Hands-on workshops for engineers

Hands-on workshops for engineers
Engineers can now get hand-son with the Renesas Synergy Platform in a series of one-day workshops, the company has announced. Workshop participants will spend a couple of hours understanding the platform, see a demonstration of how quickly they can programme at the API, as well as completing their own project in one of the focus topics. At the end of the workshop engineers will take away their own Renesas Synergy S7 Starter Kit and Synergy ‘The Basics’ book, as well as all the demonstration and project files they have worked on during the day.
