Development tools are also available under the categories: starter kits and platforms, OS, middleware and drivers, IDEs and project managers, coding tools, emulation and debugging flash and PROM programming, and boards and kits. Renesas Electronics was established in April 2010 with the integration of NEC Electronics Corporation and Renesas Technology Corporation. It is headquartered in Tokyo, Japan.


2002: The company was founded on November 1, 2002, and is headquartered in Kawasaki, Japan. Hitachi reached an agreement with IBM on a new joint hard disk drive (HDD) company, Hitachi Global Storage Technologies, to operate in San Jose, California, USA. Renesas Electronics was originally known as Renesas Technology when the company was established.

2003: Renesas Technology became official in April, as the non-DRAM joint venture of Hitachi and Mitsubishi.

2010: A basic agreement to merge was reached by April and materialized on the first day, forming the fourth-largest semiconductor company by revenue according to an estimation from iSuppli. In December, Renesas Mobile Corporation (RMC) was created by integrating the Mobile Multimedia Business Unit of Renesas with the acquired Nokia Wireless Modem Business Unit.

2012: For the year-end March 31st, Renesas Electronics lost 62.6 billion yen. In December, INCJ, a Japanese public-private fund, and several key clients decided to invest in the company. The company decided to restructure its business, including the sale and consolidation of its Japanese domestic plants, to get profitable. The DRAM businesses of the three had become part of Elpida Memory, which went bankrupt this year before being acquired by Micron Technology.

2013: In June, Renesas announced that it will close its subsidiary RenesasMobile. Renesas announced its new business direction and issued its corporate presentation titled "Reforming Renesas” in October.

2014: In July, the subsidiary Renesas Mobile Communication was consolidated, after the company had decided to withdraw from the 4G wireless business. In September, the sale of the display driver IC unit of Renesas to Synaptics was completed. The company recorded its first-ever profit and started operating as “Renesas Electronics Corporation”.

2016: In September, Renesas announced that it would acquire Intersil for $3.2 billion.

2017: In February, Renesas completed the acquisition. In April, Renesas unveiled a self-driving concept car at a global developer conference, stating that it will start delivering a new line of products for self-driving cars in December, as it takes on global giants such as Intel.

2018: In September, Renesas announced that it has agreed to buy Integrated Device Technology for $6.7 billion.

2019: The acquisition was completed in March.

2020: Renesas announced its plans to wind down its production of diodes and compound devices.

2021: In February, Renesas announced that it has agreed to buy Dialog Semiconductor for $5.9 billion. In March, a fire at a factory owned by a subsidiary of Renesas caused significant damage to equipment. The acquisition was completed in September.


“Our mission is to develop a safer, healthier, greener, and smarter world by providing intelligence to our four focus growth segments: Automotive, Industrial, Infrastructure, and IoT that are all vital to our daily lives, meaning our products and solutions are embedded everywhere.”
