Motomic Drives Qt Apps on Freescale Kinetis "K" Series MCUs

Motomic Software has announced Motomic Adapter for Qt for Freescale's Kinetis "K" series microcontrollers. Developers can now use the Qt application development framework to create apps for Freescale's Kinetis MCUs running the Freescale MQXTM real-time operating system (RTOS).

A manufacturer of low-power microprocessors, Freescale suggests that the rise of embedded devices in industrial, consumer, automotive, and mobile markets (and the equal increase in connected devices) fuels the need for Qt application development on low-power devices like Freescale's Kinetis, based on ARM Cortex-M4 technology.

"Compared with Linux, MQX provides high performance and real-time determinism and draws significantly lower power, all within a smaller footprint. However, until now there has been no way to develop Qt applications for MQX," says the company.

Motomic Adaptor for Qt for Kinetis is the latest in a series of Motomic adaptors for Qt. It replaces Qt's Linux kernel with MQX, enabling Qt to run on Freescale's MQX RTOS.
