BlackBerry’s QNX Hypervisor 2.0 for Safety has been recognised as ISO 26262 ASIL D compliant by the independent auditors at TÜV Rheinland, making it the world’s first ASIL D safety-certified commercial hypervisor.

Using the QNX Hypervisor 2.0 for Safety, developers can partition and isolate safety-critical systems (e.g. body domain control) from non-safety critical systems (e.g. infotainment), ensuring that critical systems are isolated and are safely managed in the event of system failure.

“The world’s leading automakers, their Tier 1 suppliers, chip manufacturers and new startups trust our safety-certified and secure software platform as the foundation on which to build the next generation of vehicles,” said Grant Courville, Vice President, Products and Strategy at BlackBerry QNX.

“Gaining ISO 26262 ASIL D and IEC 61508 SIL 3 Certification for our QNX Hypervisor 2.0 for Safety is further affirmation of our leadership position within the industry.”

“Reaching the safety level of ISO 26262 ASIL D for a commercial hypervisor required a strong coordinated effort between the QNX team and our independent assessment team. TÜV Rheinland is proud to be part of this industry-leading accomplishment, helping to bring the highest levels of safety to automotive controllers and other embedded systems that require virtualization,” said Thomas Steffens, Regional Business Segment Manager of the Automation, Functional Safety & Cyber Security division of TÜV Rheinland Industrie Service GmbH.

The ISO 26262 ASIL D safety-certified QNX Hypervisor 2.0 for Safety, in addition to BlackBerry’s full suite of automotive offerings, will be demonstrated at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas from January 7-10, 2020, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Visit BlackBerry at Booth #7515 in the North Hall.
