GADGET RENESAS


Overview

Linking Ideas and Electronics

Gadget Renesas is a project that links ideas and electronics. It provides boards that make it possible to prototype ideas quickly, a community where users can interact, and events to help users build their projects to make their ideas reality in a fun way.

▲'Easy to use' high speed prototyping platform such as fabrication board and Web compiler


▲User's work examples utilizing platform


Background

The maker movement
With the maker movement in which the methods of digital fabrication have become accesssible at a personal scale,so many people able to freely share ideas and spread inspiration across the web, the number of people who want to build something from their ideas have increased.



In response to this movement, Gadget Renesas provides boards that make it possible to prototyoe ideas quickly, a community where users can interact, and events to help users build their projects to make their ideas reality in a fun way.

▲User's work presentaion 'Renesas Night' held twice a year


Identity

Items made by users for users

Gadget Renesas boards are made by users for users.We'd like to get feedback from users on boards before they are generally released.We call such users "producers". Your feedback is invaluable.Producer meetings are held two or three times for each board.

▲Feedback Cycle


The User assets utilization

The open source movement, initially focused on software,has been expanding into open-source hardware,assisted to freely utilize the user's assets such as sample programs, prototyping products distributed on the web.Gadget Renesas facilitates improving the add value on your products.
GR-SAKURA,GR-KURUMI are compatible with Arduino languages, standard library. Those boards will help you with further additional functions and electric power saving on existing programs.
