Offers developers quick access to evaluation software and documentation to jump start evaluation and speed time to market
Through the Market Place, developers can quickly and easily access R-Car evaluation software, documentation such as hardware manuals, technical updates, application notes and basic software such as Linux and Android board support packages (BSPs).
Designed to boost the efficiency of mobility system development, Market Place will contribute to reducing the time required for development and jump-start evaluation projects using R-Car Starter Kits. Previously, to obtain these assets, developers had to sign a written software evaluation license agreement – a time-consuming process. With the new Market Place, after creating an account, developers can obtain the necessary software and related materials immediately by applying for a click-through license. The Market Place also offers user-friendly technical videos that provide 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 solutions they need including evaluation software from partner companies, which will substantially speed up mobility development for customers.”
