Toradex AG announced that it will offer BlackBerry QNX software and services to its embedded customer base across North America, EMEA, and APAC. Toradex joins the BlackBerry QNX Channel Partner Program, a worldwide network of value-added integrators, distributors, and reseller experts trained on QNX technologies.

Under the agreement, Toradex will support BlackBerry QNX Neutrino RTOS on its Colibri iMX8X and Apalis iMX8X System on Modules (SOMs). This partnership will enable Toradex's customers to build upon BlackBerry QNX's embedded software foundation to develop secure and safety-critical solutions for the domestic and international markets.

Toradex System on Modules (SoMs) are designed for demanding applications in verticals such as healthcare, industrial automation, and transportation. The Apalis iMX8 features the NXP i.MX 8QuadMax applications processor, and the Colibri iMX8X and the Apalis iMX8X are based on the NXP i.MX 8X applications processor. The i.MX 8 and i.MX 8X utilize the 28nm advanced FDSOI silicon process to increase MTBF and decrease soft error rates. All the modules come with Error-Correcting Code (ECC) memory on caches and the Apalis iMX8X also provides ECC RAM. Per the company, ECC memory improves the reliability and simplifies functional safety certifications.
