RapidIO Trade Association has completed its newest specification, the Serial RapidIO, for high-performance, low pin-count and switch fabric serial interconnect suitable in backplanes. The Serial RapidIO interconnect is expected to leverage the scalability and reliability of the RapidIO architecture further allowing designers to standardize on a single interconnect technology in networking, telecommunications and other high-performance embedded applications.

The company architected an additional low-power transmission mode not found in the other standards. Additionally, the reliability features of the parallel specification, like hardware error detection and recovery, are natively supported, according to Tom Cox, chairman of the RapidIO marketing working group.
