Green Hills Software, the global leader in high-assurance real-time operating systems and virtualisation for automotive, has announced the availability of the safe and secure INTEGRITY® real-time operating system (RTOS) and its integrated products/services for the Telemaco3P automotive processor from STMicroelectronics. Today, customers are using the highly integrated ST platform in production vehicle programs for secure telematics and connectivity functions.
The platform combines the ASIL-certified INTEGRITY RTOS, middleware and ASIL-certified software development tools with the STMicroelectronics automotive processor. Global carmakers and their suppliers can add new levels of safe and secure performance, enabling a wide range of secure telematics applications supporting high-throughput connectivity to the cloud and secure over-the-air firmware upgrades.
“Working with solid and reliable partners like Green Hills enables us to offer customers a robust platform with more processing power and proven cybersecurity. The next-generation telematics and connectivity ECUs are fully realised on a hardware and software platform that’s integrated and optimized for security and safety,” said Luca Rodeschini, Automotive and Discrete Group Strategy Office & Automotive Processors Division General Manager, STMicroelectronics. “The combination of the Telemaco3P’s efficient performance and security with the INTEGRITY RTOS’ certified separation architecture is an ideal platform for OEMs and their Tier 1s to realise telematics and vehicle connectivity designs.”
For many years, Green Hills Software and ST have enjoyed a fruitful partnership, providing automotive-grade solutions and support to customers throughout their product lifecycle – from development on early samples to deployment on high-volume production programs.
ST’s Telemaco3P provides a cost-effective system-on-chip solution for a secure connection between the vehicle and the cloud. It features an asymmetric multicore architecture, embedded Hardware Security Module (HSM), ISO 26262 silicon design up to ASIL-B, independent and isolated CAN control subsystem, Ethernet AVB and optimised power management.
The INTEGRITY real-time operating system architecture was designed and certified for life-critical embedded systems. For over two decades customers have successfully relied on INTEGRITY for the most critical functions – to fly passenger aircraft, control surgical devices and run intelligent automotive driver assistance systems. INTEGRITY separation architecture enables software teams to safely and securely run software of different levels of criticality on the same processor while guaranteeing software tasks can access the system resources they need.
