QNX® - Support, Consulting and Custom Software Development
setod is your reliable partner for support, engineering and software development around the real-time operating system QNX® from BlackBerry®. With our expertise, we help you to fully exploit the power of QNX® and develop customized solutions for your specific requirements in a variety of application areas.
As an experienced partner for the QNX operating system, setod offers software development support. With a deep understanding of QNX architecture and functionality, we are able to develop and customize software solutions and applications. Whether you are active in automotive engineering, medical technology, industrial control or any other field, we can optimally support your QNX-based projects.
The QNX Resource Manager is a powerful framework within the QNX operating system that facilitates the implementation of device drivers and utilities for resource management. setod has been providing hardware drivers for its own hardware products as well as specific driver development for customer products for many years.
A Board Support Package (BSP) for QNX is a collection of software components specifically designed to support and adapt the QNX operating system to a particular hardware platform to facilitate the integration and operation of QNX on that platform. setod partners with EKF to provide BSPs for CPU boards.
For real-time communication under QNX, setod offers software stacks for CANopen, J1939 and EtherCAT. All software stacks have been developed with expert knowledge and help to quickly network a QNX system with other components.
In addition to support, consulting and software development, setod electronics also offers comprehensive QNX training and workshops to enable users to understand and effectively utilize the full capabilities of this powerful real-time operating system. The content of each training or workshop is individually tailored to achieve the greatest possible success.
QNX is widely used in safety-critical and time-critical applications, such as automotive, industrial control systems, medical, networking and telecommunications equipment, and aerospace. QNX's high performance and deterministic behavior make it a preferred choice for real-time applications where fast response times and high system reliability are required.
Read our case study from medical technology about the use of QNX and our EtherCAT software stack for master and slave devices and see what benefits and solutions can be realized with it.
QNX is a real-time operating system (RTOS) developed by QNX Software Systems, which has been a subsidiary of BlackBerry since 2010. QNX is based on a microkernel architecture, which makes it a modular, scalable and robust system. This architecture allows a strict separation between the kernel and user processes, resulting in increased stability, security and reliability.
Security: The microkernel architecture, which minimises the attack surface, the low complexity of the kernel, the process isolation and the robust fault tolerance mechanisms make QNX particularly secure. These features, combined with security certifications and features, make QNX a reliable choice for security-critical applications.
Real-time capability: The Priority-Based Preemptive Scheduler and Microkernel architecture allow specific priorities to be assigned to services and processes, resulting in fast responses and precise timing. This ability to meet "hard" real-time requirements is critical for applications where timing precision and reliability are important.
