Built on the secure foundation of the INTEGRITY® RTOS, this platform now includes wireless driver support for Atheros Communications AR6002-based 802.11a/b/g SDIO radio modules. Green Hills has also extended its partnership with Silex Technology to offer support and services for customers deploying Wi-Fi-enabled products based on the Atheros family of radio modules.
“We are pleased to be expanding our support for the Green Hills Platform for Wireless Devices in response to the growing customer demand for INTEGRITY integration and support,” said Kelly Oberle, vice president of product management, Silex Technology America. “Our complete low power SDIO wireless products and support services in combination with this wireless platform are key to addressing the increasing requirement to include wireless capabilities in products while delivering proven device security and reliability.”

Silex Technology engineers performed the device driver porting effort to add AR6002 support for Green Hills safe and secure INTEGRITY RTOS, and have culminated many years of experience working with Atheros drivers and INTEGRITY. Silex offers extensive support services for Green Hills customers deploying Wi-Fi-enabled products based on AR6002 and INTEGRITY. These services enable rapid time-to-deployment for customers requiring Wi-Fi Certification and compliance with international regulatory standards.
