Embedded Systems from BlackBerry

Accelerate time-to-market while reducing costs

Mission-critical embedded systems are often required to run 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, without failure. Such systems must be safety-certified, extremely reliable, and highly secure.  

BlackBerry® QNX offers a wide range of safety-certified and secure software products, supported by world-class engineering services, to help embedded developers increase reliability, shorten time-to-market and reduce development cost. 


Industry Markets

Automotive Software

As the automotive industry continues to stretch the boundaries of technology and innovation, new challenges emerge.

  • Automotive software is increasingly complex with over 100 million lines of code
  • Stringent safety certifications are required for mission-critical sub-systems
  • With complex software, and a multi-tiered supply chain, comes greater vulnerability to cyberattacks

BlackBerry QNX has the expertise and the pedigree to address these challenges, and to provide the safety-certified and secure foundational software for autonomous and connected vehicles. 

Supported applications include Digital Cockpits, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), Instrument Clusters, Acoustics, and Infotainment. Products include real-time operating systems, hypervisors, platforms, tool suites, and cryptographic security platforms.
