Green Hills' INTEGRITY RTOS Powers HP ProCurve Networking Solutions

10/22/2003 - Green Hills Software, Inc. announced that its INTEGRITY real-time operating system has been selected for HP ProCurve's next generation of Layer 2/3/4 switches.

"Customers trust HP ProCurve switches to support their business-critical network infrastructure," stated Christopher Smith, vice president of marketing for Green Hills Software. "INTEGRITY delivers the total reliability that communications infrastructure OEMs such as HP require in order to satisfy customers' demanding up-time requirements."

Dan O'Dowd, president of Green Hills Software, stated, "The critical network infrastructure market needs the same level of reliability that we pioneered in the aerospace market. By using INTEGRITY, communications equipment manufacturers can deliver the same ultimate level of reliability to their customers."

INTEGRITY is a fast, deterministic RTOS designed for applications that require high reliability, small size and real-time responsiveness. Utilizing the hardware memory protection facilities of the processor's MMU, INTEGRITY builds a firewall between the kernel and user tasks that prevents errant or malicious tasks from corrupting user data, the kernel, interprocess communications, device drivers and other user tasks.

INTEGRITY also enhances reliability and determinism by running with interrupts continuously enabled and guaranteeing access to the CPU and memory for critical tasks. This combination of high-reliability, fast, predictable response and royalty-free pricing makes INTEGRITY ideal for a broad range of applications that emphasize reliability, hard real-time performance and low-cost production.
