Green Hills Software to Present and Exhibit at Embedded Systems Conference Boston 2009

SANTA BARBARA, CA—September 15, 2009 — Green Hills Software, Inc., the largest independent vendor of embedded software solutions, will deliver technology presentations at the Embedded Systems Conference in Boston, MA, during the week of September 21, 2009. At booth #409, Green Hills Software will also demonstrate its latest embedded software solutions.

Green Hills Software speakers will present:

Writing Reliable C/C++ Code
When: Tuesday, September 22, 2009 3:30pm — 4:45pm
Where: Hynes Convention Center, Boston, MA, room 207, Security track
Who: Greg Davis, Director of Engineering, Compilers, Green Hills Software
Synopsis: Compile-time checking in C and C++ can catch many sources of errors, but there are numerous errors that may cause run-time failures. Many of these failures are unlikely to show up during product testing, and will only show up, later, as costly product glitches. This session describes the top sources of run-time errors, and how to avoid them in order to write reliable code.

Multi-core and Virtualization: Embedded Synergy
When: Thursday, September 24, 2009 9:25am — 10:35am
Where: Hynes Convention Center, Boston, MA, room 104, Track: Multi-core, Multi-threading, and
Who: David Kleidermacher, Chief Technology Officer, Green Hills Software
Synopsis: Fostered by the latest embedded multicore processors with virtualization hardware support, a new generation of hypervisor technology is rapidly making its way into a wide range of electronic products. Embedded virtualization has specialized requirements, involving footprint constraints, power efficiency, and reliability. This session will introduce and compare hypervisor implementations across the most popular multi-core processors, including ARM® Cortex™, Intel® Atom™, and Freescale™ PowerPC™, and explain how this exciting technology can be practically applied to enable compelling new capabilities across a wide range of industries and embedded applications.

Green Hills Software will offer, in booth #409, a wide range of interesting presentations and demonstrations, including:

  • Platform for Secure Networking – a comprehensive platform based on the certified secure INTEGRITY® RTOS and consisting of secure virtualization, advanced file systems, dual TCP/IP v4/v6 host and routing stack, web server, SSH, SSL, IPSec, wireless communications and security software, Layer 3 routing and management software, USB, and development tools that enable developers to create secure, powerful, high-throughput connected devices with maximum availability in the least time and at the lowest cost. This Platform will be demonstrated on a Fulcrum Microsystems “Reno” reference platform.
  • Platform for Medical Devices – incorporates the safety-certified INTEGRITY real-time operating system, a broad range of middleware including communications protocols and graphics, secure virtualization, and an integrated tool suite that addresses software developers' needs throughout the medical device software development process. INTEGRITY is available with complete software lifecycle data and supporting evidence for use during the FDA approval process, and has been used in Class II and Class III devices. This platform will be demonstrated on the Texas Instruments Zoom™ OMAP35x development kit.
  • Multicore Development Solutions – comprehensive operating system support and development tools for deploying multicore systems. INTEGRITY will be demonstrated configured for both Asymmetric Multi Processing (AMP) and Symmetric Multi Processing (SMP) modes along with tools that encompass all modes of multicore development. These products will be demonstrated on the Embedded Planet EP8572A development platform featuring a dual core Freescale MPC8572 processor.
  • Intel Architecture JTAG debugging - INTEGRITY will be demonstrated with the Green Hills probe JTAG debugging interface on the Intel D945GCLF2 development system featuring the Intel® Atom™ processor 330. The Intel® Atom™ processor 300 series enables a new class of simple and affordable internet-centric computers called “nettops” that is best suited for applications focused on internet usage models—communicate, listen, watch, play, share, and learn.
