IAR Systems signs exclusive agreement with Renesas

IAR Systems Group has signed an agreement with Renesas Electronics Corporation concerning the Renesas Synergy Platform.
This agreement complements IAR Systems’ current license-based business model with a business model based on royalty payments.

“Platform solutions are the way to go for the IoT and future embedded applications as they enable simplified development and quick return on investment. The Synergy Platform has a unique position in providing these values,” says Stefan Skarin, CEO and President, IAR Systems Group AB.

With its current license-based business model, IAR Systems’ revenue is tied to the customers’ product development phase. The new agreement brings royalty-based revenue for the entire production time, which can continue on for many years. The full release of Renesas Synergy is planned for June 2016 and IAR Systems expects to start seeing revenue from the agreement during coming years, with a potential for future growth connected to an increase in the number of connected products.

“By 2020, there will be 50 billion connected products that all include at least one microprocessor. Renesas targets this market with the Synergy Platform and has the potential of gaining a large share of it,” comments Stefan Skarin. “The agreement with Renesas is part of IAR Systems’ strategic plan towards the future of embedded development and will strengthen us long-term.”
