infoteam and QNX®

In 2016, China's automation control software market will have a major change - infoteam will work with QNX to set up a QNX China technical service support center in Beijing. Infoteam and QNX will carry out in-depth cooperation in various fields:

Railway - QNX launched the first real-time operating systemwhich can help the railway manufacturer to complete the product safety and information security certification. Certified Plus™help customers save time and costto authentication terminal products--QNX Neutrino real-time operating system (RTOS) Certified Plus™ is afirst real-time operating system who can provide products with security and information security authentication at the same time. It could serve the manufacturer who are make automatic train protection system (ATPs), signal control system, subway control center, locomotive control system, and other mission critical railway application.Certified Plus™is the only real time operation system who can achievethe whole safety integrity level three certification (SIL 3) of IEC 61508, and standard ISO/IEC 15408 level fourth (EAL 4) certification at the same time.

infoteam is a software company which supply the technology support and solution of embedded technology, and the engineers of Infoteam has 8 years experience for using the QNX. In 2013, infoteam helps MEN to make a MTCS which based on the QNX and according the railway EN50128 standard.

MTCS is a platform designed for safety-critical train applications like train control, automatic train operation (ATO), automatic train protection (ATP), and positive train control (PTC)/enhanced train control (ETC). These applications range in certification requirements from ATO typically at a EN 50128 SIL2 level to signal interlocking requiring a EN 50128 SIL4 certification. Available in an EN 50128 SIL 4 pre-certified configuration, the MTCS provides safe control of single functions as well as for complete train control. By changing its configurable setup, the MTCS can control anything in the train that requires functional safety - under SIL 4, SIL 3 or SIL 2 requirements. MTCS is developed according to EN 50128 and EN 50129 standards.

infoteam have rich experience in the field of embedded control, and has rich experience in using QNX. Infoteam and MEN finished the design of overall framework together. Based on the hardware which MEN implemented, Infoteam implemented the custom development for BSP, the design of control process of the system etc.

The power industry - They all need the high performance and strong real-time controller in the part of electric power, for example, the DCS of power plant, High voltage DC and flexible HVDC, intelligent substation and so on. QNX can meet the needs of customer about RTOS, however, Infoteam has more than 10 years of experience and customers in the Power Industry. Infoteam has made a plan that implement in-depth technical exchanges and cooperation with QNX company.

The custom development of BSP - The QNX supports two processor architecture, ARM v7 and X86. The engineers of Infoteam have rich experience for using the kinds of chips, so we can custom develop the BSP according to the difference of the hardware and the actual needs, simplify customer development process, reduce customer development costs and improve customer project schedule.

Solution Service - infoteam has a wealth of practical experience in Power Industry, so we can help customers for resolving the actual requirement and actual problems by custom the solution and service. Our services include providing custom development, technical advice and solution design and professional training, etc.
