SANTA BARBARA, Calif., 18 Aug. 2009. Green Hills Software in Santa Barbara, Calif., is announcing the firmware software development tools release of the Green Hills Probe hardware-assisted microprocessor debugging solution.

The Green Hills Probe works together with the company's Multi software development environment to enable software developers to gain the control and visibility required to perform board bring-up, device driver development, and other system debugging tasks.

This release provides support for symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) operating systems, such as Green Hills Software's Integrity real time operating system (RTOS). Probe provides synchronized multi-core run-control, inter-core cache coherency features, and intelligent inter-core breakpoint management.

The release adds support for microprocessors including ARM Cortex A8-based processors -- such as the Texas Instruments OMAP 3530 and Freescale i.MX515, the dual core Freescale MPC8641D, and a major overhaul of ColdFire support, including the MCF5222x, MCF225x, and MCF227x processors.
