SANTA BARBARA, Calif., 9 Dec. 2016. Real-time embedded computing software expert Green Hills Software in Santa Barbara, Calif., is offering secure software support for the new ARMv8-M processor architecture, featuring ARM Cortex-M23 and Cortex-M33 cores.

The Green Hills software support for the ARMv8-M is based on the company's high-performance development tools, real-time operating systems (RTOS), and defense-in-depth security services.

Green Hills ARMv8-M support builds on partnerships with ARM and processor manufacturers. Thousands of customers are using Green Hills Software's products to build and deploy devices for medical, automotive, home, and industrial applications based on ARM Cortex-M processors, as well as the Cortex-R and Cortex-A processor families, Green Hills officials say.

Today's flood of internet-enabled devices introduces an alarming number of security vulnerabilities when designers do not apply best-practices for embedded software security, Green Hills officials say.

INTEGRITY Security Services, a Green Hills Software Company, provides embedded security products and services that protect smart connected devices for all industries. They offer embedded cryptographic toolkits, TrustZone consultation, authenticated boot, key injection, software digital signing, OTA and the management of secure digital assets in complex supply chains.

Embedded applications running on Cortex-M23 and Cortex-M33 depend on efficient performance. Green Hills Optimizing C/C++ Compilers have enabled developers to reach maximum CPU performance -- as much as 35 percent faster compared to competing compilers.

Additionally, the µ-velOSity RTOS from Green Hills was designed for the resource-constrained environments addressed by Cortex-M processors and uses the smallest number of CPU clock cycles and memory, requiring only 1.6 kilobytes of ROM.

Using µ-velOSity is easy. Complete source code for the RTOS and select middleware is included, the API is simple and the MULTI integrated development environment provides easy-to-use powerful software development tools.
