Green Hills Software Expands INTEGRITY RTOS Support to Renesas' 2nd-Generation 
R-Car Product Family 
Provides Guaranteed Safety Separation, Fast Graphics and Boot
Performance for Multicore ARM Cortex-A15/A7 
TOKYO, JAPAN and SANTA BARBARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 09/27/13 -- 
Green Hills Software, the largest independent vendor of embedded
software solutions, today announced its support of the
industry-leading INTEGRITY(R) real-time operating system (RTOS) and
comprehensive software development and run-time solutions for Renesas
Electronics' 2nd-generation R-Car series of SoCs (system-on-chip).
Green Hills Software offers a unique solution to the ARM(R)
Cortex(TM)-A15 and A7 architectures, including INTEGRITY
Multivisor(TM) virtualization technology, the INTEGRITY RTOS,
MULTI(R) multicore debugger, TimeMachine(TM) trace suite,
GPU-accelerated graphics, a rich suite of middleware and the Green
Hills family of JTAG and trace probes.  
Renesas Electronics' 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.  
"Future automotive systems from 2015 and beyond will demand fast
startup capabilities and fast rendering performance for high-quality
designs that match the luxuriousness of the vehicles using these
embedded R-Car-based devices, as well as the ability to help the
driver establish an even higher level of safety with the vehicle,"
said Tatsuya Nishihara, vice president, chief of Automotive Solutions
Business Division at Renesas Electronics. "The combination of
Renesas' new R-Car devices with Green Hills Software's commitment to
functional safety requirements bundled with its high-quality and
high-performance INTEGRITY RTOS and INTEGRITY Multivisor
virtualization technology provides a platform that our customers both
demand and will enjoy using."
