IDT® Mobiveil interoperability to enable the RapidIO 3.1 ecosystem; Mobiveil’s RapidIO Controller Enables SoC, ASIC, and FPGA Designers to Build RapidIO 10xN (Gen 3) 40Gbps End Points to Feed IDT RXS 50Gbps switches
MILPITAS, CA - June 23, 2016 — Mobiveil, Inc. a fast growing supplier of silicon intellectual property (SIP), platforms and IP-enabled design services, today announced that its RapidIO Controller (GRIO) End-Point IP has successfully completed pre-silicon interoperability tests with Integrated Device Technology’s (IDT®) next-generation RapidIO switches. The emerging IoT, wearables, and virtual/augmented reality technologies will demand 5G broadband speed. This will fuel new SoC, ASIC, and FPGA designs for wireless network end points operating at the RapidIO 10xN 50Gbps data rates. Mobiveil’s RapidIO Controller (GRIO) End-Point IP assures designers their chips are compliant to RapidIO 10xN Specifications revision 3.1 and will operate seamlessly with the IDT RapidIO switches.
“We launched our 50Gbps switches early this year to deliver the ultra-low latency, high bandwidth and superior energy efficiency for development of 4G LTE Advanced (LTE-A) and 5G wireless infrastructure systems,” said Sean Fan, vice president and general manager of Computing & Communications Division at IDT of San Jose, Calif. “The 10xN RapidIO switches target mobile infrastructure (base stations, C-RAN, mobile-edge compute); data center (data analytics, high-performance computing); aerospace, industrial control and defense. The new switches can increase existing systems’ aggregate backplane bandwidth and will offer designers and architects a compelling solution for future 5G systems. Mobiveil’s IP provides designers a shorter time to market and assurance their designs will seamlessly work with our switches.”
“We are thrilled to provide SoC, ASIC, and FPGA designers compliant RapidIO 3.1 Controller End-Point IP,” said Ravi Thummarukudy, CEO of Mobiveil Inc. “IDT is a leader in the deployment of RapidIO switch solutions and their latest offering reinforces that role. Our RapidIO 10xN controller IP seamlessly integrating with the 50G switches leverages our strong partnership. Our GRIO IP optimizes link utilization, latency, reliability, power consumption in a compact silicon footprint to serve wireless infrastructure, aerospace, industrial control and server requirements. In addition to the Generic RapidIO controller (GRIO) we also provide a sophisticated AXI bridge for easy integration into customers’ SOC.”
The Market Opportunity
According to market research firm SNS Research of Dubai, UAE, “the wireless network infrastructure market is currently in a phase of transition that is bringing new challenges and opportunities to infrastructure vendors. Mobile operators are expected to significantly increase their spending in the evolving HetNet (Heterogeneous Network) submarket, which encompasses small cells, carrier Wi-Fi, DAS (Distributed Antenna Systems) and C-RAN (Centralized RAN) infrastructure. Small cell and carrier Wi-Fi equipment alone will represent a market worth $3 Billion in 2016. Supplemented further by DAS and C-RAN investments, the HetNet sector is attracting considerable attention from both established vendors as well as startups that solely focus on this submarket.
