M-Systems, Green Hills Debut DiskOnChip Driver for INTEGRITY, velOSity

10/14/2004 - M-Systems (Nasdaq: FLSH) and Green Hills Software, Inc., the market leader in embedded software development tools and royalty-free real-time operating systems (RTOS), announced the availability of a driver that supports the DiskOnChip flash disk for the INTEGRITY RTOS and velOSity microkernel.

Developed for the latest version of M-Systems' TrueFFS flash file system (6.2.1), this driver has been adapted by the companies to satisfy the integration needs of embedded computers in telecommunications, defense, automotive, networking and medical equipment along with many other industries, and most recently for a Bluetooth-powered in-car electronics system developed by PEIKER acustic, Inc.

"Our successful integration and support for DiskOnChip, the embedded industry's leading on-board storage choice, is an important addition to the existing embedded services available today for the INTEGRITY RTOS and velOSity microkernel," said Dan Mender, director of INTEGRITY business development, Green Hills Software. "It is good to see this integration of our products now widely available to our mutual customers."

"By working together, M-Systems and Green Hills Software are able to offer high performance, high reliability and cost savings to customers," said Ofer Tsur, vice president of marketing for M-Systems' embedded products division. "Gaining support for DiskOnChip for INTEGRITY and velOSity is good for M-Systems and its customers -- Green Hills Software is definitely gaining ground as a leading RTOS provider within the market."

The INTEGRITY RTOS, certified to POSIX 1003.1 System Interfaces, provides embedded applications with total reliability and absolute security. The INTEGRITY RTOS is securely partitioned, guaranteeing each task the resources it needs to run correctly along with fully protecting the operating system and user tasks from errant and malicious code, including denial of service attacks, hackers, worms and Trojan horses.

The INTEGRITY RTOS is built on Green Hills Software's small and fast velOSity microkernel. Both products share a rich set of device drivers, Board Support Packages and middleware, including IPv4, IPv6, IPsec, SSL, SSH, Web server, CORBA and graphics. The ability to migrate seamlessly between the velOSity microkernel and the INTEGRITY RTOS provides embedded software developers with unprecedented scalability.
