Green Hills Software Delivers Industry's Most Advanced, Broadest Vendor AUTOSAR Support on INTEGRITY RTOS

Unmatched Freedom From Interference, Seamless AUTOSAR Vendor Integration Enables Advancements in Automotive ECU Consolidation

DETROIT, MI — October 22, 2014 — SAE Convergence, Booth 327 & AUTOSAR Open Conference— Green Hills Software, the largest independent software vendor for the Internet of Things, today announced the availability of the industry's most advanced integration and broadest AUTOSAR vendor support for AUTOSAR application development, debug, execution and deployment. Green Hills Software's unique approach for advancing the use and deployment of AUTOSAR in automotive electronics is based on the embedded industry's safest real-time operating system, INTEGRITY®.

There is a broad and growing adoption for the use of AUTOSAR in automotive electronics. The automotive processors targeted for executing AUTOSAR applications and services are more complex and more powerful than previously used. With this comes an increasing challenge to manage application complexity, debuggability and function freedom from interference.

Green Hills Software's unique approach to supporting the development and use of AUTOSAR in automotive electronics delivers the industry's only AUTOSAR and processor vendor neutral solution for combining legacy OSEK, legacy AUTOSAR and/or new AUTOSAR applications and services safely and reliably into a single ECU.

With this approach, customers continue to use their favorite AUTOSAR vendor solutions. Green Hills has developed an integration with AUTOSAR development and run-time environments that deliver safe separation, debug and execution of AUTOSAR applications while safely combining AUTOSAR applications at different Automotive Safety Integrity Levels (ASIL) and even from different AUTOSAR vendors. This approach provides independent and complete memory and time protection while being able to safely combine multiple Scalability Class 1 (SC1) applications onto a single ECU. All of this is made possible by taking advantage of the Green Hills INTEGRITY operating system's field-proven freedom from interference guarantees.

Green Hills Software's support for the OSEK/AUTOSAR application build and execution includes the following major components:

  • INTEGRITY separation kernel for applications demanding safety, reliability and security
  • MULTI® integrated development environment featuring multicore debugger, profiler and many other integrated time-saving tools
  • AUTOSAR vendor integration components for INTEGRITY and MULTI
  • Software and services compliant to the highest levels of automotive and industrial safety standards including ISO 26262, IEC 61508 and EN 50128
  • High-performance EEMBC® record-setting C/C++ compilers and complete tool chain that leverage the Neon media processing engine and floating point units
  • Integrated code quality tools including MISRA C/C++ and DoubleCheck™ static analyzer
  • Multicore run-control, board bring-up, low-level debugging and real-time trace debugging with the Green Hills Probe and SuperTrace™ Probe

"With this approach to next-generation AUTOSAR-based ECU design and development, Green Hills continues its leadership in enabling the automotive OEMs and Tier 1s to develop the most sophisticated, safe and reliable automotive electronics without compromise," said Dan Mender, vice-president of business development at Green Hills Software. "This is accomplished by Green Hills bringing over a decade of experience helping our customers design and deploy the industry's most critical system electronics in the world."

Green Hills Software products and services for the AUTOSAR application development and execution are available today.
