For a lot of folks, QNX is something new mostly unheard of and as we noted earlier, they work behind the scenes to make cool things we all come across in our daily lives and don't often collect much credit for it. Until BlackBerry acquired the company, a lot of QNX talk was held to the hardcore computer community, BBS boards and even mailing lists but now interest in the organization is growing.

As people become more familiar with QNX and the history, there's more eyes out there looking for information surrounding the company as well and when CrackBerry Forums member, edyb, came across a floppy labeled QNX he decided to fire it up and find out what exactly it contained.

Jul 15, 2014 QNX releases update to QNX OS for Medical

BlackBerry's QNX today announced a new release of its software platform for medical devices that is now IEC 62304-Compliant. The QNX OS for Medical 1.1 is based on QNX OS technology field-proven in an array of systems for angiography, proton therapy, laser eye surgery, hemodynamic monitoring, and other critical healthcare applications. The OS supports both single-core and multi-core devices based on ARMv7 and Intel x86 processors, and it offers API compatibility with other members of the QNX OS family, enabling a high degree of software re-use.

"When it comes to medical device software, the OS sets the tone: unless it provides the architecture to enable reliable operation and a clear audit trail to substantiate claims about its dependability, the entire process of device approval can be put in jeopardy," said Grant Courville, director of product management at QNX Software Systems. "By providing an OS that has been independently verified to comply with the IEC 62304 standard, we are helping manufacturers reduce the cost and effort of developing devices that require regulatory approval from agencies such as the FDA, MDD, and MHRA."

QNX OS for Medical 1.1 is available now and is a component of QNX Software Systems' broader medical offering, which includes proven-in-use data, hazard and risk analyses, on-site audits, training courses in safe design, and professional engineering services. Customers can also choose from a rich of complement of QNX technologies.

The QNX in cars theme is ok, but I would love to read more stories about QNX in other situations like power plants and space shuttles. I feel like I have a good sense of the car story.
