SINGAPORE, March 29, 2017 — Renesas Electronics Singapore, a premier supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions in South-East Asia, India and Oceania, today announced it will showcase its Renesas IoT Sandbox, at IoT Asia 2017 in booth D05, on March 29-30, 2017, in Singapore. The Renesas IoT Sandbox is a comprehensive cloud-based environment where customers and partners can prototype their Internet of Things (IoT) solutions and accelerate their innovative big ideas to market.

The Renesas IoT Sandbox enables personalized data intelligence for system developers working with the Renesas SynergyTM Platform, the Renesas RL78 Family and RX Family of microcontrollers (MCUs), and the Renesas RZ Family of microprocessors (MPUs). System developers can leverage the Renesas IoT Sandbox to quickly and easily develop end-to-end prototypes for home appliances, wearables, building automation, and other IoT products using near-real-time data to make personalized, intelligent actions.

“With Singapore setting its sights on becoming a Smart Nation, the Internet of Things is set to play a bigger role in enhancing the ability of smart applications and devices to work together. Defining an IoT solution involves complex decisions and requires many functions of the enterprise to align—from technology, production, sales, and business”, said Ronnie Ho, Director of Marketing, General Purpose Division, Renesas Electronics Singapore. “The Renesas IoT Sandbox provides an easy-to-use toolbox to turn product ideas into prototype in a single, secure environment, enabling customers to easily integrate up to the cloud and down to the embedded devices, to bring greater data intelligence to their connected applications.”

About the Renesas IoT Sandbox

Powered by cloud services from Medium One, a leading Internet of Things (IoT) Data Intelligence company, the Renesas IoT Sandbox integrates Renesas embedded MCUs and software, which are used to collect and locally analyze data from a variety of sensors, control the output of peripherals such as touch screen displays and actuators, and connect to wireless radios and wired interfaces that provide the two-way communication to the Renesas IoT Sandbox where data intelligence algorithms can be executed. Bringing together all of the components needed for end-to-end IoT solutions, the Renesas IoT Sandbox puts designers and developers on a clear path from prototype to production.

MQTT over transport-level security (TLS) establishes a secure connection between the Renesas device and kit and the Renesas IoT Sandbox. Multi-connectivity support, including Bluetooth ®, LoRa ®, Ethernet, Wi-Fi, and cellular/LTE, provides flexibility for system developers to find the right fit for their applications.
