Tundra Semiconductor Corp. has introduced its new Serial RapidIO System Modelling Tool. The new System Modelling Tool allows wireless, military, imaging, video infrastructure and storage OEMs to unleash the full performance potential and features of RapidIO interconnect to enhance system level performance, optimise architecture and reduce power consumption.

Tundra's RapidIO System Modelling Tool improves end-to-end packet transfers by modelling not only the switch fabric, but also the behaviour of the end-points in the system, allowing designers to plan and examine the behaviour of end-to-end transactions.

Customers can simulate various traffic flows throughout the system to uncover the optimal priorities for system traffic flow performance. The new tool allows designers to simulate the performance of multiple systems reusing a single hardware platform. Modelling more than one end-use application offers OEMs significant cost saving opportunities as designers will have performance insight at the design stage of the project. Re-use of hardware platforms to serve more than one end application will get Tundra's customers to market faster and with lower bill-of-material cost than their competitors.

"Customers can now evaluate and compare system architecture performance results against a RapidIO-based architecture, without hardware or software investments. This unique capability offered only by Tundra also provides very early access to Tundra RapidIO Gen2 features, allowing optimisation of upcoming board designs around Tundra's new solutions," said Daniel Hoste, President and Chief Executive Officer, Tundra Semiconductor.
