Renesas Electronics has announced a new organisational structure and management team appointments effective 1 January, 2024, to “support the company in its next phase of growth and development to become the leader in embedded semiconductor[s]”, according to a statement.

The chip maker said it was establishing a technology based organisation to provide “more comprehensive and tailored solution offerings”.
