Green Hills offers RISC software tool

Engineers at Green Hills Software of Santa Barbara, Calif., are unveiling a software development tool for the Hitachi SH-4 superscalar RISC processor. The tool is based on the Green Hills Multi development environment, which consists of optimizing C and C++ compilers, an SH4 assembler and linker, and the SIM SH4 instruction set simulator. The SH-4 RISC processor, which targets embedded systems, has 64-bit data paths, peak performance of 360 million instructions per second, and 1.4 billion floati
