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

  • Green Hills offering for Intel® Atom™ processor E6xx series
    Green Hills Software will demonstrate complete embedded development solutions for the Intel Atom processor E6xx series. The Green Hills offering for Intel Atom processor E6xx series includes the Green Hills Probe for low-level processor run control, the MULTI® integrated development environment for advanced debugging, profiling, and analysis, and the INTEGRITY® real-time operating system for building the most secure and reliable embedded applications.

  • Green Hills offering on multicore Freescale QorIQ™ P2020 and P4080 communications processors
    The Green Hills INTEGRITY RTOS and MULTI integrated development environment (IDE) will be showcased on the multicore Freescale QorIQ P2020 and P4080 communications processors. Multicore visibility and run control will be demonstrated through various tools in the IDE including the debugger, event analyzer, and profiling tools. The INTEGRITY RTOS will be demonstrated executing in both symmetric and asymmetric multiprocessing modes (AMP and SMP).

  • Green Hills INTEGRITY Secure Virtualization on the Texas Instruments OMAP3530
    Green Hills Software will showcase INTEGRITY Secure Virtualization running on the Texas Instruments OMAP3530 processor. A Linux guest operating system and various applications will be securely hosted on the INTEGRITY RTOS alongside other real-time critical native INTEGRITY applications. Safe and secure separation between the Linux kernel and applications will be demonstrated through an attack on the Linux kernel that is isolated and contained within the virtual machine, while native INTEGRITY applications continue reliable operation. This demonstration will also include a new Wi-Fi integration via the Silex Technology SX-SDCAG 802.11a/b/g radio/baseband SDIO card with an Atheros AR6002 ROCm Chip.
