Tags: amd

altAMD annuncia la collaborazione con Green Hills Software, il maggiore fornitore indipendente di software embedded, che porterà INTEGRITY, il suo sistema operativo in real time (RTOS) leader nel settore, all’interno delle unità di elaborazione accelerata (APU) AMD Embedded G-Series. L’unione del sistema operativo INTEGRITY e delle APU Embedded G-Series permette la creazione di un sistema di calcolo embedded ad alte prestazioni, affidabile e sicuro, adatto all’impiego in un’ampia gamma di applicazioni, tra le quali i sistemi di controllo per l’industria e altri utilizzi in ambito consumer, networking, militare/aerospaziale e medicale.

INTEGRITY RTOS, con la sua release v10.0.2 SMP, supporta le CPU multicore basate su architettura x86 integrate nelle APU Embedded G-Series di AMD. Le APU Embedded G-Series di AMD sono caratterizzate da un’avanzata CPU multicore x86 e da una GPU di livello discreto in grado di supportare le librerie DirectX® 11, tutto all’interno di un singolo chip: questa specifica famiglia di APU è stata espressamente creata per rispondere alle esigenze dei sistemi embedded, molti dei quali richiedono la precisione e i tempi deterministici di un sistema operativo in tempo reale.

Di seguito la notizia in dettaglio:

DESIGN WEST, San Jose, Calif. — March 28, 2012 — AMD (NYSE: AMD) today announced a collaboration with Green Hills Software, the largest independent vendor of embedded software, that brings its industry-leading INTEGRITY real-time operating system (RTOS) to the AMD Embedded G-Series Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) platform. The combination of INTEGRITY RTOS with the AMD Embedded G-Series APU creates a high performance, reliable and secure embedded computing solution for use across a range of applications including industrial control systems, consumer, networking, military/aerospace and medical.

The INTEGRITY RTOS offers support for multi-core x86 CPUs in the AMD Embedded G-Series APU with its v10.0.2 SMP release. The AMD Embedded G-Series APU offers an advanced, low-power, multi-core x86 CPU and a discrete-class DirectX® 11-capable GPU on a single chip. This specific family of APUs was created expressly for the requirements of embedded systems, many of which require the precise, deterministic timing of an RTOS.

“Reliability, security, and certifications are critical requirements in the embedded market. Green Hills has a long and successful track record in these areas and can not only deliver these critical requirements, but can also provide a large ecosystem of technology collaborations that can help bring a complete software platform solution to our customers, enabling reduced time-to-market,” said Buddy Broeker, director, Embedded Solutions, AMD. “The AMD Embedded G-Series APUs and INTEGRITY are a winning combination for our customers in highly regulated markets such as industrial, military/aerospace and medical devices.”

“The INTEGRITY board support package for the AMD Embedded G-Series APU supports the AMD DB-FT1 Development Board and will enable AMD customers to build a strong software foundation based on market proven Green Hills technology,” says Chris Smith, vice president of marketing at Green Hills Software. “With its advanced separation kernel architecture, INTEGRITY has achieved numerous certifications for industry safety and security standards, leading to its widespread adoption in the embedded market.”

INTEGRITY is Green Hills Software's flagship real-time operating system that has been successfully deployed in a wide range of end-customer products where safety and reliability are paramount. The success of INTEGRITY is due to its advanced technological design, incorporating memory protection, resource availability, secure remote management, and hard real-time deterministic response. INTEGRITY technology is certified to numerous safety standards including IEC 61508 (SIL 3) and EN 50128 CENELEC (SWSIL 4), in addition to the highest Common Criteria (IEC 15408) security level ever achieved for any commercial operation system – EAL6+, High Robustness.
