Green Hills Software and RTI Expand Partnership to Ease Integration of Mission-Critical Devices

RTI’s DDS-Compliant Middleware to Provide Enhanced Support for Green Hills Software’s INTEGRITY RTOS

SANTA BARBARA, CA and SUNNYVALE, CA – July 12, 2010 —Green Hills Software, Inc., the largest independent vendor of embedded software solutions, and Real-Time Innovations (RTI), the global leader in Data Distribution Service (DDS), today announced that they have expanded their longstanding partnership. As a result, RTI’s DDS-compliant middleware will gain optimized support for Green Hills Software’s latest release of its safety and security-certified INTEGRITY® real-time operating system (RTOS).These enhancements include advanced support for INTEGRITY RTOS capabilities, such as Symmetric Multiprocessing (SMP) and Asymmetric Multiprocessing (AMP). RTI will also offer standard release support for the INTEGRITY RTOS on a broad range of microprocessor families, including those based on Intel Architecture (Core i3, i5, i7, Atom and Xeon) and a wide range of Power Architecture® microprocessors.

RTI Data Distribution Service allows INTEGRITY users to deliver devices and systems that comply with the Object Management Group’s (OMG) DDS standard, the leading standard for real-time systems integration. A broad range of industries and programs have standardized on DDS to enable integration of heterogeneous real-time applications, including in aerospace, defense, power systems, industrial control and transportation.

DDS significantly reduces integration time and cost relative to traditional custom-built integration approaches. DDS applications communicate using the flexible publish-and-subscribe communication model. Applications simply publish the data they produce (for example, sensor data or commands) and subscribe to the data they consume. DDS middleware automatically discovers and connects publishers and subscribers at run-time. Individual applications do not require any knowledge of each other, making DDS well suited for dynamic and ad hoc systems.

"A wide range of embedded systems are now essential components of the enterprise," said Dan Mender, vice president of business development, Green Hills Software. "Consequently, they must be easy to integrate with a broad range of disparate applications without compromising the safety and security of the embedded system. RTI Data Distribution Service executing within the separation policies core to the INTEGRITY RTOS architecture makes this possible, while also giving INTEGRITY users a true ‘plug-and-play’ integration capability."

"We depend on distributed systems for everything from national defense to transportation to the power grid to medical care," commented David Barnett, RTI’s vice president of marketing. "RTI’s standards-based Data Distribution Service platform in conjunction with the proven reliability and security of Green Hills Software’s INTEGRITY RTOS provides the connectivity and robustness this critical infrastructure requires."


The INTEGRITY family of real-time operating systems includes INTEGRITY, μ-velOSity, and INTEGRITY-178B, all based on the same high-reliability, hard real-time microkernel architecture that scales from deeply embedded and mobile devices to the most safety and security-critical systems. INTEGRITY is the first and only software technology to achieve a Common Criteria EAL6+ security certification. INTEGRITY represents the most advanced RTOS technology on the market today. The INTEGRITY RTOS’ vast ecosystem of middleware, device drivers, 3rd party integrated software, and the innovative operating system-aware, integrated development environment — MULTI® — provides the ideal platform for next-generation connected devices.
