Build robust and modern looking safety regulated projects
KDAB’s experience with QNX software comes from a wide range of successful projects across a number of industries, including automotive systems, safety-critical medical equipment, smart phones and tablets, embedded applications, and more. With our knowledge of the QNX software stack – from low-level BSPs to high-level APIs – we can offer in-depth support for your project.
KDAB’s QNX platform expertise supports you in:
- Application development
As an official QNX partner, KDAB can add software competence and capacity to your project across the entire software stack. We have successfully deployed applications on a variety of QNX-based systems, including the latest QNX SDP 6.6, the traditional QNX SDP 6.5, previous versions of the QNX Neutrino RTOS, and the QNX CAR Platform.
- Modernizing your QNX project
We have unique competence at porting legacy Photon microGUI applications to newer graphical environments supported on the latest versions of the QNX Neutrino RTOS. These provide features that:
- give your application a fluid and high-performing UI with a contemporary look and feel
- benefit from using up-to-date APIs such as OpenGL and Qt
- modernize your codebase to conform to the latest industry standards of cutting edge C++, easing the maintenance process
- Download our Photon to Qt Migration guide…
- Profiling and optimization
KDAB can help you find the right balance between today’s demanding graphical applications and the resource constraints of embedded hardware
- Integrating free software packages
Many QNX components are available for free as are a great number of open-source libraries and packages from the UNIX/Linux world. KDAB’s expertise in porting POSIX code to QNX combined with our ability to properly handle a mix of open source and commercial code, can help you get the most out of each
- Creating multi-platform software
We can help you safeguard your investments with cross-platform development that future-proofs your codebase
- Maintaining your QNX stack
KDAB can help you with BSP, driver, and library customizations for your particular hardware-software combination, even if dealing with custom electronics or no longer supported hardware
Some of KDAB’s successful QNX projects:
Port of Qt to BlackBerry 10
Together with QNX Software Systems, KDAB brought the Qt framework to QNX SDP 6.5 and 6.6, as well as to BlackBerry 10. KDAB is the official maintainer of Qt on QNX and the leading training provider for the BB10 platform Development of in-car infotainment system
KDAB helped create a QNX-based next-generation infotainment system for cars. The project involved developing low-level BSPs for targeted hardware boards, hardware-software interface modules, the main HMI application architecture, and custom tooling for development, debugging, and profiling Nautical infotainment / navigation device demo View the demo… Safety-critical systems KDAB is an ISO 9001 certified company and is experienced in working with safety-critical systems and devices. Our experience spans years of working with QNX architecture and in application development on various QNX platforms where safety is paramount.
KDAB has a long and proven experience in code migrations. Our experts can provide you with recommendations of how to modernize your code base as well as making a fast and safe code migration for you. An existing code base can be a great asset
KDAB expert have supported embedded and desktop customers since 1999. The software architecture of a complex system is where fundamental mistakes easily can be made. Diligent groundwork, to get it right from start, often proves a significant factor in creating better software.
KDAB’s experts help you to improve the performance of the whole stack. To achieve more frames per second, faster boot-up time, improved usage of the CPU(s), memory and/or the battery are some of our normal tasks.
In KDAB we have developed strategies for making your code base more robust and faster without breaking it. Our workshops help you improve your software’s testability and the speed, quality and resilience of your code.
