Yossi comes from Novtech, a company he founded that specialized in hardware and mechanical design. And Boris knows the i.mx inside and out from his time at Freescale. Boris saw the natural synergy between our rich i.mx BSP portfolio and Icytecture’s product roadmap of i.mx based hardware. His first platform is just coming out, it’s based on an i.mx31 and can be customized or ordered and deployed in its current form. Rumour has it that an i.mx35 based system is just around the corner.
And while they may be new to our ecosystem, they’re already doing the things that we consider best practices for a new partner – they spent a week in a QNX training course here in Kanata, they’re committed to writing and supporting their own BSP, and they introduced us to a new customer. (What more can you ask for?)
There is more…. they’ve agreed to post their BSP on Foundry 27 when its ready. We’re expecting to see it within the next few weeks. Life doesn’t get much better than this.
