Renesas Electronics Corporation is a Japanese semiconductor manufacturer headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, initially incorporated in 2002 as Renesas Technology, the consolidated entity of the semiconductor units of Hitachi and Mitsubishi excluding their dynamic random-access memory businesses, to which NEC Electronics merged in 2010, resulting in a minor change in the corporate name and logo to as it is now.
In the 2000s to early 2010s, Renesas had been one of the six largest semiconductor companies in the world. As of 2014, it was the world's largest automotive semiconductor maker, and the world's largest maker of microcontrollers. The company also has presences in the markets of analogue and mixed-signal integrated circuits, memory devices, and SoCs.
The brand Renesas is a contraction of "Renaissance Semiconductor for Advanced Solutions".
