“Intel’s 7-year life cycle commitment to providing high quality, reliable and feature-rich Intel Core platforms for the embedded marketplace is an important feature enabling developers to provide solutions across numerous market segments and products,” remarked Matt Langman, director of product marketing, Intel Embedded Computing Division. “The integrated capabilities in the new 2nd generation Core processor family – such as Intel Advanced Vector Extensions (Intel AVX) and enhanced visual capabilities – enable developers to utilize Green Hills Software’s products to deliver next-generation solutions for point-of-sale, digital signage and medical devices.”
INTEGRITY for the 2nd Generation Intel Core Processor Family
The unique and modern technology of the Green Hills INTEGRITY RTOS achieves unprecedented levels of security, safety, and availability for applications in transportation, industrial control, mobile, medical, aerospace, point-of-sale and other industries. The INTEGRITY RTOS is the foundation for the Green Hills Software Platform for Industrial Safety, with certification by TÜV to IEC 61508 at Safety Integrity Level 3 (SIL 3), in addition to the EN 50128 SWSIL 4 Railway Safety Certification. The INTEGRITY-178B RTOS is also the first operating system technology certified by NIAP (National Information Assurance Partnership comprised of NSA & NIST) to EAL6+, High Robustness, the highest Common Criteria security level ever achieved for a software product. Only an EAL6+, High Robustness operating system is certified to protect high value assets from sophisticated attackers.
The Ultimate Open Platform
With its industry-certified POSIX-conformant API and ability to host general purpose operating systems such as Linux/Meego, Android, and Windows in secure virtual machines, the INTEGRITY RTOS can run more application software than any other operating platform, while maintaining the absolute highest level of security, reliability and real-time determinism for critical components, algorithms, applications, and subsystems. Green Hills Software brings the world’s market-leading embedded software solutions to the world’s most ubiquitous microprocessor architecture, adapted to power-constrained, high reliability embedded systems.
In addition to the INTEGRITY real-time operating system, the integrated Green Hills software development solution for the 2nd generation Intel Core processor family consists of the following components:
• INTEGRITY Secure Virtualization (ISV) – enabling the secure integration of general purpose operating systems such as Linux
• Comprehensive portfolio of embedded communications, file systems, and other middleware
• MULTI integrated development environment – providing the leading software development tool set for embedded software developers
• Green Hills Optimized C/C++ compilers – generating high-quality and efficient code for the Intel Architecture
• Green Hills Probe – providing powerful multicore debug control for board-bring up, device driver development and system-level debugging.
