Deliver safety-certified medical devices to market faster with BlackBerry QNX

Medical device makers trust BlackBerry® QNX® software for a broad range of life-critical and graphics-rich medical applications. That’s because our foundational software is time-tested, inherently secure and purpose-built for embedded systems. Here’s how BlackBerry QNX can help you get your medical applications and devices to market—faster.

Get Proven Reliability, Performance and Security

Build Upon a Safe and Reliable Foundation
The QNX® OS for Safety and the QNX® Hypervisor for Safety are pre-certified to IEC 62304—so you can streamline the safety certification process for your devices. The QNX Hypervisor enables you to manage non-safety Linux® applications in isolation. You can easily port safety-critical applications to any of our POSIX-compatible, Eclipse-based microkernel RTOS solutions. 
Secure Your Software Bill of Materials
Detect and remediate software security issues with BlackBerry® Jarvis®, which quickly and accurately analyzes binaries. BlackBerry Jarvis can scan complete software products for security vulnerabilities and software craftsmanship, without source code, and will provide recommendations for resolving issues. 
Protect Software, Applications and Devices
Secure the production and personalization of your products with the Certicom® Asset Management System (AMS). The Certicom AMS helps device manufacturers securely provision cryptographic keys, trust anchors, unique device identifiers and debug passwords, with visibility and governance over the manufacturing process—regardless of location.
