BALTIMORE, 11 Nov. 2011. Green Hills Software in Santa Barbara, Calif., and Curtiss-Wright Controls Embedded Computing in Ashburn, Va., are joining hands to provide support for the Green Hills Integrity multivisor software support for the Curtiss-Wright SVME/DMV-186 and VPX6-187 single board computers. The companies made the announcement this week at the AFCEA MILCOM conference and trade show in Baltimore, which highlights technologies in military communications and embedded computing.Integrity is the Green Hills real-time software operating system for high-performance embedded computing application. Integrity Multivisor is a multicore, microkernel-based Type-1 hypervisor, which provides the software foundation for safe and secure consolidation and separation of disparate real-time critical, safety-critical, and security-critical applications running alongside potentially untrusted guest operating system environments, Green Hills officials say.Curtiss-Wright's SVME/DMV-186 and VPX6-187 computer boards have the eight-core Freescale QorIQ P4080 processor, and are for size-, weight-, and power- (SWaP) constrained applications. Initial support is for Freescale Linux as a guest operating system.

Multivisor can help preserve legacy software infrastructure by enabling migration of legacy applications from outdated hardware into compartmentalized virtual machines.
