Japanese semiconductor manufacturer Renesas Electronics Corporation has released IP Utilities – a new series of solutions aimed at simplifying the development of devices incorporating Renesas intellectual property (IP).

The new IP Utilities include application packages and evaluation kits, as well as expanding the company’s growing portfolio of leading-edge IP licenses.

With the emergence of CPUs based on open-source architectures such as RISC-V, the use of licensed IP for device development is becoming more attractive from the cost, time and design risk perspectives.

Developing original devices has become very demanding in terms of both the growing number of steps and the time required, due to the need to verify many IP component combinations, such as peripheral functions and application-specific functions.

The company said that leveraging it’s extensive manufacturing expertise and the new IP Utilities solutions, developers can confidently shorten the development time for their original semiconductor devices based on Renesas’ highly reliable IP and reduce the time to market.

Commenting on the development, Tetsuya Matsumoto, Vice President, Shared R&D Core IP Division at Renesas said that “our IP portfolio lineup has grown to include more than 80 offerings since Renesas first entered the IP licensing market in 2018.” 

“Where most IP vendors offer only individual IP cores, we are providing developers access to rich IP solutions that includes proven CPUs and peripheral IPs. The introduction of the new IP Utilities opens up opportunities to create new IP markets and further expand our business that benefit from our extensive experience in semiconductor design,” Matsumoto added.

The new IP Utilities offerings include:

  • Application packages that allow development of original microcontroller (MCU) with a short turnaround time (TAT)
  • Early adopter kit enabling early evaluation of AI accelerator cores
  • IP core configuration simplification tools
  • TCAM front end library to study product specifications
  • Equivalent EMC design consulting for devices

Meanwhile, the company is planning to expand its lineup of IP Utilities with future offerings such as an evaluation environment for immediate evaluation of Ethernet TSN performance and an evaluation board mounted with an FPGA incorporating CPU cores.
