Job Function:  Software


Our team design and develops simulators and tools for Virtual Simulation Environment of Renesas SoC and MCU to help customers to develop ECUs / vehicles more efficiently. We work with team members in development sites all over the world. Renesas has been providing a wide range of automotive semiconductor products (MCUs, SOCs, power devices, etc.) and boasts the second largest market share in the world, and its semiconductor products are installed in vehicles worldwide. On the other hand, with the evolution of autonomous driving and digital transformation (DX), the amount of the software installed in a single vehicle exceeds 50 million lines or more, and the software is becoming increasingly important in the automotive industry. Therefore, our important mission is to provide not only semiconductor products but also software development environment and tools to support our customers' product development.

In order to support the creation of so-called “software defined vehicles” and provide new value to vehicles, Renesas believes that it is important for our business to break away from the conventional concept of in-vehicle embedded software development and propose / implement Virtual Simulation Environment that contributes to realize DX of vehicle development.
