Green Hills Software Announces Industry’s Most Comprehensive Software Solutions for NXP S32Z and S32E Automotive Processor Families


ISO 26262 ASIL-certified production-focused solutions for S32Z and S32E enable customers to build and deploy zonal/domain platforms for future vehicle architectures and EV propulsion control systems

NUREMBERG, Germany, June 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Embedded World, Hall 4 Booth 325 — Green Hills Software, the global leader in embedded safety and security, today announced plans to provide full support for NXP’s new S32Z and S32E real-time processor families.® Semiconductors to enable safe and secure mixed-criticality execution and consolidation in next-generation area and domain vehicle platforms. Green Hills Software’s expert products and services will be the industry’s most comprehensive core software offering for the S32Z and S32E processors, consisting of:

NXP and Green Hills’ combined hardware-software solution builds on three decades of successful collaboration between the companies that will enable global OEMs and Tier 1s to dramatically reduce the time and cost of developing and deploying new consolidated architectures domains and zones and vehicle control. to the highest levels of ISO 26262 and ISO/SAE 21434 security.

Emerging designs of next-generation automotive electronics must adapt to accommodate the growth and consolidation of software functionality and the increased complexity of these new architectures. OEMs and Tier 1s will need more computing performance to support these new capabilities and challenges. A major challenge is to consolidate the necessary hardware and software in a way that ensures freedom from interference for critical functions while providing uncompromising real-time performance, low cost, and extended design flexibility for future adaptations. . At the same time, advanced multi-core, multi-OS software development tools are needed to increase developer productivity while reducing the time and cost of developing and integrating millions of lines of new code. Green Hills and NXP’s combined platform targeting the S32Z and S32E meets this challenge.

“We are excited to work with Green Hills to provide our customers with a combined solution to accelerate and consolidate secure, real-time applications for emerging domain and zonal vehicle architectures,” said Ray Cornyn, Senior Vice President and General Manager Vehicle Control and Networking Solutions Business Line at NXP. “Today’s zone and domain controller ECUs need the high-performance real-time processing of S32Z and S32E real-time processors combined with a scalable, safe, and secure software offering from proven partners like Green Hills.”

“By providing extensive production-focused software solutions for NXP’s new S32Z and S32E multi-core real-time processor families, joint customers can immediately begin developing their next-generation vehicle ECUs with the highest performing, most advanced offerings. scalable and most configurable available,” said Dan Mender, Vice President, Business Development, Green Hills Software. “And with this combined hardware-software solution, time-to-market and development costs are dramatically reduced by starting with production-proven offerings.

Green Hills’ products and services provide the most comprehensive ecosystem of production-focused core software on the market, enabling customers to optimize their use of the unique combination of S32Z and S32E real-time processors combining speed in gigahertz real-time security, multi-application integration and memory expansion.

The µ-speed RTOS is a small, fast and easy-to-program, memory-efficient, real-time operating system for multi-core designs with ASIL requirements. µ-speed requires only a few kilobytes of ROM and boots quickly with minimal CPU cycles. Its ultra-low context switching time and fast kernel service calls also make it ideal for real-time automotive functions.

The µ-visor hypervisor is a thin and efficient Type 1 hypervisor designed to securely consolidate critical workloads running concurrently on the arm® Cortex®– R52 processors inside NXP S32Z and S32E processors. Its architecture leverages CPU functionality to enforce separation, manage access control, and accelerate virtual machine operations, enabling multiple operating systems such as AUTOSAR Classic, FreeRTOS, Zephyr RTOS, and µ-speed to operate effectively without any interference. µ-visor offers a variety of base planning options to meet various ECU consolidation use cases and to ensure extremely low overhead. This vendor/operating system independent virtualization decouples hardware and software, giving designers greater flexibility to add new features and reuse them on other projects.

Developers using NXP’s S32Z and S32E processors will see a significant increase in productivity by leveraging MULTI’s advanced OS-independent integrated development tools, which include Green Hills optimization C/C++ compilers . Green Hills’ unparalleled performance and ASIL certification optimizing C/C++ compilers and runtime libraries for Cortex-R52 has made Green Hills the industry standard C/C++ compiler since 2016. When Arm announced the Cortex -R52, they relied on the Green Hills Compiler to achieve “best in class” performance scores. MULTI also offers the industry’s most advanced multi-core, multi-OS debugging and visualization features, which allow developers to find and fix bugs faster, use less CPU memory, and reduce software recalls. expensive.


At the Green Hills Software booth at Embedded World, Hall 4 Stand 325, Green Hills will showcase the µ-visor hypervisor securely hosting multiple operating systems on the S32Z processor, along with advanced debugging and visualization via MULTI IDE and Green Hills C/C++ compilers.
