Tundra Semiconductor Corp. has announced the availability of the Tsi578 Serial RapidIO development platform (SRDP). The addition of this design support tool, using the Tsi578 Serial RapidIO switch, promises customers flexibility and the overall benefit of reducing both their design risk and time-to-market.

This development platform suits a broad spectrum of wireless, video, communications and military products, according to the company, and gives designers the ability to rapidly prototype and test interoperability using the Tsi578 Serial RapidIO switch.

"Using this SRDP, we have accelerated our time to market by commencing early software prototyping," said Joel Rotem, director of technical sales at Mango DSP. "The SRDP's flexibility allows us to partition our system architecture and utilize the Tundra Serial RapidIO switch to optimise data flow between DSPs, microprocessors, FPGAs and ASICs."

Both the Tundra Tsi568A SRDP, launched in July 2005, and the Tsi578 SRDP leverage various standard mechanical connectors, including Advanced Mezzanine Connectors (AMC), SubMiniature version A (SMA) connectors, Hardware Interoperability Platform (HIP) connectors and a 4x I/O differential cable connector. This level and breadth of interoperability enables a degree of flexibility so customers can perform a range of development and diagnostic activities including advanced traffic management, rapid prototyping and interoperability testing.

The Tundra Tsi578 development platform is available from Silicon Turnkey Express. Volume pricing for this SRDP is $3,500.
