Kansas City, MO - February 27, 2001 - Arcom Control Systems today a development kit featuring the QNX realtime platform (RTP). The kit comes with QNX technology pre-loaded onto the flash-baseddrive of an Arcom Single Board Computer (SBC).
"We have taken the time to match hardware and software so that the engineer can spend their time
developing application code and not worry about the hardware platform and OS
working together," states Frank Pellitta, vice president of sales and
marketing at Arcom.
Based on Arcom's SBC-Geode-GXm SBC, the development kit was created with a
particular focus on the QNX RTP. The SBC-Geode-GXm is a 233MHz
Pentium-performance processor board with standard PC interfaces, including
flash disk, video, Ethernet, USB, touchscreen, audio, serial ports, and a
PC/104-Plus expansion interface.
The kit provides necessary peripheral interface devices to build an
embedded QNX application. The QNX RTOS and the QNX Photon microGUI (core
components of the QNX RTP), as well as the Voyager browser, come
pre-loaded on the Arcom SBC. Also included is a full QNX realtime platform CD and a non-commercial
development license. In addition, the kit contains a PS/2 mouse, connection
cables for VGA or flat-panel displays, serial cable, +5V power supply, and
sample code. An optional NEC 6.5" color LCD module is available.
"We're working closely with communication technology providers like Arcom to
offer 'one stop' solutions based on the QNX realtime platform," said Linda
Campbell, vice president of strategic alliances at QNX. "With these new
Arcom kits, QNX developers get a jump start on their embedded projects - no
need to deal with low-level board issues. You can start prototyping and
developing right out of the box."
The SBC-Geode-GXm Development Kit is available directly from Arcom. The
price is $795 without LCD and $1,345 with LCD.
