U.S.-based Green Hills Software announced Tuesday that it will collaborate in automotive applications with Franco-Italian chipmaker STMicroelectronics and Germany's Cetitec, a subsidiary of the Porsche Group.

The three partners say they intend to jointly develop a scalable communications platform for zone controllers in centralized vehicle electrical/electronic (E/E) architectures.

The joint solution is to be based on Green Hills' µ-velOSity real-time operating system, ST's Stellar automotive microcontrollers and connectivity products developed by Cetitec.

In a press release, Green Hills explains that the automotive sector is currently going through a phase of industrial transformation that is leading to vehicles being designed around software, resulting in a disruption of zonal E/E architecture and leading to the centralization of a whole series of ECUs that were previously spread across several zones.
