The availability of Green Hills INTEGRITY on Radstone hardware offers our end customers optimum total solutions for reliable operation of the most demanding applications in harsh environments. INTEGRITY's innovative and security orientated design is complemented by Radstone's advanced ruggedization techniques and deployed test firmware, together providing maximum operational confidence.

"We consider INTEGRITY an excellent addition to our COTS O/S support. Its proven reliable and deterministic operation is ideally suited for any mission-critical application significantly over the past 18 months and the time is ripe to formalize our relationship. This joint program will provide our end customers comprehensive INTEGRITY support across the Radstone product range," comments Andy West, Software Product Manager for Radstone's Processor Group.

"Green Hills is pleased to be partnering with a company like Radstone," said Dan Mender, INTEGRITY®'s Director of Business Development. "Combining INTEGRITY with Radstone's winning mix of products provides a perfect solution for applications which demand the ultimate in reliability."

INTEGRITY is a secure, fast, deterministic, real-time operating system for embedded applications that place a premium on reliability, real-time performance, testability, and is DO-178B level A certifiable. Utilizing a processor's memory management (MMU) facilities, INTEGRITY builds a firewall between the kernel and user tasks that prevents errant or malicious code from corrupting other user tasks or the kernel. INTEGRITY delivers maximum responsiveness and measurable determinism by running with interrupts continuously enabled and guaranteeing access to both CPU and memory resources for critical tasks.

The royalty free, high-reliability INTEGRITY Operating System is available immediately on Radstone's PowerX family, including the latest 4th generation technology insert, PPC7A. INTEGRITY for the EmPower and PowerPact families will follow before the end of the year. Green Hills Software Inc. is currently providing all BSPs. BSP's will also be available direct from Radstone by Q2/03, beyond which Rasdtone efforts will focus on added value ESP (Enhanced Support Package) features.
