Data Exchange Between QNX-based Media Centers and Laptops, Tablets and Desktop PCs Made Easy

FREIBURG, Germany --Paragon Software Group announces the release of Paragon QNX Driver Embedded, the software solving compatibility and interoperability issues between QNX-based in-car infotainment systems and storage devices running on other operating systems, including Windows and Mac OS X. Paragon QNX Driver Embedded is targeted, foremost, towards middleware developers in the automotive industry who want to make the car owner's experience as convenient as possible.

Paragon QNX Driver Embedded enables the sharing of multimedia data between QNX-based media centers and other digital media players and recorders, as well as with laptops, tablets and desktop computers, regardless of which file system they use – ExFAT, NTFS or HFS+. The new technology solves data exchange issues related to use of modern storage devices (for example, SDXC memory cards formatted as ExFAT) and USB external storage (e.g. portable USB hard disks). Paragon QNX Driver Embedded is a file system driver easily integrated into the QNX storage management system with a 10% to 20% better performance than that of the built-in QNX file system drivers (e.g. FAT32), depending on the file system type.

Paragon QNX Driver Embedded is based on the company’s proprietary UFSD cross-platform technology that enables any device to communicate and gain access to storage media regardless of file system type. Already installed in millions of devices, Paragon’s cross-platform tools provide the highest data throughput speeds possible — equivalent to, or exceeding, native performance. Paragon Software’s portal hosts a comprehensive line of essential tools for users of multiple devices on Android, Windows, Mac OS X and Linux who seek to solve incompatibility issues.

Paragon QNX Driver Embedded supports:

• QNX 6.5 and QNX 6.5 SP1
• ARM, x86 platforms
• ExFAT, NTFS, HFS+ file systems
• File system check & repair utilities
• Module size: FS driver – 200 KB for ExFAT, 800 KB for combo (NTFS, HFS+, ExFAT)


The technology is available for licensing. For more details about the new solution and evaluation options, visit the company’s web site at or contact
