Training programme for users of Renesas' Synergy platform

April 13, 2016 // By Graham Prophet
Renesas Electronics Europe and MicroConsult GmbH are to collaborate on the provision of customer training courses for the Renesas Synergy micrcontroller platform. .

Renesas Synergy is a complete and qualified platform with fully integrated software, a scalable family of microcontrollers (MCUs), and unified development tools to speed embedded system developers' time to market for IoT device applications. At the heart of the Synergy Platform is the Synergy Software Package (SSP) which is qualified, supported, warranted and maintained by Renesas. The SSP comprises a real-time operating system (RTOS), middleware, communication stacks, application frameworks, graphics and security libraries, hardware abstraction layer drivers and more - all accessible through an application programming interface (API) to customers from struggling with lower level details. Developers can start software development immediately at the API level, so they can focus on differentiating their own product in the marketplace instead of doing repetitive, non-differentiating work. Accordingly, Renesas and MicroConsult recognise the need to ensure that developers master the new techniques they will need to get the best out of all the elements of the Synergy Platform, and especially the extensive SSP.


MicroConsult will be offering off-the-shelf three-day training courses, as well as customised training on request. With at least 50% of the time spent hands-on, the standard training course will focus on building a quick understanding of the complete Synergy Platform as well as progressing into more depth on such topics as the RTOS, networking and USB communication stacks, creation of graphics and libraries, and taking advantage of application frameworks. By the end of the three-day course, participants will be able to fully utilise all the elements of the Synergy Platform and be fully prepared to develop their own application on the Synergy Starter Kit, SK-S7G2, which all attendees will receive upon completion.


Synergy Platform training courses will run every two months initially, starting in May 2016. More details area at;
