Building reliable file systems for embedded devices

The QNX Software Development Platform 6.4.0 is the latest version of the QNX® Neutrino® RTOS and QNX Momentics® Tool Suite in one convenient package. This is the first major product developed on Foundry 27, the QNX community portal web site. Release 6.4.0 introduces several new technologies to maximize the performance, reliability, and portability of embedded systems for the automotive, industrial control, networking, military, and medical industries.


Release 6.4.0 offers a dramatically faster networking stack that supports NetBSD 4.0 TCP/IP, including 802.11 a/b/g wireless. It also introduces variable page size tuning for faster OS and application performance.

More reliable
Building on the QNX reputation for reliability and high availability, the QNX Neutrino RTOS now offers a fail-safe disk file system to protect critical data in the event of a sudden power failure or shutdown.

The QNX SDP 6.4.0 release is officially POSIX PSE52 certified. The QNX Neutrino RTOS 6.4.0 is currently being tested for EAL4 certification. A future QNX Neutrino RTOS Secure Kernel product will be available in early CY2009.

Certified portability
This latest release of the QNX Neutrino RTOS has been certified to the POSIX PSE52 Realtime Controller 1003.13 2003 System standard to ensure source-code portability. This certification ensures portability of third-party and open-source applications to the QNX Neutrino RTOS.

Improved tools
The new QNX Momentics Tool Suite offers significant enhancements, including a high-resolution application profiler that detects sluggish areas of application code through both instrumentation and statistical sampling. Also included is the latest versions of the GNU toolchain (4.2.4) and Eclipse CDT (4.0.x), and JTAG debugging.
