Santa Barbara, Calif. - Green Hills Software, Inc., has announced support for the embedded Intel Atom processor E6xx series with the INTEGRITY real-time operating system, INTEGRITY Secure Virtualization (ISV) technology, MULTI integrated development environment (IDE), optimizing C/C++ compilers, and DoubleCheck static analyzer, enabling customers to create and deploy reliable, high-performance products for in-vehicle infotainment, industrial control, automation, and a wide variety of other embedded applications.

“Intel’s 7-year life cycle commitment to providing high quality, reliable and cost effective Intel Atom platforms for the embedded marketplace is an important feature enabling developers to provide solutions across numerous market segments and products,” says Jonathan Luse, director of marketing for the Intel Low Power Embedded Products Division. “The integrated capabilities in the new Intel Atom processor E6xx series, such as Intel Hyper-Threading Technology and the PCI Express interface, enable developers to utilize the real-time capabilities of Green Hills products and deliver outstanding solutions for in-vehicle infotainment and mobile embedded devices.”

The INTEGRITY RTOS’s technology aims to achieve highest levels of security, safety, and availability for applications in transportation, industrial control, mobile, medical, aerospace, and other industries, and is the first operating system technology certified by NSA to EAL 6+, High Robustness, the only Common Criteria security level certified to protect high value assets from sophisticated attackers. INTEGRITY is the foundation for Green Hills Software’s Platform for Industrial Safety, with certification by TÜV to IEC 61508 at Safety Integrity Level 3 (SIL 3), in addition to the EN 50128 SWSIL 4 Railway Safety Certification.

With its open standards POSIX-conformant interface and ability to host general purpose operating systems such as Linux/Meego, Android, and Windows in secure virtual machines, Green Hills states the INTEGRITY RTOS can run more application software than any other operating platform, while maintaining the highest level of security, reliability and real-time determinism for critical components, algorithms, applications, and subsystems.

In addition to the INTEGRITY real-time operating system, the integrated Green Hills software development solution for the Intel Atom processor E6xx series consists of the following components:

• Comprehensive portfolio of embedded communications, file systems, and other middleware
• MULTI integrated development environment – providing the leading software development tool set for embedded software developers
• Green Hills Optimized C/C++ compilers – generating high-quality and efficient code for the Intel Architecture
• Green Hills Probe - providing powerful multicore debug control for board-bring up, device driver development and system-level debugging
