BlackBerry Launches New Solution to Strengthen Automotive and Embedded Software Portfolio

April 14, 2020 Tiera Oliver

BlackBerry Limited announced the launch of QNX Black Channel Communications Technology, a new software solution that OEMs and embedded software developers can use to ensure safe data communication exchanges within their safety-critical systems. 

QNX Black Channel Communications Technology is certified to ISO 26262 ASIL D, the automotive industry’s functional safety standard, is based on the safe data communication requirements identified in IEC 61508 and mitigation measures defined in AUTOSAR End-to-End communications protection profiles. 

QNX Black Channel Communications Technology makes the nodes of data communication in embedded systems functionally safe. By safely encapsulating the data being exchanged and validating it with essential safety checks, it protects data communication from systematic software faults, random hardware faults, and transient faults while helping in the automatic prevention of damages from these failures, all with minimal impact on system performance.

With the functional safety standard development and certification already done, the solution enables automakers and other embedded software developers to accelerate their development timelines and reduce the cost in moving projects from research to production. 

The solution is scheduled for general availability in April 2020.
