to market fast, there is only one solution: A comprehensive, integrated platform. Renesas has created the Renesas Synergy™ Platform ― a complete and qualified platform that accelerates embedded development, inspires innovation and enables differentiation, to help companies develop products and services that will drive embedded IoT.

Future Electronics customers will now be able to use the first fully qualified embedded microcontroller software and hardware platform to reach more people sooner. Renesas has achieved a revolutionary new level of abstraction in the design process, enabling the designer to start development at the Application Programming Interface (API), thus reducing time to market, lowering total cost of ownership and removing barriers to entry.

What makes Synergy Platform unique is that it is warranted, maintained and supported by Renesas. It is also a designer’s dream because it makes their life very easy, enabling them to develop from the API and having the benefit of a single trustworthy point of support.

Purchasers are not forgotten either, as development can start without any up-front cost, plus the assurance of competitive device pricing when production starts. Just go to the Synergy Gallery, download the Synergy Software Package (SSP) and the tool chain, and start development immediately.

The key parts of the platform have been optimized to work together, creating new blocks where necessary but also reusing proven IP where it is already cutting edge. For the developer, this ensures that everything works together without a glitch and that software development can start directly without having to worry about underlying layers, initialization of peripherals or setup of the Real-Time Operating System (RTOS). This relieves developers from the burden of taking care about these basic tasks and helps reduce time to market.

The Synergy™ Platform from Renesas is available now from Future Electronics. For more information and to watch a video about this product, click here. To see the entire portfolio of Renesas products available through Future Electronics, visit: www.FutureElectronics.com
