QNX Highlights


Ready for certification on mission-critical systems


Ensures system resources are available when needed on Arm Cortex-A cores


Isolates applications, drivers and protocol stacks outside the kernel

Layered Security

Easily configure security profiles with the granularity you need for your systems

A Perfect Combination of Safety-Critical Hardware and Software

One of the greatest strengths of using QNX on Toradex SoMs is the fact that our hardware offerings are perfectly aligned with those of safety-critical systems. The NXP i.MX 8 and i.MX 8X SoCs found on some of our Computer on Modules are safety-certifiable, as are the complete SoMs.
