QNX Rolls Out Technology Development Kits for Embedded Devices

9/15/2004 - QNX Software Systems announced a series of value-added embedded software products that feature royalty-free licensing as standard components. These innovative new product offerings will help QNX customers lower the cost and development time needed to bring embedded devices to market and make it far easier to customize and debug their designs.

The new offerings, packaged as highly integrated Technology Development Kits (TDKs), combine binaries, utilities, tools, and in most cases source code, for value-added QNX software components that provide advanced functionality not supported by conventional RTOSs. Each TDK is packaged as a distinct module, so customers can choose one or many, depending on the features needed in their embedded design.

Designed for use with the QNX® Momentics® development suite Professional Edition, the TDKs are also optimized to take advantage of key features of the QNX Neutrino® RTOS. Each TDK also includes a royalty-free license to distribute specific components for use in OEM devices.

The QNX TDKs available today are:

"With access to source code and royalty-free licenses, QNX customers are well-positioned to meet the increasing market pressures for design excellence and reduced time to market," said Dan Dodge, president and CEO of QNX Software Systems. "We recognize that each customer is unique, and, unlike our competitors' all-or-nothing vertical platform approach, our TDKs allow OEMs to optimize their technology selections for their particular design challenge."

Availability and Pricing
QNX TDKs are available today. Prices start at US$5000 and vary by technology, project and platform usage. For complete information, visit www.qnx.com/products or contact info@qnx.com.
