New IDE for embedded development previewed at conference

19 June 2002 Design Automation

Embedded developers who choose the QNX RTOS for its unmatched reliability will soon have another reason to use QNX technology: significantly faster development cycles. This is all thanks to the new QNX integrated development environment (IDE), that was showcased at the Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) in San Francisco.

According to QNX Software Systems, the new QNX IDE offers a complete set of tools for code development, project management, debugging, analysis, and profiling, all closely integrated under a single user interface. The QNX IDE also works across multiple development platforms, including Solaris, Windows, and QNX, allowing all embedded developers working on a project to share the same toolset, even if they use a variety of development hosts.

As the first commercial IDE based on the Eclipse platform, the company says that QNX IDE also provides unparalleled tool-to-tool integration, both at the functional and user-interface levels. Tools can work together seamlessly - even if they are from different tools vendors - allowing developers to choose the best tools available for their project requirements.

"When it comes to faster development, QNX developers will soon be able to enjoy the best of both worlds - a microkernel operating system that eliminates needless debugging by allowing all drivers and applications to run as memory-protected processes, and an IDE that eliminates mundane programming tasks by allowing all tools to communicate with each other, rather than simply coexist," said Alec Saunders, vice president of marketing at QNX Software Systems. "Developers can, as a result, focus on what is important: creating reliable, innovative products."
