Green Hills Software Announces Support for MICROSAR from Vector on INTEGRITY RTOS Platform

Green Hills Software is collaborating with Vector to make the INTEGRITY® real-time operating system (RTOS) capable of native execution of MICROSAR, the AUTOSAR basic software from Vector. This development makes it possible to run MICROSAR on INTEGRITY-based ECUs and consolidate a range of vehicle services on just one microcontroller in order to simplify and cost-reduce the implementation of OEM-specific services. Developers of high-performance INTEGRITY or INTEGRITY Multivisor™ -based ECUs for domain controllers, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), next-generation digital clusters and modern infotainment systems will now be able to benefit from enabling MICROSAR features for a full range of automotive requirements, including the ability to realize OEM-specific diagnostic services, time-sensitive applications for streaming media data — such as audio video bridging (AVB) — and applications using specific automotive protocols including SOME/IP. The latest generation of electronic control units (ECUs) have increasing demands for computing power and memory. Dynamic memory management is often a requirement for new application areas. To consider the needs of modern automotive architectures, established ECU designs with proven AUTOSAR operating systems often supplement sophisticated systems that utilize increasingly powerful microprocessors. To address this need, many systems make use of two separate microcontrollers to run MICROSAR and INTEGRITY in parallel. With this latest support from Green Hills Software, the ISO 26262 and IEC 61508-certified INTEGRITY RTOS and MICROSAR can be integrated seamlessly and are able to deliver reduced system costs by sharing a single controller. Vector's support for new automotive-specific communication mechanisms, such as SOME/IP and Service Discovery, means that INTEGRITY-based ECUs can immediately interact with these new, service-oriented AUTOSAR clients. Streaming video or audio data in a car network is becoming a standard requirement for instrument clusters and infotainment systems. Audio/video broadcasting systems have strict requirements for timing, shaping and quality of service (QoS) of IP streams. With the MICROSAR basic software for Ethernet, INTEGRITY-based ECUs are now able to fully support AVB (audio video bridging) functionality.

Green Hills Software, Inc. Announces New ARMv8-R Architecture

Green Hills Software, Inc. announced new ARMv8-R architecture. The Green Hills Optimizing C/C++ Compilers achieved benchmark scores for ARM® Cortex®-R processors, as published by ARM Ltd., and certified by the EEMBC® consortium. The Cortex-R52 processor is the first instantiation of the ARMv8-R architecture and targets a diverse range of systems that demand advanced safety features with real-time efficient execution. The Green Hills compilers unlock these hardware capabilities for maximum performance and functional safety for next-generation microcontroller applications ranging from surgical automation to industrial safety to automotive powertrain. On the Cortex-R52 FPGA system, the certified AutoMark score is 1.36094 on the AutoBench 1.1 benchmark suite. AutoBench 1.1 contains 16 different algorithms used in automotive applications such as angle-to-time conversion, bit manipulation, road speed calculation, FIR filter and tooth-to-spark. The toolchain technology that generates the fast and smallest code for ARM Architecture, as well as many other 32-bit/64-bit architectures. The Green Hills toolchain has a strong functional safety pedigree – having received certificates by accredited independent agencies TÜV Nord and exida at the high levels of automotive and industrial functional safety, including ISO 26262 ASIL D and IEC 61508 SIL4. The Green Hills Software tools are used to build software running the most reliability-critical systems, including aircraft engines, automotive powertrains, medical devices and industrial robot controllers. Companies like Ford, Boeing, and Hewlett-Packard base the reliability of their products on the proven robustness of Green Hills Software toolchain technology.

Green Hills Software to Showcase its Technology for Automotive Electronics Solutions at the SAE 2016 Convergence Conference

Green Hills Software announced that it will showcase its forward-thinking technology for automotive electronics at the SAE 2016 Convergence conference, September 19 - 21, 2016 in Novi, Michigan. The company will demonstrate its latest innovations for creating and managing safety- and security-critical solutions for automotive and IoT devices in booth #210. Safety Instrument Clusters: the company will demonstrate the INTEGRITY RTOS and INTEGRITY Multivisor platform for the Renesas R-Car H3, featuring fully accelerated 3D graphics utilizing the PowerVR GX6650 3D graphics processing unit (GPU) for an INTEGRITY-based digital instrument cluster. The instrument cluster receives prioritized access to the GPU to achieve 60 frames per second, while simultaneously sharing access to the GPU for applications running on a virtualized Linux guest operating system.
