at Embedded World
This just in: QNX issued two announcements today, one focused on helping developers build wireless connectivity into embedded devices, the other focused on helping medical device manufacturers build products that must pass regulatory approval.

Wireless solutions — QNX has struck up preferred partnerships with LS Research and Silex Technology to develop pre-validated solutions based on ARM-based connectivity modules. Initial implementations will include the LS Research COM6L-BLE wireless evaluation module, which uses TI WL1271L silicon, and Silex wireless modules, which use the Qualcomm Atheros AR6003 Wi-Fi chip. QNX will provide first-line technical support to help customers speed up product design and commercialization. Read the press release.

OS for medical devices — QNX has also announced the upcoming QNX Neutrino Realtime Operating System for medical devices, which will comply with the IEC 62304 medical device standard for software life cycle processes. To further help medical-device manufacturers, QNX has introduced on-site audits, proven-in-use data, training courses on designing dependable systems, and assistance to meet compliancy requirements. Read the press release.

Both announcements coincide with the Embedded World congress in Nuremburg, where QNX Software Systems is exhibiting its latest products and delivering talks on in-field debugging, realtime scheduling, and publish/subscribe messaging.
