Renesas Synergy™ Platform – Find out how starting your development at the API can speed time to market


Renesas Synergy™ is a comprehensive qualified and supported platform that integrates a feature rich software suite, a scalable family of ARM Cortex®-M series MCUs and a complete integrated solution development environment.

What's really cool about Renesas Synergy™ is that it enables you to start your development at the API. This means speeding your time to market, reducing total cost of ownership and removing many barriers to entry.



ThreadX RTOS, middleware, communication stacks, user interface, and detailed MCU functions can be accessed entirely through the API. So you can concentrate on what makes the difference in your application: Innovation!

The Renesas Synergy™ Platform consists of 5 key elements: 

  • Qualified commercial-grade software with a common API
  • Scalable and compatible MCUs
  • Intuitive professional Development Kits (DK) and Starter Kits (SK)
  • Qualified, maintained and supported by Renesas
  • Click-through licensing plus a collection of specialized add-on software  

Renesas Synergy™ Starter Kits (SK)

To get started and simply explore the Renesas Synergy™ platform, I recommend the S7G2 Starter Kit. It provides an extremely low-cost way to access the entire Renesas Synergy Platform and make full use of the Synergy Software Package (SSP) and the four ARM Cortex®-M series MCUs. The Starter Kit provides also function expansion via sets of connectors based on the Pmod™ standard and on the Arduino™ format for Arduino™ Shield plug-in boards. 

Renesas Synergy™ Development Kits (DK)

Development Kits are available for every series of Renesas Synergy™ microcontrollers (MCUs). Development Kits enable full access to all of the MCU features and pins for evaluating MCU device performance, measuring power consumption, for building application software until the end-product’s prototype hardware development platform is available, and even to expand capabilities by plugging in specialized circuit boards into DK expansion connectors including industry standard Pmod™ connectors. All Development Kits have an on-board J-Link debugger as well as a Bluetooth Low Energy radio for wireless connection to a mobile device.

Renesas Synergy™ is an outstanding platform for large and small customers alike.
