Green Hills Software Demonstrates Industrial Safety and Accelerated Graphics at electronica 2014, Munich, Germany

Demonstrations Run on New Freescale QorIQ LS1021A and Popular i.MX 6 Series Processors in Freescale's Booth

SANTA BARBARA, CA — November 5, 2014 — Green Hills Software, the largest independent software vendor for the Internet of Things, today announced that it will demonstrate its software at electronica 2014, November 11 - 14, 2014, in Munich, Germany. Green Hills will demonstrate in the Freescale® booth (Hall A6 Booth 107) the following technologies:

In-Factory Crane Demonstrator
Through the collaboration of Freescale, Green Hills Software and Seavus, the three companies will demonstrate a fully functional scale model of an automated overhead crane incorporating cameras for optical sensing, positioning and collision avoidance. This industrial safety system is based on the new Freescale QorIQ® LS1021A dual ARM® Cortex®-A7 multicore communications processor. "The QorIQ LS1021A processor provides an ideal platform for machine vision applications. Its floating point unit, industrial integration features such as PWM and trust architecture provide the needed interfaces to safely and precisely control movement in applications such as the integrated crane demo," said Tareq Bustami, vice president, Digital Networking Product Management, Freescale.

Green Hills Software's INTEGRITY® real-time operating system (RTOS), fully integrated with the LS1021A processor supporting virtualization, provides maximum performance and guaranteed separation of the applications controlling the man-machine interface, motor control movement and camera detection algorithms. An HD touch screen for the GUI uses the Qt Framework, a cross-platform application and UI framework for developers. Seavus, a software development and consulting company with a proven track record in providing successful enterprise-wide business solutions, has designed and built the demonstrator, developed the algorithms using simulation, implemented them and integrated the applications on the INTEGRITY RTOS.

High Performance, Safety-Certified Digital Instrument Cluster
Green Hills Software will demonstrate a high performance digital instrument cluster based on the Freescale i.MX 6 applications processor running a safety-critical HMI. The instrument cluster's software foundation is the safety-certified INTEGRITY RTOS, which provides real-time performance combined with OpenGL graphics acceleration to enable blistering graphics performance at 70 frames per second. This platform is ideal for OEMs and Tier 1s looking to combine ISO 26262 safety certification with high performance, advanced 2D and 3D graphics.
