For embedded developers who are interested to save weeks or even months to create a secure end-to-end Internet of Things (IoT) application, Renesas has launched the new ‘Synergy Enterprise Cloud Toolbox’ solution. The product helps developers to connect their products to any of three major enterprise cloud service providers (Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, or Microsoft Azure) in under 10 minutes. Applications include monitoring and controlling the surrounding environment in home, building, or industrial automation systems.
The new Renesas Synergy Enterprise Cloud Toolbox v1.1 and AE-CLOUD1 kit provide a reference design that enables Synergy users to easily connect their applications to enterprise cloud vendors and evaluate wireless connectivity with no cumbersome licensing fees.
At no cost, developers can make this connection using a Renesas-hosted cloud account. They also can choose to integrate the connection with an existing cloud account. The Synergy Enterprise Cloud Toolbox enables users to visualize their sensor data on a private dashboard streaming live to the cloud from Synergy MCU-based hardware over Wi-Fi or a cellular connection.
The Enterprise Cloud Toolbox software, unlike competitive cloud kits, can be cut and paste into real projects, enabling code reuse to accelerate product development, according to Renesas.
“The Renesas Synergy Platform has simplified the daunting task of creating an end-to-end IoT application by lowering the barriers to entry and reducing the total cost of ownership,” said Peter Carbone, Vice President, Synergy Platform Business Division, Renesas Electronics Corporation. “Our new Enterprise Cloud Toolbox and AE-CLOUD1 kit enables Synergy users to easily connect their applications to enterprise cloud vendors and evaluate wireless connectivity with no cumbersome licensing fees.”
The Enterprise Cloud Toolbox v1.1 is available now (no charge) at www.renesas.com/cloudtoolbox. The AE-CLOUD1 Kit is available now from Renesas Electronics’ worldwide distributors with a recommended resale price of USD $149.00.
