Serial RapidIO distributed switch device for VME systems.
Thales' Dual 1 GHz 74587 SBC (PowerNode3) interconnects through a PMC-RIO serial RapidIO switch fabric PCI mezzanine card to allow the end-user to interconnect computing nodes all together inside a signal processing calculator. The Serial RapidIO technology is said to reduce pin counts while staying full duplex, and it provides a low latency packet-based interconnect data push. Additionally, the technology offers a high degree of error management and a desirable architecture for reporting, and recovering from, transmission errors. PMC-RIO mezzanine provides its own distributed switch that prevents any system single point of failures. Thales' Serial RapidIO switch fabric allows an aggregate throughput of up to 1.6 GB/s, owing to the 400 MB/s sustained link bandwidth (peer to peer).
