“Platform Security Architecture was a cornerstone for establishing a necessary security foundation for IoT that everyone can appreciate and apply. As lead partner for PSA Certified Level 1 2020, I’m very pleased that it is inclusive of the leading industry recognized certification standards, focusing on addressing cyber security risks and mitigations. Renesas is poised to launch new products in 2020 with enhanced security features, and we are looking forward to augmenting our current portfolio of PSA Certified Level 1 products by achieving PSA Level 2 Certification.”
PSA Certified Solutions
The PSA Certified Renesas Synergy and RA Family ecosystems help accelerate the development of IoT applications with core technologies such as security, safety, connectivity, and HMI. Designing with Renesas MCUs makes it easy for engineers to develop Internet of Things (IoT) endpoint and edge devices for industrial and building automation, metering, healthcare, and home appliance applications.
Renesas (RA) Family
The flexible RA (Renesas Advanced) 32-bit MCUs are industry leading 32-bit MCUs with the Arm® Cortex®-M33, -M23 and -M4 processor cores and PSA certification. The RA Family delivers key advantages compared to competitive Arm Cortex-M MCUs by providing stronger embedded security, superior CoreMark® performance, and ultra-low power operation. PSA certification provides customers the confidence and assurance to quickly deploy secure IoT endpoint and edge devices, and smart factory equipment for Industry 4.0.
Renesas Synergy™ Platform
The Renesas Synergy Platform, winner of the 2015 Elektra Internet of Things Product Innovation Award, is a complete and qualified platform for the development of embedded and IoT applications. It was designed to provide engineers with a platform that already has basic system elements implemented, configured and tested, so engineers can eliminate the time normally needed to implement and integrate base-line functionality and move almost immediately to product design, potentially reducing time to market by months. This allows system manufacturers to truly differentiate and increase the value of the end product they create.
