Green Hills adds model-based design to embedded toolchain
Green Hills Software has partnered with LieberLieber, the specialist in model engineering, to provide an end-to-end model-driven toolchain for embedded system design.
Green Hills Software’s MULTI integrated development environment (IDE) and LieberLieber’s AMUSE (Advanced Modeling Using Simulation and Execution) will be integrated in the toolchain which will implement debugging and testing capabilities at the modeling level directly connected to the embedded target.
“The MULTI IDE will enable compiling and deployment of generated C/C++ code right from the model to the respective target platform,” said Green Hills.
The debugging information will be graphically visualised by AMUSE in the original modeling environment where the user can improve the model and instantly deploy the changes back on the target for re-testing.
The code generation supports Class Diagrams, State Charts and Activity Diagrams and is optimised for low-end embedded devices. The innovative approach can be applied to all targets supported by the MULTI IDE.
The new toolchain will consist of the high-end MULTI IDE from Green Hills Software for embedded systems, the well-known modeling platform Enterprise Architect from Sparx Systems and the graphical UML debugger and code generator AMUSE from LieberLieber.
“Today’s developers want the most efficient means to produce their products, to get to market quicker and to deliver high quality products with minimal bugs.
The combination of LieberLieber’s AMUSE and Green Hills Software’s compilers and the MULTI IDE will provide these capabilities in a well-integrated package,” said Chris Tubbs, business development director EMEA, Green Hills Software.
