Tundra Semiconductor Corp.'s new Tsi564A serial RapidIO switch promises to deliver the performance, power and configurability that enable embedded designers to build reliable, high performance communications systems for a broad spectrum of telecom, video, imaging and networking applications.

With a smaller footprint than the company's previous serial RapidIO switchthe tsi568a, the Tsi564A offers low power, multiple port-widths and speed configurations, making it suitable for applications where power, cost and board space are primary concerns. This switch interconnects serial RapidIO enabled processors and peripheral devices, supporting an aggregate bandwidth of 40Gbps.

"By introducing a lower cost, smaller footprint switch backed by our industry leading support tools, we are demonstrating our continued commitment to enabling our customers' success in advanced System Interconnect," said Rick O'Connor, CTO and VP of Product Management at Tundra. "We [Tundra] continue to develop System Interconnect products that build on our innovative switch fabric technology, providing increased performance and configurability not feasible with proprietary bus-based architectures."

RapidIO, the leading interconnect standard for embedded systems, addresses the embedded industry's requirements for complex systems, high reliability and increased bandwidth, in intra-system interconnect.

The Tsi564A will be available through the company's worldwide sales network sometime this month.
