wiki1328: SystemBuilder (Version 4)


As long as QNX Neutrino is essentially an embedded realtime system, the building of an OS image is an important part of the life cycle of application software. System Builder is exactly the tool, which simplifies the job of building OS images for your embedded systems. Besides generating images intended for your target board's RAM or Flash, the QNX System Builder can also help reduce the size of your images (e.g. by reducing the size of shared libraries). System Builder also handles the tracking of library dependencies for you, prompting you for any missing components.


  • Create System Builder project and OS images (IFS) and/or Flash images (EFS) within it
  • Convenient project editing environment
  • Binary inspector which for each selected binary provides
  • Building of binary image
  • Combining image with IPL record and/or with another File Systems (EFS or unbootable IFS)
  • Import/export of mkxfs script files.
  • Automatic optimizing system by excluding not used code
  • Automatic resolving unsatisfied external links (automatic including to image required shared libraries)
  • Loading image to the target via integrated in IDE serial terminal or using integrated TFTP server
