Green Hills' INTEGRITY RTOS Supports Freescale's PowerQUICC III

4/27/2004 - Green Hills Software, Inc., the market leader in royalty-free real-time operating systems (RTOS), announced that the INTEGRITY RTOS is available for the PowerQUICC III MPC8560 and MPC8540 integrated communications processors from Freescale Semiconductor, a wholly owned subsidiary of Motorola Inc. Software developers can now develop and deploy their networking and communications applications with a total solution based on a royalty-free, memory protected RTOS integrated with the industry leading MULTI integrated development environment (IDE) and optimizing C/C++ compilers.

The PowerQUICC III integrated communications processors alleviate bottlenecks by combining a high-performance processor core with high-performance I/O. The PowerQUICC III employs a host of leading industry standards and innovative Freescale technologies including the high-performance e500 core that implements the PowerPC Book E architecture, RapidIO interconnect technology, Freescale's OCeaN crossbar switch fabric, dual gigabit Ethernet interfaces, double data rate SDRAM and 64-bit PCI-X/PCI interface controllers.

The INTEGRITY RTOS enhances reliability and real-time determinism by never disabling interrupts during any system call, while providing applications guaranteed access to the CPU and memory for critical tasks. The INTEGRITY RTOS prevents errant or malicious code from corrupting user and kernel objects. Other RTOS solutions do not offer this protection or security, leaving systems vulnerable to failure from errant application code, viruses and hackers.

Green Hills Software's development solution for the Freescale PowerQUICC III MPC8560 and MPC8540 integrated communications processors includes:

"Many customers are selecting Green Hills Software's advanced royalty-free software solutions for their next-generation networking and telecom products," said Dan Mender, INTEGRITY's director of business development at Green Hills Software. "The combination of INTEGRITY with the PowerQUICC III processor is key to addressing the demanding requirements for total off-the-shelf solutions in today's networking marketplace."
