Advantech and QNX ink distribution agreement

Advantech to offer pre-integrated platforms for developers building medical devices, industrial control systems, and other QNX-based applications.

SOM-6894 module: one of many Advantech 
products with integrated QNX support.
No assembly required. That’s the idea behind the new partnership between Advantech and QNX Software Systems.

Advantech can now distribute the QNX Neutrino OS, pre-integrated, on a variety of its embedded hardware platforms, including single board computers, industrial motherboards, computer-on-modules, and fanless embedded box PCs.

The goal is to make life easier for embedded developers: they can now unbox their Advantech hardware and get QNX Neutrino up and running right away.

Tom Keyserlingk, director of global sales at QNX, sees real value in having Advantech on board as a distributor. “They have a global footprint, a comprehensive product portfolio, proven QNX experience, and extensive industry partnerships — all the right ingredients to support our growing reach internationally.”

Angus Hsu, director of embedded computing at Advantech, explains why this partnership is important for Advantech. “The QNX Neutrino OS offers all of the building blocks to create modern embedded devices, from hard realtime performance and advanced security features to graphics frameworks, multimedia support, and mobile-device connectivity — all based on QNX Software Systems’ 35 years of experience in the embedded industry.”

If you’re an embedded developer that uses, or wants to use, Advantech hardware for your QNX-based application, here is a current list of Advantech BSPs for the QNX Neutrino OS:
