Wind River and Digia Collaborate to Extend Qt Commercial Support for VxWorks
Wind River and Digia, Qt Commercial has announced a collaboration to offer broad market availability and primary platform support for the Qt Commercial development framework on Wind River’s VxWorks real-time operating system (RTOS).
Qt Commercial from Digia is a cross-platform user interface (UI) and application framework with tools designed to facilitate the creation and deployment of applications for desktop and embedded platforms.
Through this relationship, companies will have access to Qt Commercial validated and tested with VxWorks. In addition, customer-focused research and development, expert support, services and training, as well as exclusive licensing rights for Qt Commercial will be available from Digia. This will allow developers across a wide range of market segments including industrial, medical, and aerospace and defense to design and deploy rich UIs using the Qt development framework running seamlessly on VxWorks.
The Qt Commercial development framework in combination with VxWorks will enable companies to expedite graphical user interface (GUI) development and standardization across projects, revisions and organizations within the enterprise. In addition, it will enable the users of VxWorks to create differentiated and user-appealing devices with advanced interactive GUIs and added support for 3D and 2D graphics through OpenGL ES and OpenVG. This will allow for specialized applications to include flow and process visualization as well as medical imaging and animation for embedded devices.
Qt Commercial support will be offered on VxWorks 6.9 and subsequent versions, and will be available on selected Intel, Freescale and Texas Instruments platforms. Qt Commercial support for VxWorks will be available in a beta version based on the Qt Commercial 4.8.1 release.
Digia will be demonstrating Qt UI applications running on VxWorks platforms at Embedded World 2012 in Hall 4, booth No. 4-405.
