Green Hills Software to Present and Exhibit at ARM TechCon3 2009

SANTA BARBARA, CA—October 13, 2009 — Green Hills Software, Inc., the largest independent vendor of embedded software solutions, will speak at the ARM TechCon3 conference in Santa Clara, CA, October 21 - 23, 2009. At booth #319 in the Santa Clara Convention Center, Green Hills Software will also demonstrate its latest embedded software solutions.

Green Hills Software will present:

Secure Virtualization under the ARM Architecture
When: Wednesday, October 21, 2009 4:00pm — 4:45pm
Where: Santa Clara Convention Center, MCU & Tools track, Room 209
Who: Dan Hettena, Sr. Architect RTOS
Synopsis: With the need for secure virtualization on ARM platforms becoming more urgent, this session will investigate some relevant use cases for secure virtualization technology in an ARM context. Following it will be an introduction of the INTEGRITY® secure virtualization architecture and focus on implementation issues related to secure virtualization solutions under the ARM architecture. Particular emphasis will be on TrustZone technology and trade-offs between paravirtualization and full virtualization.

Tips and Tricks for Debugging your ARM-based Product
When: Thursday, October 22, 2009 9:00am — 9:45am
Where: Santa Clara Convention Center, MCU & Tools track, Room 209
Who: Greg Davis, Director of Engineering, Compilers
Synopsis: Embedded developers spend the majority of their time debugging code which has already been written, often times by others. Fortunately, the debugging features built into ARM cores can make the task much easier than on many competing cores. This talk goes over a number of top techniques in how to get to the bottom of problems using a modern debugger and readily available tools. Design techniques to make debugging easier are also discussed.

ARMing Developers for Multicore
When: Friday, October 23, 2009 1:00pm — 1:45pm
Where: Santa Clara Convention Center, MCU & Tools track, Room 209
Who: David Kleidermacher, Chief Technology Officer
Synopsis: 10% of embedded systems use single chip multicore processors, with this number steadily increasing. Rapid multicore uptake has raised alarms about the perceived difficulties in developing and migrating software to new architectures, such as the Cortex A9 MP. Multicore software development ecosystem is maturing rapidly, and software developers must be trained on a new set of tools and techniques for the development, debugging, and run-time management of multicore software on ARM cores. This class will discuss the multicore software toolbox that developers must adopt to be successful, debunk the myths relating to multicore software design difficulties, and concentrate the attendee on those areas where industry investment and improvement are truly needed.

Green Hills Software will demonstrate in booth 319:

  • Virtualized Linux running alongside real-time applications on TI OMAP35x
  • Green Hills INTEGRITY security kernel running in Trust Zone with Linux running in Normal Zone on Freescale i.MX515
