QNX OS aces performance benchmarks

If you've ever wondered why the QNX Neutrino OS is popular in applications that demand fast, predictable performance, have I got some benchmarks for you.

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

After putting 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.

    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.
