The GRIO (GDA RapidIO) controller IP cores from GDA Technologies Inc. are fully compliant with the Serial and Parallel RapidIO specifications and are targeted for embedded, communications, and networking applications.

The GRIO solution is derived from the RapidIO technology-based controller design licensed from Freescale Semiconductor, a wholly owned subsidiary of Motorola Inc.

"The RapidIO interconnect architecture provides best-in-class features in performance, scalability and reliability, which are fundamental requirements for connectivity in high-speed applications," said Prakash Bare, VP of IP business at GDA. "Our GRIO IP cores provide a set of features and capabilities that will foster new generations of innovative products based on RapidIO technology."

The GRIO IP cores adhere to the latest RapidIO specifications and are available for both ASIC and FPGA implementations. The cores are designed for reuse, and their flexible backend interfaces enable easy integration into wide range of applications. The device's configurable and modular architecture is optimized for latency, reliability, and small silicon footprint and is independent of application logic, PHY designs, and target technologies.

According to GDA, the IP cores optimally support Standard Cell, FPGA and Gate Array, and provide a roadmap to future RapidIO specification revisions.

The RapidIO interconnect architecture is a high-performance, packet-switched, interconnect technology that addresses the embedded industry's need for reliability, increased bandwidth, and faster bus speeds in an intra-system interconnect. It also allows chip-to-chip and board-to-board communications at performance levels scaling to 10Gbps and beyond.

GDA has also announced that it has joined the RapidIO Trade Association and will become an active member of the association in accelerating its global deployment.
