Infineon and GreenHills Software will provide a full ecosystem for the development and deployment of advanced safety applications for the automotive industry.

This collaboration combines Infineon’s cutting-edge TRAVEO T2G Body and TRAVEO T2GCluster MCUs with Green Hills’ comprehensive production-proven software solutions comprising the ultra-small and fast, ASIL-certified, µ-velOSity RTOS, and the ASIL-certified MULTI advanced development environment. By integrating these proprietary technologies, Infineon and Green Hills are providing OEMs with acomplete solution that offers dependable production-ready software to safely build and deploy automotive applications.

As the digitalization of the automotive industry continues and as eMobility offerings continue to evolve, OEMs are eager to provide consumers with new and innovative applications to differentiate their vehicles.Equally as important to OEMs is ensuring the safety and security of applications within today’s vehicles. The collaboration between Infineon and Green Hills addresses both of these elements withoutsacrificing performance or increasing memory demands of automotive applications. OEMs now have a comprehensive solution that is alsoeasy to deploy, reducing costs and improving both developer productivity and product time-to-market.

Infineon’s TRAVEOT2G Body MCU family addresses a broad variety of automotive applications, including body control modules, door, window, sunroof and seat control units as well as in-cabin smartphone terminals and wireless charging units. Infineon’s TRAVEO T2G Cluster forinstrument cluster enables a more robust and feature-rich graphics engine for automotive display systems, including extensive scalability, covering the conventional gauge instrument cluster, hybrid instrument cluster and virtual instrument cluster.

Green Hills’µ-velOSity RTOS is a tiny, fast and easy-to-program,memory-efficient real-time operating system for a wide range of applications, including those with ASIL requirements. µ-velOSity needs only a few kilobytes of ROM and boots quickly in a minimum ofprocessor cycles. The ultra-small context switch time and fast kernel service calls of this operating system (OS) also make it ideal forreal-time automotive functions. And, the clear, concise application programming interface (API) reduces development time and improves product maintainability, cutting costs and speeding uptime-to-market. In addition, for developers moving from standalone orno-OS configurations, µ-velOSity provides a well-established migration path.

Developers utilizing Infineon’s TRAVEO T2G Body MCU family of processors will see asignificant increase in productivity by using the Green Hills MULTIadvanced integrated development tools that include Green Hills optimizing C/C++ compilers. The unmatched performance and ASIL certification of Green Hills’ compilers and run-time libraries have made Green Hills the industry’s gold standard for C/C++ compilers. MULTI also features the most advanced multicore, multi-OS debugging and visualization capabilities that empower developers to find and fix bugs faster, use less processor memory, and reduce costly software recalls.
