Green Hills Software Inc.

today announced availability of its software development solution targeting

Applied Micro Circuit Corp.’s (AMCC)

PowerPC 405EX and 405EXr embedded processors.

Components of the Green Hills Software development toolkit include: optimizing C/C++ compilers for Power Architecture, Multi integrated development environment (IDE), virtual prototyping platform, DoubleCheck static analyzer, and high-speed hardware debug probes.

“Using Green Hills Software’s professional tools and services, AMCC customers are able to maximize performance and reliability while minimizing time-to-market and product unit cost,” says Charlie Ashton, director of software at AMCC.

“With the PowerPC 405EX and 405EXr, AMCC continues to push the state of the art in flexible and high performance I/O while meeting the stringent power requirements for next generation wireless and wired embedded networking equipment,” adds David Kleidermacher, chief technology officer, Green Hills Software. “To top it off, these processors’ comprehensive integrated cryptographic acceleration features enable developers to achieve their target performance efficiency without compromising security.”

The Green Hills says its solution for the PowerPC 405EX and 405Exr consists of the following components:

 

 

 

 

The companies say PPC405EX and PPC405EXr combine the proven performance of the market leading PPC405 processor with a high-performance suite of peripheral and memory interfaces, including PCI Express, USB2.0 On-the-Go, DDR 2/1 and Gigabit Ethernet. The PPC405EX and PPC405EXr have an advanced security engine, featuring header/trailer processing capability and support for security protocols, including IPSec, SSL, and DTLS, the companies say, adding that the processors are ideally suited for next-generation WLAN, Residential Gateway, and IP-STB applications that require exceptional performance, small footprint and low power.

Founded in 1982, Green Hills Software provides device software optimization (DSO) and real-time operating systems (RTOS) for 32- and 64-bit embedded systems, with a variety of royalty-free tools.

AMCC provides semiconductor solutions to process, transport, and store digital information for the world's wired and wireless networks.
