Xilinx, Motorola collaborate to develop RapidIO

Xilinx and Motorola are collaborating to develop RapidIO interconnect architecture to provide solutions for users who are building the new class of broadband equipment.

Motorola and Xilinix are planning to work together on a next-generation interconnect architecture

SINGAPORE - Xilinx has announced a collaboration with Motorola, Inc. for the product development of the emerging RapidIO interconnect architecture.

The collaboration will enable Xilinx to deliver fully compliant RapidIO solutions for users who are building the new class of broadband equipment.

Motorola will use Xilinx Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) that incorporate RapidIO intellectual property, or cores, for future Motorola products that would require RapidIO technology. At the same time, Xilinx will use the bus functional models developed by Motorola for Xilinx RapidIO cores in its Virtex-II FPGAs. The bus functional models are software modules used to test the functionality of a RapidIO solution.

RapidIO technology is a next-generation, packet-based, switched-fabric interconnect architecture for embedded systems that is used for both high bandwidth and low latency. Initial implementations are expected to exceed 1.0 Gbyte per second throughput based on clock rates of 250 MHz and higher.
