Tundra Semiconductor Serial RapidIO System Modeling Tool

Tundra Semiconductor introduced their new Serial RapidIO System Modeling Tool. The RapidIO System Modeling Tool enables designers using RapidIO to tap into the high-end features and benefits of RapidIO interconnect. The tool helps OEMs to improve system level performance, optimize architecture, and reduce power consumption. It is ideal for wireless, military, imaging, video infrastructure, and storage applications.

Tundra’s RapidIO System Modeling Tool improves end-to-end packet transfers by modeling not only the switch fabric, but also the behavior of the endpoints in the system, allowing designers to plan and examine the behavior of end-to-end transactions. Desingers can simulate various traffic flows throughout the system to uncover the optimal priorities for system traffic flow performance.

The RapidIO tool enables engineers to simulate the performance of multiple systems reusing a single hardware platform. Modeling more than one end-use application offers OEMs significant cost saving opportunities as designers will have performance insight at the design stage of the project. Re-use of hardware platforms to serve more than one end application will get Tundra’s customers to market faster and with lower bill-of-material cost than their competitors.
