Green Hills Software to Showcase Leading Military Communication Solutions for Next-Generation Device Development

Multicore Development and Runtime Environments Optimized for Industry-Leading Multicore Processors

SAN JOSE, CA – October 31, 2010 – MILCOM Conference, Booth 427 –Green Hills Software, Inc., the largest independent vendor of embedded software solutions, today announced that it will be demonstrating its leading edge integrated development suite (IDE), MULTI®, its safety and security certified INTEGRITY® real-time operating system (RTOS), its INTEGRITY Secure Visualization (ISV), and its wide portfolio of secure networking protocols on the industry’s leading multicore microprocessors. The Green Hills solutions will showcase secure networking, secure virtualization, asymmetric and symmetric processing as well as the leading OS-agnostic multicore development environment for the next generation of multicore silicon from leading silicon providers.

The theme for this year’s MILCOM is the “Next Decade of Military Communications." "It is paramount for military communication device developers to optimize their use of the unique capabilities being delivered on next-generation multicore devices in order to reduce space, weight, and power," according to John Warther, vice president for government programs, Green Hills Software. "DoD budget constraints will motivate prime contractors and system integrators to rethink how they can improve productivity across their software development organization. Green Hills Software’s IDE allows these contractors to develop, debug and optimize code for multicore processors more quickly, significantly reducing both development cost as well as shortening their certification and accreditation timeline. This directly allows organizations to improve their return on investment."

Green Hills Software’s three kiosks will focus on advanced multicore visualization and debugging, heterogeneous OS multicore debugging, secure networking, secure virtualization and asymmetric/symmetric multicore processing. All kiosks will demonstrate the Green Hills award-winning INTEGRITY RTOS as the runtime environment foundation. The Green Hills INTEGRITY-178B RTOS is the first operating system technology certified by NIAP (National Information Assurance Partnership comprised of NSA & NIST) to EAL6+, High Robustness, the highest Common Criteria security level ever achieved for a software product. Only an EAL6+, High Robustness operating system is certified to protect high value assets from sophisticated attackers.

Asymmetric/Symmetric Processing
Green Hills will showcase the INTEGRITY RTOS running on Freescale Semiconductor’s Power Architecture® QorIQ™ processors providing solutions for environments requiring reduced size, weight and power. Multicore SoC processors provide performance within the embedded power environment while giving the user the ability to create partitioned applications in a secure environment that also meet the rigorous Certification & Accreditation (C&A) requirements when utilized with the Green Hills INTEGRITY operating system.

Secure Networking
Green Hills Software will showcase a Cavium OCTEON® cnMIPS64 multicore board running the Cavium Simple Executive and the Green Hills INTEGRITY real-time operating system. Cavium processors enable next-generation routing and switching capability in tactical environments where data has to be securely maintained and transmitted among airborne, seaborne and terrestrial assets. The demo highlights the INTEGRITY operating system managing communications processing, enabling real-time critical interoperability of military communication devices.

Secure Virtualization
Green Hills Software will showcase INTEGRITY Secure Virtualization (ISV) highlighting multi-domain connectivity at different classification levels in a tactical environment. In the demonstration, multiple separate client computers are replaced by one dedicated machine for all classification levels. The INTEGRITY partitioned RTOS running ISV consolidates multiple systems onto a single physical device, allowing simultaneous support for applications running on Windows XP and Linux, with hard real-time and security-critical applications running independently on INTEGRITY.
