Green Hills Software Announces New MULTI Software Development Environment for Embedded Linux Developers

Green Hills Software announced a new MULTI software development environment for embedded Linux developers. MULTI for Linux leapfrogs all other solutions in the market. Until now, debugging Linux was a sad combination of print statements, command-line tools, and rudimentary graphical debuggers that are difficult to learn, setup, and use and lack the powerful control and visibility that modern electronic systems demand. This lack of high quality development tools presents a tremendous time-to-market and product robustness barrier to IoT designers, both seasoned and new. Green Hills Software's MULTI enables developers to seamlessly control and debug all aspects of an embedded Linux system, including the Linux kernel, kernel threads, user mode threads and processes, and interrupt service routines (ISRs), all from a single tool. Developers can simultaneously interact with these entities in a single window or in separate windows per instance. MULTI enables developers to quickly master the most difficult device development challenges, including kernel panics, execution and data flows between user processes and the kernel, early hardware bring-up, device drivers, and performance analysis and tuning. Key capabilities of Green Hills Software's Linux debugging and development suite include: Support for all modern embedded Linux versions, regardless of download source or Linux support vendor, and including Android distributions, Leverages the Green Hills Probe JTAG device for 'stop-mode' debugging of kernel, ISRs, and user mode applications, Leverages I/O peripheral connections for "run-mode" debugging of applications, where the CPU is never halted, Fully multicore/SMP aware, Advanced visualization and manipulation of Linux kernel data structures, including shared memory regions, semaphores, and message queues, Advanced run control features available in stop mode and run mode enable seamless debugging of newly created threads and processes, zero-overhead breakpoints to enable visibility without intrusiveness, and the ability to debug system calls based on specific calling threads, Powerful software browsing, editing, and exploration capabilities and Support for GNU GCC C/C++ compilers with optional support for Green Hills C/C++ compilers. MULTI for Linux is available for ARM and Power Architecture, with other CPU architectures available upon request.

Green Hills Software Announces Renesas Electronics’s R-Car Automotive Platform

Green Hills Software announced a comprehensive family of solutions for the Renesas ARM Cortex-A15 and Cortex-A7 based R-Car platform based around the Green Hills INTEGRITY real time operating system (RTOS) and INTEGRITY Multivisor secure hypervisor, including support for the revolutionary new R-Car V2H ADAS platform announced by Renesas Electronics Corporation. Green Hills has worked with Renesas, the world's number one microcontroller supplier, to create an 'INTEGRITY for R-Car' support package that includes support for all of the major features of the R-Car processors. The supported high-performance OpenGL ES 3D graphics processor enables digital cluster and infotainment solutions with unparalleled graphics quality. The INTEGRITY Multivisor utilizes the ARM virtualization extensions available on the Renesas R-Car devices to enable one of the high performing multi-domain infotainment and safety-critical execution environments for next-generation automotive designs. Shipping since 2003, INTEGRITY Multivisor is the only virtualization solution built upon safety-certified separation kernel technology that provides highly assured isolation between the instrument cluster, ADAS, rear-view camera, and other safety-critical automotive subsystems functions while simultaneously and safely hosting popular infotainment operating systems such as Linux and Android, on a same single multi core Renesas R-Car device. This powerful, next-generation automotive ECU consolidation architecture also enables OEMs and Tier 1s to reduce design/integration complexity and time-to-market while delivering the core foundation for the vehicle software-defined cockpit. The on-chip image recognition and image processing using Image Processor (IMP) and Image Renderer peripherals of the Renesas R-Car devices, together with the full complement of drivers for hardware accelerated image decoders and video signal processors, is a must-have for high-performance safety-focused ADAS vision solutions. The fast and highly precise Green Hills Ethernet AVB (Audio Video Bridging) solution allows for complete integration into the modern vehicle, and provides the performance needed for fusion of multiple ADAS information channels. The acclaimed safety pedigree of the INTEGRITY RTOS is a requirement for any ADAS solution being built to meet modern functional safety and ISO 26262 requirements. The semi-autonomous and autonomous vehicles of will be built on the 'INTEGRITY for R-Car' solution that is available now. INTEGRITY releases supporting the R-Car family of devices are available from Green Hills on August 28, 2014. The company will be attending this private exhibition to be held at The Prince Park Tower Tokyo hotel on September 2 of this year to introduce and demonstrate its R-Car V2H and other R-Car solutions.

Green Hills Software, Inc. Adds Development Support for Microchip Technology's 32-Bit PIC Microcontrollers

Green Hills Software, Inc. announced the availability of its software development product suite with added support for the latest 32-bit microcontroller family from Microchip Technology Inc. The Green Hills offering includes the MULTI(R) integrated development environment, Green Hills compilers, and Green Hills Probe, which are now available for Microchip's PIC(R)32MZ family of microcontrollers (MCUs). Microchip's PIC32MZ product line is based on the MIPS(R) microAptiv(TM) core, runs at 200 MHz/330 DMIPS, achieves a score of 654 CoreMarks(TM), has high integration and memory density, and provides up to 35% code compression. The Green Hills Software development environment is an integrated set of tools that is now optimized to Microchips' latest 32-bit MCUs, leveraging CPU-specific features for high performance and minimal code size. For applications requiring embedded connectivity, the family includes Hi-Speed USB, Ethernet and CAN, along with a broad set of wired and wireless protocol stacks. Many embedded applications are adding better graphics displays, and the PIC32MZ can support up to a WQVGA display without any external graphics chips. Streaming/digital audio applications can take advantage of this family's 159 DSP instructions, large memory, peripherals such as I2S, and available software. Green Hills now supports Microchip's PIC32MZ MCUs with its development tools, including the complete Green Hills tools environment, consisting of compilers, debugger, IDE and probes.
