QNX, Freescale collaborate on solutions for QorIQ and PowerQUICC processors

This just in: Freescale Semiconductor and QNX Software Systems have announced a strategic alliance focused on solutions for Freescale’s QorlQ and PowerQUICC processor families.

As part of the agreement, the companies intend to "share IP, invest jointly in product and technology roadmaps, and work together on go-to-market activities."

Initially, the alliance will focus on addressing the requirements of customers in the medical, industrial automation, and general embedded markets.

According to Raja Tabet, vice president, Software and Enablement Technology, Networking and Multimedia of Freescale, “QNX Software Systems is recognized globally for its highly reliable and scalable software, and we are pleased to take this important next step in our long and fruitful relationship for the benefit of our shared customers.”

The alliance between Freescale and QNX has already enabled many successful systems, including GE's flagship Mark VIe controller, which runs on the QNX Neutrino RTOS and a Freescale PowerQUICC processor. Other joint projects include the connected Corvette and the QNX medical demo, which both run on Freescale i.MX processors.

Great news to see the partnership between QNX and Freescale strengthened.

We recently added QNX support to our Lancero PCI Express SGDMA solution for Altera FPGA's which was validated on the Freescale QorQ P2020 reference design running QNX Neutrino 6.5.0.

It allows QNX and Freescale customers to add high-performance and low latency data acquisition to their product.
