Green Hills adds AUTOSAR to INTEGRITY RTOS
At the SAE Convergence 2012 in Detroit, Mich., this week Green Hills Software made available a compliant AUTOSAR (AUTomotive Open System ARchitecture) Application Programming Interface (API) for its INTEGRITY real-time operating system (RTOS).
According to Dan Mender, vice president of business development, Green Hills Software, the availability of the new AUTOSAR API for Green Hills Software’s safety- and security-certified INTEGRITY RTOS – combined with the existing rich set of standard APIs for OSEK and POSIX – provides automobile manufacturers a clear path to address the growing dilemma of ECU (Electronic Control Unit) bloat facing vehicles today.
The Green Hills AUTOSAR support is an extension to a recent announcement of the Green Hills MULTI tool chain as the industry’s first tool chain qualified to the stringent ISO 26262 standard for use at the highest Automotive Safety Integrity Level, ASIL D.
This compliant AUTOSAR API has been integrated and tested with industry-leading providers of AUTOSAR development tools and target processor MCAL layers (Microcontroller Abstraction Layer), and provides seamless incorporation of AUTOSAR applications on INTEGRITY-based platforms.
