QNX Neutrino RTOS surpasses performance benchmarks

For over 30 years, the QNX® Neutrino® RTOS has been the accepted platform in applications that demand fast, predictable performance. Now we have the 3rd party data to back this up.

Dedicated Systems Experts, a professional services company that specializes in real-time systems, performed independent evaluations of the QNX Neutrino RTOS on three different platforms: ARM Cortex A8, Intel Atom, and Pentium.

After putting the QNX Neutrino through its paces, they determined that it offers:

  • Excellent architecture
  • Very fast and predictable performance
  • User-friendly development environment
  • Above average documentation
  • Support for many embedded platforms

In fact, QNX scored 9 out of 10 on the dimensions of architecture, documentation, tools, and performance.

RTOS Benchmark


The performance benchmarks, which are especially rigorous, gauge whether an OS has what it takes for applications that have zero tolerance for missed deadlines. These tests include thread-switch latency and interrupt latency.
