Renesas Electronics, Express Logic, IAR Systems collaborate to extend Renesas Synergy secure IoT platform solution based on ARMv8-M architecture
Renesas Electronics Corp., Express Logic Inc. and IAR Systems announced their collaboration on the development of the next-generation Renesas Synergy Internet of Things (IoT) platform solution. The platform solution, based on the new ARM v8-M architecture, will enable a wider number of developers to rapidly create secure connected IoT devices.
The three IoT companies will use Express Logic’s ThreadX real-time operating systems (RTOS) with the IAR Embedded Workbench software development environment – all supporting the ARMv8-M architecture and leveraging ARM TrustZone security technology. These technologies will be a foundation for the next-generation Renesas Synergy Platform.
Renesas and Express Logic will jointly showcase a technology demonstration featuring the new platform solution from October 25 to 27, at ARM TechCon 2016.
The demonstration of the IoT platform development consists of a field-programmable gate array (FPGA) sub-system using two newly-announced ARMv8-M based CPU cores, the ARM Cortex -M23 and the Cortex-M33. Using IAR Embedded Workbench , the ThreadX RTOS was ported to the new cores bringing to life the mechanism separating secure and non-secure zones. With this capability as a foundation, the partners will create solutions for the pain points in IoT development. The ARMv8-M architecture provides a key security technology for these partners.
“As security breaches of connected devices is a real threat these days, we can see that our customers are looking for easy-to-use solutions with strong security features in both hardware and software,” said Stefan Skarin, CEO, IAR Systems.
