Combination of RISC-V CPUs & Advanced RTOS Accelerate Real-Time Safety/Security-Focused Implementations

22 June 2023

Imagination Technologies and Green Hills Software have partnered up to provide a comprehensive ecosystem for RISC-V development projects.

The RISC-V Catapult CPUs from Imagination Technologies will now be supported by Green Hills’ µ-velOSity real-time operating system (RTOS), which is both safety and security certified.
The µ-velOSity RTOS is the smallest of Green Hills’ RTOS offerings. It has been updated and optimised for RISC-V architecture usage, and certified to address a broad number of industry standards for functional safety and security. The streamlined design, alongside seamless integration with the MULTI integrated development environment (IDE) and C/C++ compilers, makes it easy to work with. Developers can thereby create advanced high-performance systems for automotive, industrial and IoT applications, while using only minimal footprint.
According to Dan Mender, VP of Business Development at Green Hills Software; “The adoption of the RISC-V instruction set architecture is increasing rapidly in countless markets, particularly in IoT, industrial, and embedded applications. By using Imagination’s Catapult family and our µ-velOSity RTOS, advanced debugger and optimizing C/C++ compilers, customers can efficiently create and confidently deploy safety and security critical RISC-V applications."
“Imagination’s RISC-V real-time CPUs are a key initial milestone in our RISC-V product roadmap. We recognise the importance of this architecture in shaping the technologies to come, and we understand the importance of partnering with Green Hills to offer developers the right tools and operating systems to achieve complete application control and visibility,” adds Shreyas Derashri, VP of Compute at Imagination Technologies.
