NXP Smarter World Tour, EMEA, connected car, IoT

PARIS, FRANCE & SANTA BARBARA, CA — January 14, 2016 — Green Hills Software, the largest independent software vendor for the Internet of Things (IoT), will be demonstrating its industry-leading security and safety solutions with NXP Semiconductors at over 100 locations in 16 European countries throughout 2016 as the exclusive Operating System and Security Sponsor for the NXP Smarter World Tour. In the 2-level articulated exhibition truck, visitors can see three live product demonstrations highlighting Green Hills Software's certified safety and security technology applied to IoT devices and the software-defined Connected Car.

Securing Devices in the IoT
The first Green Hills demo kiosk highlights the INTEGRITY® Multivisor™ virtualization platform that secures Linux and Android-based IoT devices from malware recently used in successful credit card breaches. Based on the trusted INTEGRITY real-time operating system, INTEGRITY Multivisor is a flexible software architecture that protects safety- and security-critical functions in systems running consumer operating systems like Linux, Android or Windows. The platform is an NXP i.MX 6-based point-of-sale (PoS) reference system.

The Safe & Secure Connected Car
The second demonstration shows the "freedom from interference" execution of an automotive head unit and a safety-critical graphics-rich instrument cluster, both running on the same processor. This safe and secure consolidation of mixed criticality services enables car manufacturers to seamlessly consolidate applications into the connected car while meeting demanding market-specific requirements for security, safety and real-time performance. The INTEGRITY Multivisor virtualization platform runs a native OpenVG cluster and virtualized Yocto Linux hosting the Crank Storyboard OpenGL Infotainment system on the NXP i.MX 6 automotive-grade processor.

The third demonstration is the INTEGRITY RTOS efficiently driving multiple tablets and phones with synchronized wireless audio and video, demonstrating in-cabin streaming entertainment options for passengers. The powerful Cinemo Media Engine™ is integrated and optimized for the INTEGRITY RTOS on the NXP i.MX 6.

Steve Wainwright, vice president sales and marketing EMEA, NXP, commented: "Green Hills Software has an excellent pedigree of providing software that is proven to the highest levels of security and it is now delivering this technology to help secure the Internet of Things. We are very pleased that Green Hills is participating in the NXP Smarter World Tour as the exclusive operating system and security sponsor."

Jeremy Flann, vice president EMEA sales, Green Hills Software, added: "The predicted scale of the IoT means that there will be many more edge devices vulnerable to attack. It is now more important than ever to guard against these threats at the time of development and we are looking forward to demonstrating a series of practical solutions for the many engineers who attend the Tour."
