Overview

The QNX® Hypervisor is a realtime priority-based Type 1 hypervisor for realtime connected embedded systems. By using the QNX Hypervisor, embedded developers can consolidate multiple operating systems onto a single compute platform or system-on-a-chip (SoC) to reduce the cost, size, weight and power of their system designs while enforcing clean separation and isolation of safety-critical and general-purpose applications and operating systems.

The QNX Hypervisor lets system architects and device manufacturers safely and securely isolate multiple operating systems from one another when running on a single hardware platform, and to greatly reduce overall product costs, development, and safety certification time.

  • Shared and direct device assignment for virtual machines
  • Flexibility to run unmodified operating systems
