Green Hills expands INTEGRITY RTOS support to Renesas's R-Car series of SoCs
Oct 02, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
Green Hills Software has announced its support of the INTEGRITY real-time operating system, or RTOS, and software development and run-time solutions for Renesas Electronics's second-generation R-Car series of SoCs, or system-on-chip.
Green Hills Software offers a unique solution to the ARM Cortex-A15 and A7 architectures, including INTEGRITY Multivisor virtualization technology, the INTEGRITY RTOS, MULTI multicore debugger, TimeMachine trace suite, GPU-accelerated graphics, a rich suite of middleware and the Green Hills family of JTAG and trace probes.
Renesas Electronics's R-Car devices are SoCs offering low power consumption and high system integration and among the R-Car series of SoCs, the second-generation R-Car H2 and R-Car M2 are ideal for next-generation high-end automotive infotainment systems, multimedia and navigations systems, instrument clusters and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). The Green Hills solution for R-Car will be the industry's only run-time and development software on that platform with guaranteed real-time determinism and safety for manufacturers of automotive devices requiring an RTOS designed to meet functional safety requirements combined with powerful human-machine interfaces (HMI), multicore debugging, optimal compiler performance and deep-visibility trace debugging.
Green Hills Software offers a comprehensive solution for ARM Cortex-A15 and A7 devices including INTEGRITY RTOS for applications demanding safety, reliability and security with HMI design software and drivers for the INTEGRITY RTOS; MULTI integrated software development environment featuring multicore debugger, profiler and many other integrated time-saving tools; tool chain compliant to automotive and industrial safety standards ISO 26262 Automotive Safety Integrity Level D (ASIL-D) and IEC 61508 Safety Integrity Level 3 (SIL 3); TimeMachine debugger and SuperTrace probe for revolutionary rewind debugging and non-intrusive analysis; EEMBC-certified C/C++ compilers for R-Car's Cortex-A15 and A7 cores that outperform competing compilers as much as 30-35%; code quality tools including MISRA C/C++ and DoubleCheck static analyzer; and Green Hills probe for hardware bring-up and low-level debugging and development.
INTEGRITY Multivisor technology combines a trusted microkernel with system virtualization technology into an IVI platform featuring configurable software partitions, shared graphics, real-time and safety-critical processing, and one or more infotainment guest operating systems.
"Green Hills is excited to support the new R-Car devices as part of its more than 20-year history of supporting Renesas' automotive devices," said Tim Reed, vice president of Advanced Products at Green Hills Software. "Green Hills is a market leader with a long history of applying its leading-edge RTOS, compiler, debugging and hypervisor software technology to ARM-based processors."
