The " Lab on the Cloud " environment provides users with quick access to Renesas solutions before they receive a physical board or start a design. Boards are configured in a remote lab connected to the cloud and users access the live boards through an intuitive GUI.
Live video of each board allows users to test, monitor, and measure results instantly. The Lab on the Cloud environment utilizes a platform developed by Tenxer Technologies, and provides 24/7 access to, along with online support for, the company's solutions.
"Renesas recognizes the digital environment is rapidly evolving, and our goal is to be at the forefront of it," says Chris Allexandre, Senior Vice President of Renesas’ IoT and Infrastructure Business Unit. "We believe our Lab on the Cloud environment will be game changing for customers. By providing instant access to design tools, which typically take days or weeks to procure in hand, our customers can shorten their test time and, ultimately, time to market."
The company is initially providing access to nine popular evaluation boards in the Lab on the Cloud environment, with more becoming available in the coming months:
- MPPT-Based Solar Battery Charger
- USB-PD with Turbo Boost
- Buck-Boost Last Gasp Power Supply for Energy Meter
- Standard 4-20mA Loop - Industrial Receiver
- Arduino Shield Sensor Board
- Scalable HMI SMARC SoM with AI
- 1PH Static Energy Meter
- Digital Illuminometer
- Ultra-Low Power MCU RE Family
In addition, the company's complementary product portfolios of Analog + Power + Embedded Processing (MCUs and SoCs) work together to deliver comprehensive solutions. The company's product experts have developed " Winning Combinations " - compelling product combinations that help customers accelerate their designs and get to market faster.
These portfolio combinations focus on verticals including industrial, infrastructure, automotive, and consumer segments. The company currently offers more than 200 such combinations.
