@GSMD: So A3Cube's latency of 100 nanoseconds is the same as SRIO--so why do they bother? Game over for them?

@GSMD: Thanks for sharing your expertise.

As I underdstand it, A3Cube is claiming advances in latency, not necessarily throughput. Their goal is to enable a single system image over a variant of PCIe.

What do you think about their latency claims?

Per the RapidIO website:

"The 10xN specification, backward compatible with RapidIO Gen1 and Gen2 systems, supports 10.3125 Gbaud per serial lane"

The 25GB story is:


"RapidIO specifications are under development to support 25...."


Other interconnects are shipping 25Gbaud Now, and yes IP has been available for years, but never full cores for RapidIO (just thin Phy layers) complete cores are available for FPGA's for interconnects like PCIe and Ethernet.


You may have access to information about roadmaps for Gen 3 RapidIO parts, but the the reality is Infiniband, PCIe and Ethernet are shipping these speeds, and have been for sometime in volume.


In Niche applications the second sourcing may not be a issue, but in volume it is.


Freescale and TI support both PCIe and Ethernet. (and older sRIO) (Gen2)


Per the RapidIO Product showcase last Freescale product for sRIO was 2008

sadly RIO or RapidIO is several signaling generations behind, at 10GB/sec  While others are at 27Gb/Sec  (per pair)  and RapidIO switches are single sourced at IDT.

Can a non-stadard PCIe system interconnect gain much traction?

Why Connect a Car?
May 11, 1pm EDT Monday
Overview: Battle-hardened veterans of the electronics industry have heard of the “connected car” so often that they assume it’s a done deal. But do we really know what it takes to get a car connected and what its future entails? Join EE Times editor Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of movers and shakers in the connected car business. Executives from Cisco, Siemens and NXP will share ideas, plans and hopes for connected cars and their future. After the first 30 minutes of the radio show, our listeners will have the opportunity to ask questions via live online chat.
