RapidIO Interoperability testing facility RIOLAB has established a Qualified Vendor Program (QVP) to ensure that the lab utilises the most advanced equipment to perform interoperability and specification compliance testing.
Qualified vendors who will participate in the program include Fabric Embedded Tools Corporation (FET), Nexus Technology, Silicon Turnkey Express (STx), and Tektronix. QVP participants have contributed hardware or software and have demonstrated compliance to the RapidIO specification. In addition, these vendors have agreed to work with RIOLAB to provide any upgrades or new products, ensuring that the lab is always using state-of-the-art technology. Tektronix and Nexus Technology are delivering logic analyzers and bus supports, FET is providing software tools, and STx is contributing hardware.
The QVP aims to create a mutually beneficial partnership opportunity for RIOLAB and RapidIO ecosystem vendors. Ecosystem vendors value the opportunity to be showcased within RIOLAB, where they achieve greater visibility of the interoperability of their products and equipment. RIOLAB benefits from the breadth of RapidIO ecosystem participation and products while becoming a world-class testing facility.
Moving forward, RIOLAB is seeking vendors through the QVP to invest in the development of a RapidIO exerciser, otherwise known as a mutant endpoint for Specification Compliance Level (SCL) testing.
