Green Hills Software provides optimized tools for AppliedMicro PacketPro2 Processors

SANTA BARBARA, CA and SUNNYVALE, CA — September 5, 2012 — Green Hills Software, the largest independent vendor of embedded software solutions, today announced its collaboration with AppliedMicro®, a global leader in energy conscious computing and communications solutions for data center, telecom, enterprise and consumer applications, for the development of the best-of-class solution for AppliedMicro's PacketPro2™ family of single and multicore secure processors for enterprise networking, control plane and industrial applications. Green Hills Software's MULTI® multicore debugger, optimizing compiler, and processor probes will target the Keelback and Black Mamba PacketPro2 processors.

Today's embedded systems developers are increasingly looking to satisfy complex network security and mission-critical requirements together with lower power consumption in high-performance systems. The AppliedMicro PacketPro2 architecture provides advanced hardware offloads, traffic classification, policing and rate shaping, inline and look-aside security, and a cryptographic boundary. These features support the delivery of the industry's most advanced capabilities in security, energy-efficiency, system throughput, and reliability.

AppliedMicro PacketPro2 family supported by Green Hills Software's optimizing tool chain and debugger allows customers to select the product that matches their specific requirements. The PacketPro2 family will extend from single core to multicore with multi-layered encryption and authentication capabilities. Developers require a correspondingly reliable and highly capable set of development tools.

"AppliedMicro PacketPro2 single and dual-core processors' advanced security and power management features address mission-critical applications across multiple market segments," said Majid Bemanian, senior director of marketing, embedded processing for the AppliedMicro Computing Business Unit. "Our collaboration with Green Hills Software allows us to provide our industrial and networking customers with an optimized development suite that emphasizes the strengths of our new PacketPro2 processor family and meets our customers' requirements."

"By leveraging our longtime collaboration with AppliedMicro, Green Hills Software continues to advance its platform offerings to address the demands of the networking industry for today and tomorrow," commented Tim Reed, vice president, Advanced Products Group, Green Hills Software. "Through our ongoing cooperation, we again bring unparalleled performance, reliability, and advanced debugging capabilities to AppliedMicro's newest networking processors."

Optimized for Performance and Small Code Size
The longtime collaboration between AppliedMicro and Green Hills Software has produced industry-leading optimizing compilers that offer tailored optimization for the PacketPro2 family of processors. The Green Hills Software tools employ thousands of processor-independent and processor-dependent optimizations, including advanced techniques such as an advanced dual-issue pipeline scheduler, inter-procedural optimizations, link-time automatic addressing mode optimization and code factoring. The result is technology that generates the fastest and smallest code for the PacketPro2 family.

Complete Integrated Development Environment
The Green Hills MULTI integrated development environment (IDE) leverages 30 years of embedded software development expertise to provide developers an integrated package of tools they need to create reliable software efficiently.

The MULTI IDE for AppliedMicro's PacketPro2 family offers integrated development, debug and programming tools; performance profiler; project builder; code coverage; run-time error checking; MISRA C adherence wizard; DoubleCheck™ integrated static code analyzer; and the Green Hills JTAG Probe.
