Renesas, Express Logic, and IAR collaborate to bring strong security to IoT

Renesas Electronics, Express Logic and IAR Systems announce their collaboration on the development of the next-generation Renesas Synergy Internet of Things platform solution based on the new ARMv8-M architecture. The innovative platform solution will enable a wider number of developers to rapidly create secure connected IoT devices by reducing the complexity of designing and deploying advanced security technologies in embedded systems.

Three leading companies in the IoT space have collaborated on embedded platform development using Express Logic’s ThreadX 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 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, these market leading partners will create innovative solutions to the pain points brought on by challenges to deliver the IoT. The ARMv8-M architecture in the new cores announced today provides a new key security technology for these partners to leverage in changing how embedded systems support inventive business models in the age of the smart society.
