The Market Place will allow the download of various solutions that were designed for Renesas’ R-Car automotive SoCs. Market Place can also be used as a portal to get reference evaluation software from R-Car Consortium Proactive Partners or to contact Proactive Partner companies directly for support.
The Market Place will allow developers to quickly access R-Car evaluation software, documentation such as hardware manuals, technical updates, application notes, and basic software such as Linux and Android BSPs. The Market Place is intended to provide a quick start and efficient development of mobility systems. It will reduce the time required for development and help quickly begin evaluation projects using R-Car Starter Kits. All developers have to do to take advantage of Market Place is to create an account. Then they can simply download the necessary software and related materials immediately by applying for a click-through license. The Market Place also hosts technical videos that show additional details on the usage and features of R-Car products.
“In today’s shifting business landscape, customers are requiring quick access to the solutions and related information to undertake development under the new normal,” said Naoki Yoshida, Vice President of Automotive Digital Product Marketing Division at Renesas. “The launch of our Market Place allows developers to instantly download solution they need including evaluation software from partner companies, which will substantially speed up mobility development for customers.”
Renesas’ R-Car Consortium was founded in 2005 to be a customer-oriented ecosystem that offers an open platform for the mobility market. The R-Car Consortium currently has 253 consortium partner companies.
