Green Hills’ MULTI IDE steps up to version 7

September 18, 2015 // By Graham Prophet
Green Hills Software has a release of its MULTI integrated development environment that continues the company’s multicore support with advances in automation and ease of configuration, aimed at allowing developers to approach multicore debugging as they do single-core debugging.

MULTI 7 includes developer productivity advances, including modifications that reduce the time to find performance problems, increase the ease of data sharing with other MULTI users, and refine the interface to improve information density and customisability.

“We are increasingly living in a world of multicore devices, but most debugging tools have not fully embraced this fact,”Green Hills comments, “MULTI 7 is designed to simplify the inherent complexity of multicore devices while making embedded development faster and easier.”

MULTI is also claimed to be the first commercially available IDE to meet the highest standards of functional safety, including IEC 61508:2010 (Industrial), EN 50128:2011 (Railway) and ISO 26262:2011 (Automotive). MULTI, GHS adds, satisfies both SIL 4 (Safety Integrity Level) and ASIL D (Automotive Safety Integrity Level) and is certified by TÜV NORD and exida. The IDE is available for Windows, Linux, and Solaris.
