QNX tackles Freescale processors as platform for its software
QNX' pre-integrated support builds on the long-term automotive alliance between both companies, and aims to speed time-to-market for customers creating infotainment systems with sophisticated graphics and connectivity features, the software company said in a press release.
The QNX CAR Application Platform provides automakers and suppliers with pre-assembled reference implementations designed to reduce the risk and cost of building sophisticated in-car infotainment systems. Customers can use QNX CAR to build a variety of applications, including digital instrument clusters, multimedia head units, handsfree systems, connectivity modules, and 3D navigation systems.
Freescale’s automotive i.MX processors are designed for applications that require advanced user interfaces, sophisticated video processing, 2D and 3D graphics, multiple connectivity options, and a high level of system integration. The i.MX processors are designed to enable consumer electronics user experiences and advanced device connectivity in the automotive environment.
QNX has developed a concept vehicle based on its application platform and the Freescale i.MX51 processor to demonstrate how a host of new mobile and cloud-based applications can be integrated into the automobile. In June 2010, the concept vehicle won Best in Show at the Freescale Technology Forum (FTF) Americas in Orlando, Florida. All software components in the car — including the QNX Neutrino RTOS, touchscreen user interfaces, media players, Bluetooth stack, handsfree integration, and a virtual mechanic — are based on QNX CAR and the i.MX51.
