More Modules, More Modules, and yes, More modules

In a recent EDM campaign for ruggedized modules and extended temperature solutions, Advantech posted a QNX Neutrino OS/Compatibility Support list where they list more than 40 modules with QNX Neutrino support.

What’s faster – A QNX CAR or a Genivi?

August 24, 2009

I’m a little overdue in writing this but at a recent tradeshow we booked a meeting room. We had a parade of automotive Tier one suppliers, OEMs and partners come through the meeting room to see the latest on the QNX CAR reference platform.

What was different this time is while we were showing the latest integrations (Pandora, Chumby etc), we were also demoing the first Tier one implementation based on QNX CAR. The Tier one, who would prefer to remain nameless, allowed us to show off their fully featured mid-level infotainment unit prototype. They took QNX CAR, added their preferred navigation and speech recognition technology and customized the HMI. It was a very slick unit.

What’s the big deal you might ask. Tier ones develop prototype systems all the time?

This Tier one went from a standing start to a fully functional prototype in under four months. That’s what got everyone excited at the show. That’s what you can do with QNX CAR.

I wonder how long it would take if you tried to do this with Genivi?

QNX Supports Atmels latest ARM9 processors

August 12, 2009

Atmel mentions QNX support in a roundup release for support of their latest G45 ARM 9 processor. http://media-newswire.com/release_1095618.htm

Our Atmel 9263 BSP continues to be one of our most popular BSP downloads from the QNX developer community Foundry 27. QNX is seeing a demand for these low power ARM 9 MPU’s for applications ranging from Industrial Automaton , Building control, hand held devices, medical, Television and Set-Top Box and many other applications.

Due to the design success of this part, QNX will be posting refreshed BSP support for the 9260, 9261, 9263 and M10 a design close to the G45. We are in the process of evaluating the migration of the M10 to G45. Look for these BSPs to be available for download in the next month. You will find them listed for download here:  http://community.qnx.com/sf/wiki/do/viewPage/projects.bsp/wiki/BSPAndDrivers

Note: USB and NAND support will be included.

Cheers,
