Following the initial group of partners from November 2019, Renesas has further expanded the company’s RA partner ecosystem to over 50 partners with more than 30 out-of-the-box solutions. The ecosystem now provides a wider range of technologies, including options for security, voice user interface, graphics, machine learning, and cloud. All of the new partner building block solutions are designated with the RA READY badge showing that it has been designed to solve real-world customer problems. Renesas will continue to grow the RA partner ecosystem with new partners and new out-of-the-box solutions.
“As designers juggle rapidly changing IoT design requirements with shrinking project timelines and budgets, the flexible platform design approach is key as it offers out-of-the-box building block options that allow designers to move forward quickly and with confidence,” said Kaushal Vora, Director of Strategic Partnerships & Global Ecosystem at Renesas. “We are excited with the collaboration started with our ecosystem partners last November, and we continue to invest in the ecosystem, offering our customers additional options to develop and bring their innovative IoT solutions to market quickly and reliably.”
