Renesas Electronics Corp. and Green Hills Software have announced a joint partnership wherein Green Hills will provide a software development environment and basic virtualisation software support for Renesas Electronics' CPU virtualisation technology suitable for real-time control applications.

Renesas Electronics has been developing CPU virtualisation technology for the V850 architecture to enable control of multiple systems with a single CPU core without mutual interference, claiming high-speed and composite control in fields such as industrial machinery and automotive systems, where real-time control is essential.

Through the partnership, Renesas Electronics will develop added functions necessary for the efficient operation of virtualisation software enabling high-speed real-time control and improving the usability of the software development environment, incorporating these functions into microcontrollers (MCUs) with V850 CPU core.

Green Hills Software will port the MULTI Integrated Development Environment (IDE), which includes components such as a compiler and a debugger that already support Renesas Electronics' V850 core. The new CPU virtualisation technology offers support for software that enables multiple applications to run independently and simultaneously on a single CPU, such as the INTEGRITY RTOS (real time operating system).

The Green Hills IDE will generate compact and high-speed instruction code optimised for the CPU virtualisation technology provided by Renesas Electronics' V850 core. When combined with virtualisation software such as INTEGRITY Secure Virtualisation, which support safety standards such as IEC 61508, the software development environment will offer the means to develop and implement with high efficiency applications with excellent functional safety. There are also plans to include support for the emerging ISO 26262 functional safety standard.

Green Hills Software says its contribution will facilitate design procedures in virtualized environments through its virtualisation software and the software development environment.

The software development environment will be available through Green Hills Software as part of the MULTI product family.
