First robust POSIX micro kernel goes embedded

Another first leaps out of the QNX stable – a real time microkernel bringing a portable POSIX API, flexible memory protection and a windowing system for deeply embedded products, like hand-helds and embedded PLCs.

Another first leaps out of the QNX stable – a real time microkernel bringing a portable POSIX API, flexible memory protection and a windowing system for deeply embedded products, like hand-helds and embedded PLCs.

Called QNX/Neutrino, the OS is in under 64k of code (how about that?), and it handles everything from core real time services, such as threads, signals and scheduling right up to OS-level services.

Incidentally, there’s also now an Internet Appliance Toolkit from QNX for the Intel EXPLR2 evaluation platform. It’s aimed at letting you build Internet and associated capabilities into embedded products.
