Paragon brings file system support to INTEGRITY RTOS

Green Hills Software, a specialist in embedded safety and security, and Paragon Software, a provider of storage software solutions, have announced the integration of Paragon File System Link with the Green Hills INTEGRITY real-time operating system (RTOS). Paragon’s drivers enable car owners to connect USB devices, SD cards, or other storage media directly to in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems and instantly enjoy audio and video recordings, regardless of the file system used.

Paragon File System Link smoothly integrates with the INTEGRITY RTOS platform by adding NTFS, HFS+ and exFAT support to other natively supported file systems. It provides multi-process, read-and-write access to NTFS, HFS+ and exFAT file system, achieving high performance results on mount and initial indexing time, and CPU utilization.

Konstantin Komarov, CEO of Paragon Software, commented: “Our collaboration with Green Hills Software addresses the automotive infotainment and telematics demands for the performance-optimized kernel-level drivers. The optimization of Paragon File System Link for the INTEGRITY Virtual File System framework enables various applications to serve multiple clients simultaneously, with multiple fail-safety layers included. In addition, Paragon File System Link guarantees data integrity in case of improper mounting, power loss, and other failures.”

Paragon’s Standby Mode functionality ensures file system consistency and reduces the need for file system checks and repairs. The highly effective Fast Mount feature allows instant access to content, effectively shifting system response time and readiness into high gear. Featuring highly optimized source code, Paragon File System Link ensures low-system requirements without system resource overloads. Paragon File System Link is a highly flexible kernel module that easily integrates into complex workflows guaranteeing the fastest time-to-market.

Green Hills Software’s INTEGRITY RTOS is used extensively by automotive Tier-1s and OEMs. Its advanced partitioning architecture, secure virtualization and processor resource management provide automotive applications the necessary security, certified safety and determinism. INTEGRITY technology is certified to the highest levels of automotive safety (ISO 26262 ASIL D) and the highest security level achieved for any software product – Common Criteria EAL 6+, High Robustness.

Chris Tubbs, business development director, EMEA, Green Hills Software, said: “Automotive applications increasingly require the ability to allow drivers and passengers to interact as seamlessly with their entertainment systems in the car as they do in other environments. To deliver this, manufacturers need a safe and secure software environment that also enables the easy integration of external storage media. The integration of the Green Hills INTEGRITY RTOS and Paragon File System Link provides exactly this combination.”
