The system garnered a reputation for reliability and found itself in use running machinery in a number of industrial applications.
In the late-1980s, Quantum realized that the market was rapidly moving towards the POSIX model and decided to rewrite the kernel to be much more compatible at a low level. During this time Patrick Hayden, while working as an intern, along with Robin Burgener (a full-time employee at the time), developed a new windowing system.
) is a commercial Unix-like real-time operating system, aimed primarily at the embedded systems market.
The product was originally developed in the early 1980s by Canadian company Quantum Software Systems, later renamed QNX Software Systems and ultimately acquired by Black Berry in 2010.
This tight integration between message passing and CPU scheduling is one of the key mechanisms that makes QNX message passing broadly usable.
Most Unix and Linux interprocess communication mechanisms lack this tight integration, although a user space implementation of QNX-type messaging for Linux does exist.
QNX Neutrino (2001) has been ported to a number of platforms and now runs on practically any modern CPU that is used in the embedded market.
This includes the Power PC, x86 family, MIPS, SH-4, and the closely inter-related family of ARM, Strong ARM and XScale CPUs.
Both were convinced there was a commercial need for such a system, and moved to the high-tech planned community Kanata, Ontario, to start Quantum Software Systems that year.
Once configured by the automaker, QNX can be programmed to handoff its display and certain functionality to an Apple Car Play device.
