Green Hills Software Receives “Best of Show” Honors for New TimeMachine Debugger

SANTA BARBARA, CA — September 30, 2003 —  Green Hills Software, Inc., the technology leader in real-time operating systems and embedded software development tools, today announced that Venture Development Corporation (VDC) selected TimeMachine as “Best of Show” at the Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) in Boston. TimeMachine is the first debugger to provide developers with complete visibility into an application’s precise behavior both forward and backward in time.

Conference attendees watch Green Hills product demonstrations “TimeMachine was the most innovative new product demonstrated at ESC,” said Chris Lanfear, research analyst, Venture Development Corporation.

“The engineering staff at Green Hills did an incredible job of developing a product that has such significant impact on an embedded developer’s productivity,” said David Kleidermacher. “We are pleased that VDC recognized our efforts to offer a truly ingenious product and the only debugger that can step back in time.”

About TimeMachine

TimeMachine gives developers the ability to run and step an application back in time after a failure occurs, allowing easy identification of its root cause. This avoids the tedious and open-ended process of trial-and-error debugging required by previous generations of temporally-challenged debuggers.

TimeMachine exploits the power of the Green Hills SuperTrace probe that can collect up to a Gigabyte of trace data, more than 20 times the typical trace depth of other probes. SuperTrace works with trace ports running at speeds beyond 300 MHz, collecting trace data while the CPU executes at full speed. The TimeMachine software then analyzes the trace data to reconstruct the code execution steps that the processor followed. “Once a bug has been trapped in the SuperTrace Probe, TimeMachine makes it easy to eradicate the bug,” concluded Kleidermacher.
