Renesas Synergy Platform expanded for IoT markets in Asia Pacific

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2016

Asia Pacific system developers can now experience the qualified and integrated platform to accelerate embedded development of innovative applications.

Renesas Synergy Platform is now available in South East Asia, Australia, New Zealand and India.

Renesas Synergy Platform is now available in South East Asia, Australia, New Zealand and India.

Renesas Electronics Singapore, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Renesas Electronics Corporation, has announced that the Renesas Synergy™ Platform is now available in Asia Pacific markets.

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 as they innovate new products for IoT device applications.

“In the rapidly evolving IoT industry, those who cannot get to market first with products that have differentiated value are at an immediate disadvantage. By enabling developers to start at the software API level and enjoy a connected real-time system without the need to build and maintain baseline functionality, the Synergy Platform empowers our customers to drive innovation and differentiation in their own end-products to succeed in a very competitive Market,” said Ronnie Ho, Director of General Purpose Marketing, Renesas Electronics Singapore.

At the heart of the Synergy Platform is the Synergy Software Package (SSP), which is qualified, supported, warranted, and maintained by Renesas.

The SSP consists of a real-time operating system (RTOS), extensive middleware, communications stacks, and more – all accessible through a robust Application Programming Interface (API) to free customers from struggling with lower-level details.

Developers can start MCU software development immediately at the API level so that they can focus on differentiating their own product instead of doing repetitive non-differentiating work.

Additionally, system developers can lower their total cost of ownership, and remove many obstacles that prevent them from starting new designs.

System developers in South East Asia, Australia, New Zealand and India can now access the full service of the Synergy Platform, using the Synergy Gallery website where simple click-through licensing is all that is needed for immediate download of professional software and development tools with no fees or royalties.

Infographic: Wearable technology and the Internet of Things

Monday, June 20th, 2016

Ericsson’s report on wearable technology & the IoT explores consumer views on it, how and when wearables might break beyond health and wellness scenarios and cover more diverse needs.

The wearables market is still in the early phases of expansion, and currently dominated by health, wellness and activity tracking devices – despite industry developments pointing to an increasing number of use cases.

The wearables market is still in the early phases of expansion, and currently dominated by health, wellness and activity tracking devices – despite industry developments pointing to an increasing number of use cases.

Key findings from Ericsson’s “Wearable Technology and the Internet of Things” report

  • Wearables become the most personal devices.
    • Two in five users of wearables say they feel naked when not wearing their device, with one in five even sleeping with it on.
    • Despite this, a quarter of those who have bought wearables in the past three months say their expectations have not been met.

“Although consumers show greatest interest in devices related to safety, we also see an openness to wearable technology further away from today’s generation. In five years’ time, walking around with an ingestible sensor, which tracks your body temperature and adjusts the thermostat setting automatically once you arrive home, may be a reality,” says Sing Sethi, Ericsson’s ConsumerLab spokesperson for the report.

  • Consumers predict the wearables inflection point to be beyond 2020.
    • 6 out of 10 smartphone users are confident that wearables will have uses beyond health and wellness.
    • Consumers predict that most wearables ideas will only become mainstream beyond 2020. However, current users of wearables believe the development will be much faster.
  • Internet of Things (IoT) future shaped by wearables.
    • 74 percent believe multiple wearables and sensors will help them interact with other devices and physical things around them, whilst 1 in 3 smartphone users believes they will wear at least 5 wearables beyond 2020.
    • Thus, a setback in wearables adoption might delay the overall adoption of the IoT among consumers.

IoT to overtake mobile phones by 2018 – Ericsson Mobility Report

Friday, June 3rd, 2016

The Ericsson Mobility Report forecasts that 16 billion connected devices are expected to join the Internet of Things by end 2021.

Between 2015 and 2021, the number of IoT connected devices is expected to grow 23 percent annually, of which cellular IoT is forecast to have the highest growth rate.

Between 2015 and 2021, the number of IoT connected devices is expected to grow 23 percent annually, of which cellular IoT is forecast to have the highest growth rate.

Internet of Things (IoT) is set to overtake mobile phones as the largest category of connected device by 2018.

Between 2015 and 2021, the number of IoT connected devices is expected to grow 23 percent annually, of which cellular IoT is forecast to have the highest growth rate.

“IoT is now accelerating as device costs fall and innovative applications emerge. From 2020, commercial deployment of 5G networks will provide additional capabilities that are critical for IoT, such as network slicing and the capacity to connect exponentially more devices than is possible today,” said Rima Qureshi, Senior Vice President & Chief Strategy Officer, Ericsson.

Of the 28 billion total devices that will be connected by 2021, close to 16 billion will be IoT devices.

Western Europe will lead the way in adding IoT connections – the number of IoT devices in this market is projected to grow 400 percent by 2021.

This will principally be driven by regulatory requirements, for example for intelligent utility meters, and a growing demand for connected cars including the EU e-call directive to be implemented in 2018.

Smartphone subscriptions continue to increase and are forecast to surpass those for basic phones in Q3 this year.

Intel & Mitsubishi Electric collaborate to create Factory Automation Systems

Monday, September 29th, 2014

Intel and Mitsubishi Electric has announced a new collaboration to develop next-generation factory automation (FA) systems with Internet of Things (IoT) technologies and a pilot program at Intel’s backend manufacturing facility in Malaysia.

“The collaboration between Mitsubishi Electric and Intel on this IoT project has enabled field data from semiconductor manufacturing lines to be collected and analyzed to improve operational performance, yet also contribute energy savings for a more sustainable society,” said Masayuki Yamamoto, group senior vice president, Factory Automation Systems, Mitsubishi Electric Corporation.

“The collaboration between Mitsubishi Electric and Intel on this IoT project has enabled field data from semiconductor manufacturing lines to be collected and analyzed to improve operational performance, yet also contribute energy savings for a more sustainable society,” said Masayuki Yamamoto, group senior vice president, Factory Automation Systems, Mitsubishi Electric Corporation.

The pilot demonstrates the benefits of IoT in a factory setting with a focus on delivering productivity enhancement through innovative functions, such as predictive failure, by combining Intel’s expertise in developing solutions for IoT and Mitsubishi Electric’s “e-F@ctory” automation capabilities.

Intel realized a savings of US$9 million over the course of the pilot.

“We believe that other manufacturers can benefit from this joint Intel-Mitsubishi Electric solution, which combines big data analysis, optimized data capture and processing to deliver improved performance and optimized maintenance,” said Yamamoto san.
