IEC 62304-Compliant RTOS for Medical Devices
Page 1 of 1
A new version of the QNX Neutrino RTOS has been developed to help medical device manufacturers reduce the effort of building infusion pumps, patient monitoring devices, blood analysis systems, MRI machines, robotically assisted surgery systems, and other safety-critical products that must pass regulatory approval. The expanded offering will include the new QNX Neutrino RTOS for medical devices to comply with the IEC 62304 medical device standard for software life cycle processes. The company is also offering on-site audits, proven-in-use data, training courses on designing dependable systems and assistance to meet compliancy requirements.
Medical device developers must deal with increased regulatory pressure, increased system complexity and increased connectivity—and yet, they must create systems that remain simple and intuitive to use. Leveraging deep experience in embedded systems for medical devices and other safety-critical applications has enabled QNX to create a suite of products and services, from training to consulting, to facilitate development efforts and to help customers meet compliancy requirements, such as those for the FDA 510k.
The QNX Neutrino RTOS for medical devices is based on the QNX Neutrino RTOS, which has a proven history in medical systems for angiography, blood apheresis, laser eye surgery, hemodynamic monitoring, electrocardiography and anesthesia monitoring.
In addition to the expanded product and services offering, medical device manufacturers can also take advantage of the QNX Momentics Tool Suite, an Eclipse-based development environment with profiling tools designed for gaining maximum insight into software behavior. They can also leverage the wide range of processors, protocols, tools and package solutions available through the extensive QNX partner ecosystem.
