QNX Software Systems and Freescale Semiconductor have agreed to collaborate on the development of solutions for Freescale’s QorlQ and PowerQUICC processor families.
The companies intend to share IP, invest jointly in product and technology roadmaps, and work together on go-to-market activities.
Joint development will initially focus on the use of QNX operating system software, middleware, development tools and engineering services to create solutions for the medical, industrial automation and general embedded markets. The collaboration is expected to produce pre-integrated and optimised solutions that deliver QNX software performance, ease-of-use and energy efficiency for QorlQ and PowerQUICC processors.
QNX also partnered with Texas Instruments on the launch of an education programme in China. The companies are establishing joint labs committed to vehicle infotainment, intelligent traffic control and general embedded systems development. The first phase of the rapidly growing programme, which began in August 2010, currently supports technical research at 12 of the top engineering and automotive universities in the country.
