HARDWARE TOOLS: Green Hills releases newest multicore debugging probe

TechOnline India - August 19, 2009

SMP Operating System Debug Features and Support for Latest Microprocessors added to its Probe family.

Santa Barbara, Ca. - Green Hills Software, has just made available a new firmware release of its Green Hills Probe hardware-assisted microprocessor debugging solution.

Used in combination with its MULTI software development environment, the probe is designed to allow software developers to gain the control and visibility required to perform board bring-up, device driver development, and other system debugging tasks in the least amount of time and with the lowest development cost.

This release of the Green Hills Probe provides support for symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) operating systems, such as Green Hills Software's INTEGRITY real-time operating system.

It makes this possible by providing synchronized multi-core run-control, inter-core cache coherency features, and intelligent inter-core breakpoint management. Application and device driver developers will be able to find and fix bugs faster, resulting in faster time-to-market for end products.

The release adds support for the latest 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.
