Green Hills Software to Present and Exhibit at the ARM TechCon 2013 in Santa Clara, CA

SANTA BARBARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 10/22/13 -- Green Hills Software, the largest independent vendor of embedded software solutions and most trusted supplier of embedded and mobile virtualization solutions, will deliver several technology presentations and demonstrate its latest technology at ARM TechCon, October 29 - October 31, 2013, at the Santa Clara Convention Center, CA, booth #512. For more information on Green Hills Software's presence at ARM TechCon, visit: http://www.ghs.com/events/ARMTechCon_2013.html.

Green Hills Software presentations include:

Topic: Writing Reliable Multicore Code
Where:
Grand Ballroom E
When: Tuesday, October 29, 2013, 2:30 PM - 3:20 PM
Who: Greg Davis, Director of Engineering, Compilers, Green Hills Software
Synopsis: The multicore environment, with its cutting-edge hardware and concurrent threads, adds another dimension to the development challenge, creating many more ways for code to fail. Many of these failures don't show up during product testing but later, as costly product glitches. This session describes the top sources of runtime errors in multicore systems and how to avoid them with reliable code.

Topic: The Future of Android Security
Where:
Ballroom G
When: Wednesday, October 30, 2013, 10:30 AM - 11:20 AM
Who: Jon Korecki, Executive Director, Strategic Development for Cybersecurity and Information Assurance, ViaSat; and
David Kleidermacher, CTO, Green Hills Software
Synopsis: The global enterprise Android mobility market is growing rapidly, yet Android security solutions are in their infancy. This session discusses emerging technologies to address secure boot, data-at-rest and in-transit encryption, user authentication, and dual persona (BYOD/EOD) in an Android environment that has proven fertile to hackers. Session will also include discussion of the U.S. Government initiatives to build an ultra-secure smartphone using commercial off-the-shelf technology.

Topic: Real-time System Design - Practical Advice for Best Practices
Where:
Ballroom G
When: Wednesday, October 30, 2013, 11:30 AM - 12:20 PM
Who: Mike Connors, Senior Field Applications Engineer, Green Hills Software
Synopsis: Achieving guaranteed deterministic real-time behavior along with uncompromising system availability and security in your embedded product can be fraught with errors unless you incorporate proven design practices built on proven products architected for the task. This presentation will discuss real-world examples and best practices to apply when designing embedded systems that must achieve bounded, deterministic real-time response, maximum system performance, smallest footprint and certifiable security and safety.

Topic: Advancements for Simplifying Multicore SoC-based Product Development and Debugging
Where:
Ballroom G
When: Wednesday, October 30, 2013, 1:30 PM - 2:20 PM
Who: Mike Ahrens, Senior Field Applications Engineer, Green Hills Software
Synopsis: Most new product developments will use some form of multicore SoC. Engineers using the right embedded development software solutions are able to take full advantage of the performance and features these next-generation SoCs offer or inevitably face a difficult, time-consuming design and debug experience. This presentation and accompanying demonstration will show how multicore-ready operating systems, IDEs and hardware probes deliver advanced, intuitive, easy-to-use embedded software debug capabilities.

Topic: Invaluable ARM CoreSight Debug and Trace Techniques
Where:
Ballroom G
When: Wednesday, October 30, 2013, 2:30 PM - 3:20 PM
Who: Andrea Carignano, Global Design, bioMérieux; and
Eric Nixon, Senior Field Applications Engineer, Green Hills Software
Synopsis: Typical embedded hardware, device driver and application software debug techniques can be cumbersome to use, slow to respond, and non-intuitive in their design. This presentation and accompanying demonstration will show how one of the world's leading in vitro medical diagnostic solutions companies, bioMérieux, took advantage of ARM's CoreSight™ on-chip debug and trace IP and the Green Hills TimeMachine™ debugger to enable powerful, non-intrusive visual debugging to find and fix bugs faster, tune and optimize with ease, and enable comprehensive testing of high-rate CAN field bus communications.

Topic: SCLinux: Safety Critical Linux for ARM
Where:
Ballroom G
When: Wednesday, October 30, 2013, 3:30 PM - 4:20 PM
Who: David Kleidermacher, CTO, Green Hills Software
Synopsis: Traditional approaches to incorporating Linux into hard real-time, safety, and/or security-critical systems lack strong isolation of critical workloads and require prohibitively expensive modifications to Linux itself. This talk will explain how new ARM architecture hardware features enable Linux to be used in safety-critical designs, meeting stringent development cost, safety certification, and performance requirements.

Topic: Advanced Compiler Optimizations for the Smallest, Fastest Code
Where:
Grand Ballroom E
When: Thursday, October 31, 2013, 10:30 AM - 11:20 AM
Who: Greg Davis, Director of Engineering, Compilers, Green Hills Software
Synopsis: Understanding the compilation process is crucial to generating the tightest code from your source code. Compiler technology has not yet run its course, and new cutting-edge optimizations have made enormous savings in execution and code size. This talk surveys a few of my favorite optimizations: some are old but highly effective, others are virtually unknown outside the close community of compiler developers. All of them, in my opinion, are fascinating.

Topic: Writing Secure and Reliable C/C++ Code
Where:
Grand Ballroom F
When: Thursday, October 31, 2013, 11:30 AM - 12:20 PM
Who: Greg Davis, Director of Engineering, Compilers, Green Hills Software
Synopsis: Compile-time checking in C and C++ and static analysis can catch many sources of errors, but many of the errors that cause runtime failures don't show up during product testing -- they appear later as costly product glitches. This session describes the top sources of runtime errors and how to write secure and reliable code that avoids them.

In booth #512, Green Hills Software will showcase:
INTEGRITY Secure Smartphone - Trusted Mobile Device
INTEGRITY® Secure Smartphone - Trusted Mobile Device (INTEGRITY-TMD) technology delivers a revolutionary security foundation for trusted mobile platforms. This commercially available standard platform features the industry-leading INTEGRITY Multivisor™ virtualization technology, running on Samsung smartphones and tablets. INTEGRITY-TMD platform securely separates one or more Android open application environments with safe device, network, and storage access as well as trusted device management -- providing a rich Android experience in a safe, reliable manner for commercial, government and enterprise use.

High Performance Virtualization on OMAP 5 Processors
Android is being considered for adoption in a multitude of new embedded applications, but it is not without its challenges. Slow boot times, security vulnerabilities, and an inability to support real-time applications are common problems that must be addressed to deploy successful Android-based systems. Green Hills Software will demonstrate a securely virtualized Android Jelly Bean-based platform featuring the world's first ARM Virtualization Extension (VE)-enabled hypervisor, INTEGRITY Multivisor, running on a Texas Instruments (TI) OMAP™ 5 processor. The unique INTEGRITY Multivisor architecture provides hard real-time capabilities with fast boot performance for "instant on" critical functions. It supports mixed-criticality safety applications with multiple displays, while securely separating open application environments -- providing a rich Android experience in a safe, reliable manner.
