Green Hills Software announced that it has working prototypes for the Arm® Cortex-A78AE core, establishing a clear path for early adopters of the core. Leading the offering is the INTEGRITY® real-time operating system (RTOS) and C/C++ development tools as a certified safe and secure software foundation for SoC manufacturers and end-customers. The Cortex-A78AE core is specifically designed for complex and mission-critical functions in automated driving and critical industrial systems.
The amount of software controlling critical systems is rising in use, while consolidated from smaller processors onto more centralized high-performance units. The next generation of these systems will incorporate the Cortex-A78AE core. Green Hills is working with Arm and early adopters to optimize the core’s strengths.
The Cortex-A78AE provides the ability to run different, complex workloads for autonomous applications such as mobile robotics and driverless transportation. It delivers a 30% performance uplift over its predecessor and supports features to achieve the relevant automotive and industrial functional safety standards, ISO 26262 and IEC 61508 for applications up to ASIL D/SIL 3.
INTEGRITY secure virtualization enables running multiple guest operating systems such as Linux in certified secure partitions. For development, the MULTI® debugger enables unified debugging and analysis across multiple cores on complex Cortex-A78AE-based SoCs and executes programs forward or backward in time.
Prototypes of Green Hills products including INTEGRITY, MULTI and the Green Hills Probe, are available today on the Arm Neoverse N1 SDP board.
