December 04, 2017 // By Julien Happich
Green Hills Software is now making available its safe and secure INTEGRITY RTOS and supporting products/services portfolio for the i.MX 8 family of applications processors from NXP Semiconductors.

The trusted 64-bit INTEGRITY run-time architecture is supported by ASIL-certified development tools, embedded cryptographic tool kit and cloud-based secure credential management system. The combined scalable platform enables global carmakers and their suppliers to bring new levels of safe and secure graphics-rich performance to the software-defined vehicle cockpit, such as safety-certified instrument clusters, multi-screen entertainment and vehicle-critical information.

The i.MX 8 families of applications processors are feature and performance-scalable multicore platforms, based on 64-bit Arm Cortex-A72, -A53, -A35 and Cortex-M4. Marquee hardware features include an advanced multi-stream vision processing pipeline, dual-core GPU and system MMU – all providing the efficient performance to drive four 1080p screens, eight-camera 360º surround view with image stitching, dedicated cryptographic security and HiFi 4 DSP speech recognition with noise cancellation – to name a few.

Starting with today’s base support from Green Hills for the NXP reference platforms, customers have a comprehensive set of Green Hills Software’s capabilities to build from for their own custom platforms based on the i.MX 8 and i.MX 8X applications processors. The INTEGRITY RTOS features performance-focused optimisations for the Arm 64-bit Cortex-A72 and Cortex-A53 cores, leveraging i.MX 8 accelerators such as NEON SIMD and hardware virtualisation.
