Renode has been designed to revolutionize the way we develop sophisticated embedded systems just like RISC-V is set to transform all computing platforms. A business-friendly open source project coming from a software-driven embedded design house, Renode is the perfect match for both the Mi-V Ecosystem, and the RISC-V technology in general.
The Zephyr Project's goals are convergent with those of Renode: building scalable, secure and well-architected IoT systems. The two projects do joint marketing, development and demos, and Renode is one of the recommended Zephyr development tools which lets users simulate complex wireless (and wired) setups running real binaries so that they can do testing, continuous integration and debugging to an extent that wasn't imaginable before.
A fully-fledged, multi-device product development project that benefited from the leverage offered by Renode.
Renode allowed us to adopt a Continuous Integration approach for the project' EFR32 nodes from the very beginning.
Renode's environment simulation capabilities made it possible to simulate complete sensor nodes and test the Zephyr-based firmware against various environmental circumstances, increasing test coverage for this Swedish customer in the utilities market.
RISE SICS (Swedish Institute of Computer Science) is a household name in IoT systems and low-power networking, responsible for technologies such as lwIP or the Contiki-NG RTOS. A long-time partner of Antmicro, RISE SICS are early adopters of Renode and firm believers in simulation-based development methodologies.
As one of the flagship use cases, we developed a multi-node setup with support for hardware cryptography based on TI CC2538 for SICS's security team for cross-validation of protocol implementations and Contiki-NG regression testing. Renode is now included as a target in the Contiki-NG mainline and the tool is available in the official Contiki-NG Docker image.
