Renesas Electronics Corporation has expanded its Lab on the Cloud environment to ease the configuration and testing process and speed time to market. It has improved its cloud-connected lab with new advanced GUI features and new design parameters that produce a more engaging and ergonomic user experience and give designers greater configuration flexibility.
Lab on the Cloud allows customers to remotely access, configure, monitor, test, and measure solutions instantly 24/7 in a full-fledged, cloud-connected lab. It comprises evaluation boards for popular devices, proof of concept boards from the company’s Winning Combinations, and other solutions from its partners. Users can access the physical lab via a convenient PC-based GUI that instantly allows them to begin configuring and testing designs without a physical board in hand.
The new user-friendly GUI includes new parameters for control and extra results for monitoring. The ergonomic lab layout, advanced features, and intuitive user interface make it simpler for users to swiftly navigate the environment. For instance, the centralised live camera feed provides users with a live view of the complete lab setup and results, including the capability to zoom in and out on real-time testing and data capture readings.
“As application requirements continue to change rapidly, customers are looking for a powerful yet flexible and easy-to-use approach to design configuration and testing,” said DK Singh, senior director of the System and Solutions Team at Renesas. “We are continually working to make designing with Renesas products easier and faster, and the enhanced Lab on the Cloud environment takes product selection and testing capabilities to the next.”
The company has also added 14 popular evaluation boards to the Lab on the Cloud environment. It now boasts 23 different boards providing diversified application segments with a variety of devices.
