Early Access Support for ARMv8-A Based 64-bit Architecture

Green Hills Software : 03 March, 2014  (New Product)
Development system for embedded software for ARM Cortex-A50 processors
Early Access Support for ARMv8-A Based 64-bit Architecture

Green Hills Software has announced an industry-first embedded software development solution built on its Integrity real-time operating system (RTOS) and comprehensive MULTI integrated development environment (IDE) for the ARM Cortex-A50 processor series. With this support, engineering teams get a risk-reducing early start on their next-generation high-performance/low-power product designs in automotive, mobile devices, networking infrastructure, industrial, Mil/Aero and the Internet of Things (IoT).

Green Hills 64-bit enabled solutions for the new ARMv8-A architecture work with the ARM Fast Model virtual platform and consists of:

* Integrity RTOS which has achieved the highest functional safety certification levels in industrial, medical, automotive and railway, and delivers real-time determinism with high-performance by leveraging the Cortex-A50 processor series featuring a 64-bit architecture and other performance accelerators

* Record-setting Green Hills C/C++ Optimizing Compilers/assembler and 64-bit toolchain

* MULTI 64-bit IDE debugger, MISRA C/C++ code quality adherence, profiler and many other integrated timesaving tools.

The Cortex-A57 processor is ARM’s most advanced high-performance processor, while the Cortex-A53 processor is the world’s smallest 64-bit processor and ARM’s most advanced high-efficiency processor. The Cortex-A50 processor series delivers the power of 64-bit processing with advancements in hardware virtualization and TrustZone® security, an improved instruction set architecture and 100% 32-bit application compatibility to enable the next wave of embedded device functionality which is fully compatible with the existing ARM software base.

“ARM is committed to creating a rich, diverse ecosystem to enable the ARMv8-A based architecture to proliferate across a broad set of applications and markets,” said Hobson Bullman, general manager of development solutions, ARM. “We are pleased to be working closely together with Green Hills on important early engagements with lead silicon partners and mutual customers using the combination of the ARM Fast Model virtual platform technology and the extensive suite of Green Hills software products.”

For more than 15 years, Green Hills has been a supplier for ARM processor-based device manufacturers with its safe and secure Integrity real-time operating system, Integrity Multivisor secure hypervisor, TimeMachine rewind debugger and record-breaking C/C++ compilers – developed in close collaboration with ARM.

“Software development cycles for embedded systems can be delayed waiting for expensive, changing early development hardware,” said David Kleidermacher, chief technology officer at Green Hills Software. “Our customers benefit – in both time and resources – by performing their architecture studies and algorithm evaluations in a rich C/C+ development environment with the Integrity RTOS running on a fully-validated simulator. This kind of high-quality early development and testing before silicon availability reduces schedule risk significantly.”
