SOFTWARE TOOLS: Tundra releases its RapidIO System Modeling Tool


Ottawa, Ontario – RapidIO and system interconnect provider Tundra Semiconductor Corp. has just debuted its new Serial RapidIO System Modeling Tool.

It allows wireless, military, imaging, video infrastructure and storage system developers to take full advantage of all of the features of RapidIO interconnect to enhance system level performance, optimize architecture and reduce power consumption.

According to Daniel Hoste, President and Chief Executive Officer, Tundra Semiconductor, the 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.

Developers can simulate various traffic flows throughout the system to uncover the optimal priorities for system traffic flow performance. The new tool, he said, allows designers to simulate the performance of multiple systems reusing a single hardware platform.

“System simulation is a key advantage for RapidIO designers, providing performance and system traffic flow understanding, before hardware investments are made,” said said Tom Cox, Executive Director, RapidIO Trade Association, allowing designers using RapidIO to tap into the high-end features and benefits of RapidIO interconnect, ultimately improving their system design and performance over their competitor's offering.

Tundra's RapidIO System Modeling Tool is offered in conjunction with RapidIO design support. For more information about the System Modeling Tool for your design, go to
