Green Hills Software is a privately owned company that builds operating systems and development tools for embedded systems. The company was founded in 1982 by Dan O'Dowd and Carl Rosenberg. Headquarters are in Santa Barbara, California.
Green Hills Software and Wind River Systems enacted a 99-year contract as cooperative peers in the embedded software engineering market throughout the 1990s, with their relationship ending in a series of lawsuits throughout the early 2000s. This resulted in their opposite parting of ways, whereupon Wind River devoted itself to publicly embrace Linux and open-source software but Green Hills initiated a public relations campaign to decry its use in issues of national security.
Real-time operating systems
- INTEGRITY is a POSIX real-time operating system (RTOS). A variant of this RTOS, named INTEGRITY-178B, was certified to Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level (EAL) 6+, High Robustness in November 2008.
- µ-velOSity is a real-time microkernel for resource-constrained devices.
Green Hills produces compilers for C, C++, Fortran, and Ada. The compilers target 32- and 64-bit platforms, including ARC, ARM, Blackfin, ColdFire, MIPS, PowerPC, SuperH, StarCore, x86, V850, and XScale.
Integrated development environments
- MULTI is an IDE for C, C++, EC++, and Ada, aimed at embedded engineers.
- TimeMachine is a set of tools for optimizing and debugging C and C++ software. TimeMachine (introduced 2003) supports reverse debugging like that in the open-source GDB 7.0 debugger (2009).
