Paris, February 21 2012 - Magillem, the leading provider of front-end design xml solutions, designed to reduce the global cost of complex designs, and Green Hills Software, the largest independent vendor of embedded software solutions, have joined their efforts to provide a new integration path between the accurate description of the customer platforms designed with Magillem tools and MULTI integrated development environment and processor probes from Green Hills Software.
“Magillem is proud to partner with Green Hills Software to establish an automated bridge between the hardware description and the embedded software. Our customers are designing and updating their platforms during the front-end phase of the flow, thanks to our tools based on an open IEEE 1685 IPXACT XML format,” says Cyril Spasevski, Chairmanand CTO of Magillem.
He continues, “The complete hardware and software documentation with an accurate representation of registers and bit fields is ready to be used as database within Green Hills Software’s MULTI environment. The software teams can debug with their MULTI IDE retrieving a secured and automated documentation directly linked with the hardware description used in production. We are excited to establish this long awaited missing tie to the industry”.
“Green Hills is excited about the partnership with Magillem providing customers an integration path between the Magillem and Green Hills tools,” said Christopher Smith, Green Hills Software’s vice president of marketing. “By integrating Green Hills Software’s highly-reliable software environment and development tools with Magillem’s design IP-XACT solutions, customers will have a robust solution to support their development efforts.”
The first implementation around an ARM-based board will be used by the CEA LETI to demonstrate the great benefits for embedded software developers of such a bridge.
Magillem, a board member of ACCELLERA, has developed an easy to use, IP-XACT based state-of-the-art platform solution to cover electronic systems design flow challenges in a context where complexity, interoperability and design re-use are becoming critical issues to manage design cycle time of SOC.
