Renesas new Online Market Place for R-Car Automotive System-On-Chips (SoCs)

Renesas Shifts Mobility System Development Into High Gear With Its New Online Market Place for R-Car SoC

Offers Developers Quick Access to Evaluation Software and Documentation to Jump Start Evaluation and Speed Time to Market

Renesas Electronics Corporation announces the launch of its online Market Place for R-Car Automotive System-On-Chips (SoCs) which offers a one-stop source of solutions that help accelerate technical innovation for the future mobility market.

Developers can download various solutions designed for Renesas’ R-Car automotive system-on-chips (SoCs) directly from the Market Place. Developers can also use the Market Place as a portal to obtain reference evaluation software from R-Car Consortium Proactive Partners or contact Proactive Partner companies directly, allowing for timely support to match customer requirements.

Through the Market Place, developers can quickly and easily access R-Car evaluation software, documentation such as hardware manuals, technical updates, application notes, and basic software such as Linux and Android board support packages (BSPs). Designed to boost the efficiency of mobility system development, the Market Place will contribute to reducing the time required for development and jump start evaluation projects using R-Car Starter Kits. Previously, to obtain these assets, developers had to sign a written software evaluation license agreement a time-consuming process. With the new Market Place, after creating an account, developers can obtain the necessary software and related materials immediately by applying for a click-through license. The Market Place also offers user-friendly technical videos that provide additional details on the usage and features of R-Car products.

“In today’s shifting business landscape, customers are requiring quick access to the solutions and related information to undertake development under the new normal,” said Naoki Yoshida, Vice President of Automotive Digital Product Marketing Division at Renesas. “The launch of our Market Place allows developers to instantly download solutions they need including evaluation software from partner companies, which will substantially speed up mobility development for customers.”
