Synopsys, Inc has announced a collaboration with Renesas Electronics Corporation to develop and deploy software development solutions optimized for designs based on Renesas microcontrollers (MCUs).
Synopsys, Inc is a leader in software and IP used in the design, verification, and manufacture of electronic components and systems. Renesas Electronics Corporation is a provider of advanced semiconductor solutions.
The collaboration includes the establishment of a Virtual MCU Center of Excellence with a dedicated team of engineers from both companies that will develop, among other commercial products, system-level models, and Virtualizer Development Kits (VDKs) to accelerate software development and system testing for Renesas RH850-based designs.
VDKs are software development tools integrating functional models of digital hardware, providing full visibility and controllability of single and multicore systems for software debug and analysis capabilities.
Renesas’ 32-bit RH850 MCU family is architected to support single- and multicore configurations that meet the processing requirements of a wide variety of automotive applications such as safety, body and engine control, driver interfaces and infotainment.
