Develop QNX OS for Safety 2.2.3-based products in the cloud.
QNX® Accelerate is an initiative that lets you develop mission-critical embedded systems based on BlackBerry® QNX® technology. By harnessing the agility, speed, and scale of the cloud, it empowers developers in new ways—enabling better collaboration, increasing development efficiencies, and reducing time-to-market.
Focus your efforts on developing the systems your customers need. The QNX OS for Safety will meet your performance and reliability requirements and facilitate your systems’ safety certifications.
The QNX OS for Safety is certified by TÜV Rheinland to IEC 61508 SIL 3, ISO 26262 ASIL D and IEC 62304 Class C. It includes toolchains qualified to ISO 26262 and IEC 61508 TCL3 and T3 requirements. And, our C++ library add-on is certified to ISO 26262 ASIL B/D.
The QNX OS for Safety can be used as a Safety Element out of Context (SEooC) to realize safety goals up to IEC 61508 SIL 3, ISO 26262 ASIL D and IEC 62304 Class C.
Protect Critical Functionality
Certify Your Code, Not Your Toolchains
A safety-certified OS and qualified toolchains mean that you’ll have confidence in the software you build, and that you’ll have a quick and smooth certification process.
With the QNX OS for Safety you’ll be able to build your systems with C and C++ toolchains classified as TCL3 and T3 according to ISO 26262 and IEC 61508. You’ll need to certify only the parts of the system you build, not the OS you build it on or the toolchains you use to build it.
Familiar QNX Neutrino RTOS API
If you’re familiar with the QNX Neutrino RTOS and POSIX APIs, you won’t need ramp-up time to begin your development work. The QNX OS for Safety is fully API-compatible with the QNX Neutrino RTOS API.
Develop non-safety as well as safety-critical applications on the same foundation OS while continuing to use the QNX® Momentics® Tool Suite.
