SOFTWARE TOOLS: QNX launches newest version of its Neutrino RTOS


Ottawa, Canada – QNX Software Systems has just launched QNX Neutrino' 6.4, the newest version of its realtime operating system (RTOS), the first product to be fully developed within QNX's new hybrid software development model.

According to Kerry Johnson, director of product management, QNX Software Systems, customers, partners, and developers that joined Foundry27, QNX's community development portal are able to interact and offer feedback on the Neutrino update.

He said Neutrino 6.4 provides developers building next generation embedded applications for the automotive, industrial automation, networking, military and medical industries with expanded processor support, a faster networking stack and a convenient, customizable software bundle.

Neutrino 6.4 was developed largely based on customer feedback and interaction in Foundry27. Neutrino is now also compliant with the POSIX PSE52 Realtime Controller System product standard and meets the requirements of Common Criteria certification to the Evaluation Assurance Level 4+ (EAL4+).

In addition, said Johnson, expanded processor support provides customers with the flexibility to run on the ARMv6, Renesas 7786 SMP, and Freescale e500 SMP processors.

Further enhancements to version 6.4 include a faster networking stack, WiFi compatibility, and a more customizable software bundle giving developers the option to pick and choose the tools they need to complete a project on time.

According to Johnson, Foundry27 has grown to more than 20,000 members, with multiple customer, partner and employee projects underway, and several active blogs that average more than 500 posts each month. Community members have access to vast resources relating to the QNX Neutrino RTOS, including its source code, the QNX Momentics IDE, and community projects.
