Partners Help Developers Build Mission-Critical Applications

BlackBerry and WITTENSTEIN high integrity systems unveil an embedded software platform that enables the development of safety-certified and mission-critical applications on heterogenous system-on-chip (SoC) processors. As safety-critical systems within applications such as cars, medical robots and nuclear power plants become more autonomous, the development complexity increases, requiring a combination of both MCU and MPU-based processors. By integrating the BlackBerry QNX and WHIS operating systems (OSs) and accompanying development toolkits, system designers can now take full advantage of heterogenous multicore SoCs containing application cores and highly-specialized cores in safety-critical systems.


The platform builds on the safety legacy of WHIS’s SAFERTOS, the QNX Neutrino Realtime Operating System (RTOS), and the QNX Momentics Tool Suite to both reduce risk as well as certification costs. The solution enables developers to leverage safe, secure inter-processor communication between QNX Neutrino, QNX OS for Safety and SAFERTOS, and build reliable safety systems. Both operating systems have been certified to ISO26262 ASIL D for Automotive Applications and IEC 61508 SIL 3 levels for Industrial Automation.
