Green Hills Software Announces Multicore TimeMachine Trace Tools for MIPS and Renesas Microcontrollers

From:  Bloomberg

COMMENT -  And we here at Craig Franklin & Green Hills Software, continue to trace the trajectory of digitized 'news' across the Internet, this documenting a form of advertising which made Dan (Drone Boy) O'Dowd, with his wife, Amy Chang O'Dowd, billionaires, extending their material success far beyond their wildest dreams, or deserving.  

While we celebrate the success of individuals whose hard work, innovation, and ingenuity, provides tools for increasing the good will between individuals and nations it is not possible to view the money piled up by the O'Dowd war contracting in this way.  

How can you compare someone whose work adds to the life and well being of people to those who profit from the destruction of peace, human life, and the Earth? 

'Blow Back,' the term used to describe the impact on those people who have experienced the harsh reality of death and violence delivered by the U. S. war machine, is the term used, both by the CIA and those in government when discussing the reaction to seeing your cities, your neighborhoods, and those you love blown up before your eyes.  

If this happened in America I like to think we would take action.  Yet when innocent civilians attempt to protect themselves, and those they love, in countries where Greedville is extracting financial gain by stealing their natural resources, or pounding them with munitions sold to the U. S. war machine under cover of 'national security,' we view them as 'terrorists.'  

Back in the U. S. the people, for instance the O'Dowds, Dan and Amy, who live lives of unbridled opulence in   Montecito, California, minutes from the national Headquarters of Green Hills Software, Inc., are part of a conduit for death which ends in the bloodied remains of small children and women, their lives ended abruptly at times when they believed themselves safe in their homes.  

All conduits can be reduced to their component parts.  This one begins with the greed of corporations which see government as the medium for allowing them to enrich themselves through the manipulation of the emotions of Americans.  Ordinary Americans want to believe our country is justified in making war.  But this happens only by focusing on a mythic heroism which cannot be supported by fact.  

As Lt. General Smedley Butler said, "War is a Racket."  Butler saw the final option, what John Perkins, author of, "Confessions of an Economic Hitman," said was reserved by corporations when enmeshing other nations is debt to multinationals fail.  Option two kicks in when is not possible to coerce compliance from national leaders who prove themselves unwilling to see their people destroyed by debt.  The two men were masters of Option One, The Hitman, and option three, War.  Perkins calls option two, "sending in the jackals," assassins to take out leaders who stand up for their people. 

Dan and Amy, occupying a minor role, supply the software to optimize death.  Of course, they are not alone in this at Green Hills Software, but they do benefit the most. 

Others who benefit, and certainly understand the game, include Craig Franklin, Dave Kleidermacher, and Dave Chandler.  More on them, later. 

What kind of symbols should we use to mark each life ended by Green Hills Software?

How about these?  One for a little boy, another for a baby girl, for children who will not grow up to realize the potential for life granted them by God. 

All normal people love their children.  The demonization of foreigners by public relations firms, funded by those same corporations, is unhuman, and without conscience.     


Green Hills Software Announces Multicore TimeMachine Trace Tools for MIPS and Renesas Microcontrollers 

Extends Award-Winning Tool Suite With Multicore Debug and Analysis Capabilities 

SANTA BARBARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/16/13 -- Green Hills Software, the largest independent vendor of embedded software solutions, today announced broad multicore enhancements to their industry-leading trace-based debugger, TimeMachine(TM) tool suite.
Multicore TimeMachine support brings unprecedented visibility into the complex interactions of software running on multicore MIPS and Renesas RH850 and V850 processors, resulting in faster time-to-market and higher reliability for multicore-based firmware products. For SoC designers, multicore TimeMachine is a powerful tool to assist with pre-tape-out chip verification, reducing risk, time-to-market, and time to accelerate silicon sales. TimeMachine advanced scripting capabilities allow for automated testing on virtual platforms.
"Imagination is delighted that our long-time partner Green Hills is making its multicore TimeMachine tools available for MIPS CPUs. Multicore and multi-threaded MIPS cores provide high-performance, efficient processing across a wide range of embedded and consumer products. With multicore TimeMachine, developers creating software for these processors have a new level of visibility and control, with the ability to debug, optimize, and test code in powerful new ways," said Tony King-Smith, EVP of marketing, Imagination Technologies, which recently acquired MIPS Technologies, Inc., and with it the industry-standard MIPS microprocessor architecture.
For software developers, multicore TimeMachine enables developers to visualize, replay, and debug their software's execution backward in time across multiple cores within an SoC. The TimeMachine suite enables firmware engineers to quickly find bugs and inefficiencies in multicore systems. As part of the Green Hills Software MULTI(R) IDE (integrated development environment), this capability enables multicore bugs to be easily and quickly eliminated. Without the trace-based visibility of TimeMachine, the complex interactions between multiple heterogeneous cores are difficult to see, resulting in long turn-around times on software defects.
The TimeMachine debugger allows the user to synchronously step forward and backward on all cores, to set software and hardware breakpoints and to run forwards or backwards, so all cores synchronously stop upon hitting the breakpoint. As a result the user can see what all cores are doing before and upon hitting those breakpoints. Developers can optimize their program through profiling information derived non-intrusively from gigabytes of trace data. Beyond debugging, confidence for completeness in testing can be obtained from code coverage data also derived non-intrusively from the trace data.
"For the past decade, TimeMachine has been the premier tool in the embedded industry for tracking down the most difficult bugs -- those intermittent and hard to reproduce problems that so often cause software to be late or buggy. Those difficult bugs have only become more complicated over the years as software is running across multiple cores on extremely complex devices. Multicore TimeMachine allows the execution of all cores on the SoC to be replayed repeatedly, and for the first time giving developers the control and visibility required to efficiently solve the most difficult problems," commented Tim Reed, vice president of Advanced Products, Green Hills Software.
About TimeMachine The TimeMachine debugger provides developers the ability to run and step an application back in time after a failure occurs, allowing easy identification of its root cause. This avoids the tedious and open-ended process of trial-and-error debugging required by previous generations of debuggers. The TimeMachine suite also includes a number of visualization tools, such as the PathAnalyzer, which bring to light complex system execution flow, making it easier to locate and mitigate performance bottlenecks.
About SuperTrace Probe The SuperTrace(TM) probe supports trace ports running at speeds beyond 300 MHz, collecting enormous amounts of trace data while the CPU executes at full speed. TimeMachine then analyzes the trace data to reconstruct the code execution steps that the processor followed. The SuperTrace probe provides both a means of controlling the processor's trace logic and a channel for capturing trace data while the processor is running. In addition to the trace features, the SuperTrace probe also includes all the run-control features of the Green Hills probe.
Availability The SuperTrace Probe and multicore enhancements are available today for ARM, MIPS, PowerPC, and Renesas processors.
