About This Book

The Building Embedded Systems guide is intended for developers who are building embedded systems that will run under the QNX Neutrino RTOS.

Note: QNX Neutrino runs on several processor families (e.g. PowerPC, MIPS, ARM, SH-4, x86). For information on getting started with Neutrino on a particular board, refer to the appropriate BSP (Board Support Package) documentation for your board.

This guide is organized around these main topics:

Topic Chapter(s)
Getting the big picture Overview of Building Embedded Systems
Getting started with your board support package Working with a BSP
Making an image Making an OS Image
Preparing your target Writing an IPL Program;
Customizing Image Startup Programs;
Customizing the Flash Filesystem;
Sample Buildfiles
Dealing with hardware issues System Design Considerations
Terms used in QNX docs Glossary

Note: We assume that you've already installed QNX Neutrino and that you're familiar with its architecture. For a detailed overview, see the System Architecture manual.

If you plan to use the Photon microGUI in your embedded system, refer to the "Photon in Embedded Systems" appendix in the Photon Programmer's Guide.
