How does the interoperability help in wireless infrastructure applications?
Tundra Semiconductor and RMI Corporation, a provider of processors for media rich applications, have announced the interoperability of Tundra’s Tsi578 Serial RapidIO switch with RMI’s high-performance multi-core multi-threaded XLS processor.
According to RMI, by using the Serial RapidIO Development Platform (SRDP), that includes the Tsi578 RapidIO Switch, with RMI’s XLS processor evaluation platform, Tundra and RMI have completed testing for interoperability between their two products.
The testing validates that the Tsi578, with multi-cast capability, and RMI’s multi-core and multi-threaded XLS processor are interoperable and can be deployed as a turnkey solution in wireless infrastructure applications such as WiMAX, WCDMA, TD-SCDMA, and LTE.
Tracy Richardson, vice president of marketing at Tundra Semiconductor, said: The successful interoperability testing between Tundra’s Tsi578 and RMI’s XLS processor offers a high performance processor/switch option for wireless infrastructure OEMs Designers of these systems can be confident that this solution can be designed-in efficiently and will deliver the reliable performance and throughput required to get their systems to market faster.
Mark Litvack, director of business development at RMI, said: RMI is excited to have successfully completed our interoperability testing with the Tundra Tsi578. This will provide existing and new XLS customers the assurance that new designs using both devices can be implemented quickly and reliably, to offer the highest performance for wireless infrastructure designs. With no additional bridge logic between the XLS processor’s RapidIO interface and Tundra’s RapidIO switch, our customers are guaranteed a dependable, ready to implement solution.
