The powerful SABRE will strike fear into the hearts of automotive competitors with the new Freescale i.MX53 main board and support for the QNX Neutrino RTOS.
If you're looking for power, this platform has it, with a dual core 800MHz Cortex A8. The QNX Neutrino RTOS supports both cores with SMP to maximize application throughput. The board is loaded with a host of interfaces and connectors ideal for advanced automotive infotainment and telematics development: WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, cellular modem, MOST and CAN, tons of audio jacks, terrestrial and satellite tuners, cameras, and displays. Graphics acceleration for OpenGL ES 2.0 and OpenVG round out the offering.
It's been a while since a development board for automotive has had this much power and capability.With QNX supporting this platform at yesterday's unveiling and with the i.MX53 being such a popular chip in automotive, I'm sure we'll be seeing a lot more of it.
