Green Hills Software announced the availability of its Compiler 2018.1 for creating highly optimized 32-bit and 64-bit embedded C and C++ software applications for all leading embedded processor architectures, including Arm, Intel and Power Architecture. Key global customers and Green Hills compiler architects engaged on focused performance projects and as a result, customers see 3x faster vector processing speeds, and scores beating the LLVM Compiler even on LLVM’s own benchmark suite. Other highlights of Compiler 2018.1 include full C++14 support, Spectre mitigations and support for the highest functional safety levels. Compiler 2018.1 enables customers to bring their products to market more quickly, meet safety and security requirements and extract maximum processor performance in all embedded markets including automotive, industrial control, high performance computing, digital storage and consumer products.
Compiler 2018.1 is the only safety-qualified compiler with autovectorization to accelerate vector processing for SIMD (Single Instruction Multiple Data) acceleration units on Arm/Arm64 NEON, Intel SSE and Power Architecture. Green Hills C/C++ compilers are unique because of the breadth and depth of the certificates they have achieved for the highest levels of certified safety for Automotive (ISO 26262 ASIL D), Industrial (IEC 61508 SIL 3) and Railway (EN 50128 SIL 4).
Green Hills C/C++ Optimizing Compiler 2018.1, with the MULTI IDE is available today for Arm, Intel, Power Architecture, RH850, TriCore, MIPS and ColdFire architectures and is a vital component for developing and deploying safe and secure embedded systems based on the INTEGRITY real-time operating system and INTEGRITY Multivisor.
