Renesas Electronics, a premier supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, has announced the latest update of the Synergy Platform. It’s the first qualified, maintained, and fully supported software/hardware platform that removes the obstacles usually faced by engineers while designing IoT products. The platform also accelerates time to market and reduces the cost of ownership. It contains fully integrated software, development tools, and a family of Scalable microcontrollers (MCUs) devoid of any upfront fees or back-end royalties.
The new release of the platform includes the Synergy Software Package (SSP) version 1.3.0, which integrates Express Logic’s NetX Secure Transport Layer Security (TLS) and Message Queue Telemetry Transport (MQTT) for NetX Duo. The software package also features Wi-Fi, LTE cellular and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) wireless application frameworks that facilitate the addition or exchange of radio frequency (RF) modules in IoT devices.

Besides, it includes software and development tool support for three additional MCU groups namely S5D5, S3A6, and S128. The NetX Secure is easy to deploy, prevents data tampering, and authenticates the senders/receivers identity. Furthermore, the TLS protocol provides security by establishing secret keys between the client and the server while the MQTT enables lightweight machine-to-machine (M2M) communication across small IoT edge devices.
The Synergy S5D5 MCU Group is available now from Renesas Electronics’ worldwide distributors, along with a low-cost TB-S5D5 Target Board Kit that enables customers to evaluate and quickly start their design. A new TB-S3A6 Target Board Kit for the S3A6 MCU Group and DK-S128 Development Kit for the S128 MCU Group are also available from Renesas Electronics’ worldwide distributors.
