Tuxera releases Tuxera exFAT file system for the QNX Neutrino RTOS, bringing SDXC compatibility to the automotive industry.

HELSINKI, FINLAND – September 22, 2010 – Tuxera Inc., the leading provider of interoperable exFAT and NTFS file systems, today announced that it has ported its exFAT and NTFS file systems to QNX Software Systems Co.’s QNX® Neutrino® RTOS, the leading operating system for in-car infotainment and telematics systems.

Tuxera also announced that the read-write Tuxera exFAT file system for the QNX Neutrino RTOS is now available for immediate deployment. Tuxera NTFS for the QNX Neutrino RTOS was released previously.

Tuxera’s interoperable file system solutions bring seamless plug-and-play interoperability to demanding audio and video applications. For example, in the automotive industry, manufacturers are adding USB and SD memory card interfaces to infotainment systems. NTFS support is needed if a consumer wants to plug in a portable Windows-formatted hard drive over USB. And exFAT support is needed if a consumer wants to plug in a next-generation SDXC memory card that is 64GB or higher.

“This initiative allows customers using the QNX Neutrino RTOS to read and write exFAT and NTFS formatted drives safely and effectively,” said Mikko Valimäki, Tuxera CEO. “QNX Software Systems’ customers are among the first to have the option to utilize Tuxera’s field-tested and high-performance interoperable file system solutions – with less time, cost, and hassle.”

“Device connectivity and interoperability are key requirements for the in-vehicle systems that our automotive customers are implementing today and developing for the future,” said Leo Forget, product manager at QNX Software Systems. “Tuxera’s offering is a valuable addition to QNX Software Systems’ automotive ecosystem and its expertise in exFAT technology is a key component that enables us to provide a best-of-breed solution to our automotive customers.”

Tuxera NTFS and exFAT for the QNX Neutrino RTOS are now available for evaluation. Please contact for more details.
