SANTA BARBARA, Calif., 14 Dec. 2006. Green Hills Software Inc., maker of device software optimization (DSO) and real-time operating systems (RTOS), has announced the 10th anniversary edition of its Integrity real-time operating system (RTOS). The product of more than two years of development, Integrity 10 includes features that address the demanding performance and reliability requirements of next-generation complex devices.

Integrity 10 supports Symmetric Multiprocessing (SMP) wherein the operating system will automatically load-balance applications across multiple cores on SMP-capable processors, such as the Freescale Power Architecture-based 8641D. SMP support enables developers to realize the performance potential of multicore architectures while maximizing software reuse.

Integrity 10 also supports Non-Uniform Memory Architecture (NUMA) systems in which applications are intelligently allocated and distributed across multiple cores that have their own fast local memory. In addition to multicore processing, Integrity 10 improves performance with a significant boost in system call execution time.

Integrity 10 includes a new debug agent that enables debugging of application programs with minimal real-time overhead, improved performance, and unprecedented control and flexibility. In addition, the new debug agent provides a performance boost for on-target event logging used by the MULTI EventAnalyzer. The EventAnalyzer provides a graphical view of system behavior, including context switches, interrupts, system calls, and interprocess communication, and is used by developers for performance tuning and to find difficult bugs.

Integrity 10 is integrated with version 5 of the MULTI IDE and includes a new project manager that makes the creation and management of complex, multi-process systems easy and intuitive. Also included are new kernel awareness debugging features that provide increased visibility into kernel object state during application development.

Integrity 10 has several security features, including a memory resource lending capability for the secure and efficient distribution and revocation of resources, and a new "pure virtual" device driver model that enhances Integrity's driver architecture to maximize system reliability.

Integrity 10th anniversary edition will be available in Q1 2007.
