Board Support Packages (BSPs)

After you install the QNX OS, you can download any processor-specific Board Support Package (BSP) from our website, The BSPs are designed to help you get the QNX OS running on various supported platforms. To use a BSP, you must either unzip the archive and build it on the command line or import it into the IDE.

To become more familiar with BSPs, see "Working with a BSP" in the Building Embedded Systems guide.

A BSP typically includes an Initial Program Loader (IPL), a startup program, a default buildfile, networking support, board-specific device drivers, system managers, utilities, and so on.
