Renesas’ Velocity Lab aims to speed embedded systems development

At its developer’s conference, Renesas Electronics America Inc. introduced Velocity Lab , a suite of home-grown and third-party development components to help customers develop embedded more solutions quickly.

Velocity Lab ties together advanced technologies in model-based design, simulation and automatic code generation, giving designers increased flexibility to change components for new system projects .

Key features :

  • Code generation and a virtual development environment, using Mathworks’ tools for strategy, SimuQuest’s QuantiPhi for drivers, and ETAS’s OSEK for scheduling
  • Transaction-level, cycle-accurate simulation of an entire system or portions of it, using Mathworks’ Simulink and Synopsys or Australian Semiconductor Technology Company.


Third-party suppliers include:

  • Applied Dynamics International
  • Australian Semiconductor Technology Company
  •  ETAS
  • Invirtech
  • Mathworks
  • Pi-SHURLOK LLC
  • SimuQuest, Inc.
  • Synopsys, Inc.


Availability : Velocity Lab supports Renesas Electronics’ 90-nm SH7254x and SH7253x MCU families for powertrain applications. Renesas Electronics America is also developing a Velocity Lab solution for the R8C and the V850 microcontroller families and expects to also port the solution to the RX Group and other MCUs in the future.
