5 Criteria To Consider When Choosing an OS For Your Medical Device

Get the Whitepaper


One of the most critical decisions you need to make when developing a medical device is what operating system to use. But there’s no one-size-fits-all choice. For example, not every medical device application requires a safety-certified operating system, and for many of those devices, Linux® can be an appropriate option, as can the QNX® Neutrino® RTOS. But for life- or safety-critical embedded systems that must operate without failure, a safety-certified commercial OS like the QNX® OS for Safety may be the better choice.

Learn what the critical considerations are for selecting the right OS by downloading our free white paper, 5 Criteria to Consider When Choosing an OS for Your Medical Device. The paper explores:

  • Safety certification
  • Code traceability and software of unknown provenance
  • OS architectures
  • Cost and time to market
  • Support and licensing
