Embedded World: Mouser, Renesas ink global pact
Mouser Electronics has signed a new global distribution partnership with Renesas Electronics which will initially focus on the latest software, development kits, and microcontrollers (MCUs) that comprise the groundbreaking Renesas Synergy Platform before expanding to other Reneasas products.
The Synergy Platform is designed to remove obstacles for design engineers and speed time to market for Internet of Things and (IoT), industrial, and real-time operating system-based applications.
“The platform has been developed to help designers meet new challenges, and that’s why we have signed with Mouser ” said Andy Harding Director Core Marketing for the Renesas Industrial & Communications Business Group. “We found engineers top concerns included debugging process, applications performance, power management and meeting product deadlines.
The Synergy Platform provides developers with immediate access to a complete embedded platform, starting with an application programming interface (API) to leverage a full software framework that is built around the best-in-class Express Logic X-Ware.
This software framework, the Synergy Software Package (SSP), relieves developers from creating and maintaining low-level software repeatedly for each of their embedded projects. The platform also integrates a wide range of scalable ARM Cortex-M based MCUs fully accessible through the software APIs, powerful features of the industry-leading development toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench with intuitive configuration assistance, and hardware kits for development and solutions.
Since everything has been pre-integrated, tested, and maintained by Renesas, developers can save months of work and extensive investment, freeing them to focus on innovation and differentiation of their end-products.
The Synergy MCU family at Mouser includes four different series of software-, architecture-, and pin-compatible devices. The series are tiered, starting at the high-performance S7 Series with devices operating at 240MHz, followed by the high-integration S5 Series operating at 120MHz, the high-efficiency S3 Series at 48MHz, and the ultra-low-power S1 Series at 32MHz.
These devices implement easy connectivity, rock-sold security, and dependable safety, and facilitate the creation of easy-to-use human-machine interfaces (HMI).
Mouser offers a selection of intuitive Synergy Kits based on S7G2 Group MCUs to simplify embedded software development.
