QNX announces support for new Intel Atom E3800 processor family

In 2008, the Intel Intelligent Systems Alliance presented QNX Software Systems with an "Award of Excellence, Most Innovative Software" for its fastboot support of the Intel Atom Processor. Fast forward to this morning, when QNX announced that it will extend its Atom support to include the new Intel Atom E3800 product family, which was created to address the high performance-per-watt demands of medical devices, building automation panels, industrial control systems, in-car infotainment systems, and other smart devices.

Said Sam Cravatta, product line manager at Intel, "Stellar graphics support is crucial for application and intelligent system development. The Atom processor E3800 product family is the first to take advantage of Intel’s Gen 7 graphics, complementing QNX Software Systems’ graphics framework, tools, and runtime components for creating sophisticated displays that feature improved 2D and 3D graphics rendering with little CPU overhead.”

Highlights of the Intel Atom E3800 family include high I/O connectivity, an integrated memory controller, virtualization, error correcting code (ECC), and a thermal design power range of 5W to 10W2.
