This week at Convergence QNX demonstrated a digital instrument cluster running on the new i.MX53 Smart Application Blueprint for Rapid Engineering platform for Automotive Infotainment. This is the new Freescale platform replaces the EVK and adds a very distinctive automotive flavour. It adds many automotive specific capabilities including multi-channel audio, multiple microphone inputs, a Sirius/XM radio module, camera input capability and a broadcast tuner module connector.
It is a very well thought out system and lays the groundwork for future automotive devices from Freescale. I’m happy to report that right now QNX is the only RTOS available for this new platform so if you want to check out what SABRE can do drop us a line.
