Green Hills Software today announced that it has added support for Intel architecture, including the Intel Atom, Core 2 Duo, and Core i7, to the Green Hills Probe.
Together with the MULTI integrated development environment (IDE), the Green Hills Probe is a versatile tool for hardware bring-up, software and firmware debugging, and product manufacturing. The Green Hills Probe for Intel architecture debuts an all-new intelligent connector system. While other probe products inflict short, unshielded, and difficult to change connectors and cables on their users, the Green Hills Probe uses a shielded, microcoaxial, impedance-controlled cable and robust connector system.
Tested up to one meter for 100 MHz JTAG operation, the cable lets users operate in flexible configurations, including tight spaces. Changing to a different debug port is as easy as plugging a new adapter onto the cable; the Green Hills Probe instantly recognizes the adapter and configures itself. Confidence LEDs on both sides of the adapter let the user know when the cable is properly connected. No other debug probe can match the Green Hills Probe's reliability, performance, and ease of use.
With download rates close to the theoretical maximum for Intel cores, Gigabit Ethernet, USB 2.0 High Speed, and a flexible electrical interface, the probe provides fast, reliable debugging and system visibility.
The Green Hills Probe supports more than one thousand processor variants from over thirty anufacturers. The Green Hills Probe for Intel Architecture is available now, with production quantities in Q4 2009.
