Synergy Kits and Solutions
Synergy Starter Kit SK-S7G2
Renesas' SK-S7G2 Starter Kit is an extremely low-cost way to access the entire Synergy Platform enabling full development using the vast majority of all Synergy Software Package (SSP) functions. High-speed connectivity over Ethernet, USB-HS host and USB-FS device, CAN, plus wireless connectivity to mobile Internet devices via BLE 4.0 can be exercised and tailored to the user's needs.
Synergy Development Kit DK-S3A7
Renesas' DK-S3A7 development kit is host to a Synergy S3 Series MCU from the S3A7 group, a super-efficient MCU because of its ARM® Cortex®-M4 CPU core with FPU running at moderate speed on an ultra-low power silicon process. The DK-S3A7 kit is engineered to allow users to harness and measure this efficiency while developing software for their end product using the Synergy Platform.
Synergy Development Kit DK-S7G2
Renesas' DK-S7G2 development kit provides a complete basis for hardware and software development using the Synergy Platform. The kit is host to a Synergy S7 series MCU from the S7G2 group, today’s flagship Synergy MCU device. The DK-S7G2 kit was designed from the beginning with ease of use in mind having automated blocks of signal routing on-board including a quick check through LEDs if routing is correct for the desired macro functions, providing error-proof configuration.
Synergy Product Example PE-HMI1
Renesas' PE-HMI1 Product Example offers a unique perspective into a “design instance” of a particular end product, in this case a connected human machine interface, closely representing how the actual end product would be designed using the Synergy Platform. As a time saver, portions of this PE design can be re-used in actual end products, or the entire PE design can be leveraged by using the documented design journey, which is included to describe the decision process made by the original PE designers, to modify the PE design to meet particular needs.
Synergy Development Kit DK-S124
Renesas' DK-S124 Development Kit is host to the Synergy S1 Series S124 MCU, which was architected from the ground up to be ultra-low power with a smart mix of analog and digital peripherals. The DK-S124 is a perfect hardware platform that lets you access all pins and features of the MCU, including the analog features of the S124 MCU and the ability to measure the MCU current consumption in all modes of operation. Additionally, DK-S124 offers broad expansion capabilities, including a Bluetooth® Low Energy radio that enables communication with to mobile devices.
