Freescale and Green Hills Software Announce Optimized Tools for Freescale's Next-Generation Automotive Microcontrollers
Freescale Semiconductor and Green Hills Software today announced their commitment to an aligned product roadmap for the new Freescale MPC57xx family of Qorivva automotive microcontrollers (MCU). Green Hills Software's MULTI multicore debugger, optimizing compiler, TimeMachine suite and processor probes will leverage Qorivva's powerful Power Architecture core and enhanced peripherals, multicore debug and high-speed processor trace interfaces. Through the collaboration, automotive carmakers and Tier 1 developers of powertrain, hybrid, body and instrument cluster applications will enjoy early access and global software support for the MPC57xx roadmap.
Today's automotive electronic control units (ECUs) demand increased processing performance and power efficiency, built-in software security and sophisticated functional safety capability within a zero-defect environment. Freescale's MPC57xx family was designed to provide this capability via intelligent hardware peripherals and complementary software libraries. Developers require a correspondingly powerful set of development tools.

Our latest series of Qorivva 32-bit MCUs continues to deliver innovative solutions for engine control, vehicle dynamics and safety-critical applications throughout the vehicle, said Ray Cornyn, vice president of Freescale's Automotive MCU business. The optimized Green Hills development tools and software fully complement and enhance the capabilities of our Qorivva microcontrollers.

In working closely with Freescale Semiconductor, Green Hills continues to evolve its platform offerings to address the growing demands of the automotive industry, commented Dan Mender, vice president of business development, Green Hills Software. Through our collaboration, we are able to bring unprecedented reliability, performance, and debug capabilities to Freescale's latest lineup of Qorivva MPC57xx automotive microcontrollers.
