Arm and Green Hills Software collaborate on functional safety design
Software and tools by Green Hills are now part of Arm’s Functional Safety Partnership Program, announced at Arm TechCon 2019.
The software company has supported the Arm architecture since 1997 for safety-critical embedded systems for automobiles, building security, aircraft, surgical devices and industrial machinery.
Arm helps its customers enable functional safety on next-generation SoCs through a range of IP, design tools, support and involvement with international safety organisations. Arm’s Functional Safety Partnership Program promotes proven partners such as Green Hills Software in the categories of Software and Tools, Design Services and Training Services.
Green Hills provides safety-certified real-time operating system (RTOS) for critical embedded applications. The Integrity and Integrity-178 tuMP RTOS with secure Multivisor hypervisor technology and Multi C/C++ compilers and run-time libraries have achieved certification for avionics (RTCA/DO-178B/C Level A), automotive (ISO 26262 ASIL D), industrial (IEC 61508 SIL 3) and railway (EN 50128 SIL 4).
Founded in 1982, Green Hills Software specialises in embedded safety and security. In 2008, the Green Hills Integrity-178 RTOS was the first and only operating system to be certified by NIAP (National Information Assurance Partnership comprised of NSA and NIST) to EAL 6+, High Robustness, the highest level of security ever achieved for any software product. The open architecture integrated development solutions address deeply embedded, absolute security and high-reliability applications for the military/avionics, medical, industrial, automotive, networking, consumer and other markets that demand industry-certified solutions, says Green Hills.
The company is headquartered in Santa Barbara, California, USA and has its European headquarters in the United Kingdom.
