VadaTech selects IDT RapidIO Gen2 switch
Integrated Device Technology has announced that the IDT
CPS-1848 Gen2 RapidIO(R) switch has been selected by VadaTech
Inc for its UTC002 MicroTCA Carrier Hub (MCH) switch cards.
"We're pleased that VadaTech has selected RapidIO
Gen2 and the IDT CPS-1848 switch for its MicroTCA Carrier
Hub and switch card," said Tom Sparkman, vice president
of the Communications Division at IDT. "VadaTech's
selection of IDT RapidIO products is a demonstration of
the market's demand for RapidIO-based 20 Gbps low-latency
switching in MicroTCA systems. It's another example of why
RapidIO continues to thrive in performance-driven markets
where its protocol advantages in peer-to-peer networks offer
a compelling value proposition."
"As a performance extension to our UTC001 RapidIO
1.3-enabled MCH using IDT's CPS-10Q switch, we chose IDT's
CPS-1848 RapidIO Gen2 switch as the interconnect backbone
for the multi-processor systems that our customers need
to support inside MicroTCA systems. IDT's solution provided
low and deterministic latency, low power and excellent software
scalability -- all of which are critical to our MicroTCA
customer base," said Saeed Karamooz, CEO at VadaTech.
"We have been delivering high-quality MicroTCA Systems
to the market with RapidIO 1.3, and moving to RapidIO Gen2
is a natural evolution for our customers. RapidIO allows
them to deliver solutions to the end markets that surpass
anything that is possible with other mainstream embedded
protocols demanded by our MicroTCA customers."
