As a part of its continued investments in its networking product portfolio, Santa Barbara, Calif.-based provider of embedded development solutions Green Hills Software recently released the updated version of Platform for Secure Networking.

The release takes place at a time when telecommunication equipment are getting increasingly sophisticated, incorporating cutting-edge systems-on-chip (SoC) along with numerous specialized network processing elements. A careful management is needed to derive performance efficiency benefits from these sophisticated elements. The enhanced version of Green Hills Platform for Secure Networking is expected to help designers meet this challenge.

The Green Hills Platform for Secure Networking is a comprehensive platform consisting of operating systems, secure virtualization, OS-agnostic development tools, and middleware. The platform, according to the company enables developers to create secure, powerful, high-performance connected electronic products in the least time and at the lowest cost.

In a press release, Green Hills said that the recent updates include a powerful new multicore communications API, fast path network packet optimization, support for native and virtualized third party Linux operating systems, and comprehensive optimizations for Freescale (News - Alert) Semiconductor's QorIQ multicore networking processors. The updates are meant to provide designers of sophisticated telecommunication equipment with a more powerful set of multicore-optimized development tools with flexible target software solutions that help them maximize performance and system availability while reducing development cost and time-to-market, the company explained in the release.

“Our Platform for Secure Networking, with its comprehensive operating system, hypervisor, and middleware solutions coupled with the leading multicore development and system observability tools, enables embedded systems designers to maximize performance and system availability while reducing development cost and time-to-market,” Green Hill CTO David Kleidermacher commented in a statement.

Last week Green Hills Software announced its new INTEGRITY Security Services business unit. The new investment reflects Green Hill’s commitment to the security and management of devices, software, networks and content in the embedded and special-purpose computing market, the company said in a previous media release.
