Integrated Device Technology Inc. (IDT) has released its new Serial RapidIO Gen2 system modelling tool that enables system designers in the wireless infrastructure, military, imaging, video and storage sectors to optimise the data or traffic that flows through the Serial RapidIO interconnect in a virtual environment before spending critical R&D dollars on physical prototypes.

The IDT Serial RapidIO Gen2 system modelling tool allows designers to virtually create a new Serial RapidIO Gen1- or Gen2-based system. Using Serial RapidIO Gen2 in a design increases the raw bandwidth available in a system and also helps manage congestion while avoiding long-term traffic bottlenecks.

The IDT Serial RapidIO Gen2 system modelling tool supports the IDT Gen1 switches as well as the forthcoming IDT Gen2 switches, allowing current RapidIO customers to investigate how their existing designs can evolve with the new Serial RapidIO Gen2 switches. The system modelling tool also features an update of the IDT GUI, which allows designers and architects to easily visualise traffic patterns in their system. The IDT GUI allows faster and more accurate architectural decision making, helping improve the design of the system and speeding the debugging process.

The new IDT Serial RapidIO Gen2 system modelling tool is currently available and free to qualified customers.
