Green Hills Software and LieberLieber Software Partner for End-to-end Model-driven Approach for Embedded Systems

New Generation of Model-driven Development Through Integration of MULTI IDE and AMUSE

SANTA BARBARA, CA and NUREMBERG, GERMANY — February 26, 2013 — embedded world, Hall 4, Stand 325 — Green Hills Software, the largest independent vendor of embedded software solutions, and LieberLieber, worldwide renowned model engineering specialists on Enterprise Architect from Sparx Systems, today announced their partnership. Driven by the demand of their customers to support an end-to-end model-driven approach for embedded systems, Green Hills Software's Green Hills Software’s MULTI® integrated development environment (IDE) and LieberLieber's AMUSE (Advanced Modeling Using Simulation and Execution) will be fully integrated to provide an enhanced toolchain with new debugging and testing capabilities at the modeling level directly connected to the embedded target.

The solution combines highly optimized code generation (AMUSE) with a best-in-class compiler for embedded devices (MULTI) and landmark debugging capabilities for UML/SysML models directly on the embedded target. The MULTI IDE will enable compiling and deployment of generated C/C++ code right from the model to the respective target platform. The debugging information will be graphically visualized by AMUSE in the original modeling environment where the user can improve the model and instantly deploy the changes back on the target for re-testing. The code generation supports Class Diagrams, State Charts and Activity Diagrams and is optimized for low-end embedded devices. The innovative approach can be applied to all targets supported by the MULTI IDE.

The new toolchain will consist of the high-end MULTI IDE from Green Hills Software for embedded systems, the well-known modeling platform Enterprise Architect from Sparx Systems and the graphical UML debugger and code generator AMUSE from LieberLieber.

"We are proud to collaborate with Green Hills Software to provide a Model Engineering Solution based on Enterprise Architect for MULTI IDE customers," said Daniel Siegl, chief executive officer of LieberLieber Software.

"Today's developers want the most efficient means to produce their products, to get to market quicker and to deliver high quality products with minimal bugs. The combination of LieberLieber's AMUSE and Green Hills Software's industry-leading compilers and the MULTI IDE will provide these capabilities in a well-integrated package," explained Chris Tubbs, business development director EMEA, Green Hills Software.
