Green Hills Software Announces Support for Texas Instruments TDA2x ADAS Processor Family

Green Hills Software, Inc. announced that it has made available its automotive safety and security products, including the INTEGRITY real-time operating system and INTEGRITY Multivisor virtualization solution for the Texas Instruments (TI) TDA2x processor product family and TI's Vision SDK, targeting Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). This new combination enables superior single system performance with proven safety and unmatched security, critical requirements for ADAS. Leveraging INTEGRITY this powerful next-generation automotive platform will enable automotive OEMs and Tier 1s to reduce integration complexity and time-to-market while delivering unmatched advancements in the next generations of in-vehicle electronics. The TI TDA2x 'ADAS System On Chip' brings device integration, flexibility, and scalability to ADAS. TDA2x includes the industry's broadest range of IP blocks on a single device, including two Cortex-A15 applications processors, four Cortex M4 processors, two C66x DSPs, four TI Embedded Vision Engine (EVE) processors, two SGX544 graphics processors, high-definition video processor, and numerous connectivity peripherals. The TDA2x and its powerful Vision SDK framework enable engineers to develop and deploy multiple high-performance ADAS algorithms that run concurrently within the chip. Key capabilities of Green Hills Software's solution for TI TDA2x include: Hardware accelerated 3D graphics running natively on INTEGRITY real-time operating system; Optimized, mature Cortex-A15 hypervisor support, including hosting of TI's Linux guest operating systems; Green Hills Software's FIPS 140-2 and NSA Suite B cryptographic library optimized for ARM Architecture; and complete ISO 26262 certification and lifecycle support for both development tools and RTOS.

Green Hills Software Adds Virtualized Graphics to Renesas R-Car Software Platform

Green Hills Software announced the addition of virtualized, accelerated graphics support for Renesas R-Car H2 processors in its INTEGRITY Multivisor virtualization solution, targeting next-generation graphics-intensive automotive applications, such as reconfigurable clusters, navigation systems, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), and infotainment. The technology enables increased flexibility of design choices and reduced cost through hardware consolidation. The update to INTEGRITY Multivisor leverages work performed by Green Hills Software, Renesas, and Imagination Technologies, enabling a powerful virtualization solution that includes top-end graphics performance as well as strong isolation between safety-critical and general purpose workloads. For example, INTEGRITY Multivisor on Renesas R-Car H2 enables a real-time ADAS subsystem and a Yocto Linux-based cluster subsystem to execute concurrently, both environments taking advantage of the high-end graphics performance of the H2's integrated Imagination Technologies PowerVR G6400 GPU while ensuring Yocto cannot impact the ADAS functions executing natively on the INTEGRITY safety-certified microkernel. Key capabilities of Green Hills Software's INTEGRITY Multivisor for Renesas R-Car platforms include: Support for Yocto Linux and other guest operating systems, High-performance, virtualized access to PowerVR G6400 GPU, ISO 26262 safety-certifiable run-time platform for ADAS and other critical systems and Virtualization optimized for ARM Virtualization Extensions included in R-Car H2's Cortex A15-based cores. INTEGRITY Multivisor for Renesas R-Car is available immediately.

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.
