Green Hills' INTEGRITY RTOS to Power Honeywell's Process Controllers

7/17/2003 - Green Hills Software, Inc., the technology leader in real-time operating systems and embedded software, announced that Honeywell Industry Solutions has selected Green Hills Software's INTEGRITY real-time operating system (RTOS) for its next generation process controllers.

"Our customers depend on us to provide automation systems with the highest availability to control their industrial processes," said Peter Zornio, director, product marketing, Honeywell Industry Solutions. "We will rely on INTEGRITY for our next generation of highly-reliable, redundant process controllers-the heart of the automation system."

Honeywell process controllers and other automation and control solutions are used in manufacturing and processing facilities throughout the world including pulp and paper mills, refineries, power generation facilities and chemical and pharmaceutical plants.

"We are pleased INTEGRITY was selected by Honeywell for their next generation of process controllers," said Christopher Smith, vice president of marketing, Green Hills Software, Inc. "Honeywell's use of INTEGRITY will enable them to achieve the highest reliability and availability."

INTEGRITY is a small, fast, deterministic RTOS designed for applications that require total reliability, small size and real-time responsiveness. INTEGRITY provides support for distributed processor designs and offers the ability for extensive, non-intrusive field debugging and upgrading of a running system, critical to today's architectures.

INTEGRITY provides comprehensive I/O file system support, including a USB host stack, NFS client and drivers for I2C, CompactPCI and VMEbus backplanes; clocks, timers and standard PC peripherals; a full-featured UNIX-compatible, hierarchical file system and Flash file system and a POSIX API.

Comprehensive networking is provided, including such protocols as TCP/IP, a small TCP/IP stack (TCP/IP-lite), UDP, RLOGIN, BSD sockets, PPP, FTP, TFTP, DNS, DHCP, SNMP and web server. INTEGRITY also supports a full line of embedded Internet software products and applications that make it easy to add web connectivity management to target systems.

INTEGRITY with MULTI supports full run-mode and stop-mode debugging. Run-mode debugging enables developers to stop and debug one or more tasks while the remaining tasks and the kernel continue to run. This enables the running system to be debugged while continuing to process interrupts and transfer data.
