Fabric Embedded Tools Corp. (FET) has acquired the business and operations of Tundra Semiconductor Corp.'s RIOLAB, the world's 'first' RapidIO interoperability testing facility. As part of the transition, RIOLAB will relocate to a new facility in Canada and will resume full operations by the end of the month.

Since RIOLAB's establishment in February 2006, Tundra aims to transition the lab within 12 to 18 months of operation to an independent third-party vendor within the industry. From its inception, FET has contributed its expertise to the development of the lab's interoperability test infrastructure, making the transition a natural evolution for RIOLAB and its customers.

"In starting RIOLAB, Tundra again demonstrated RapidIO leadership, and filled an important need to have an independent test facility focused on device interoperability and specification compliance within the RapidIO ecosystem," said Tom Cox, executive director of the RapidIO Trade Association. "With FET, an expert in the embedded test marketplace, RIOLAB will be well-equipped to continue providing state-of-the-art testing as RapidIO technology continues to be embraced as the standard in a wide range of embedded markets."

Currently, the lab provides tests for device interoperability levels DIL-1, DIL-2 and DIL-3.
