RapidIO IP Core Resource Center

Intel provides a range of complete FPGA solutions for the development of custom RapidIO*  processing elements, bridges, and switches.

Intel Offers Two Distinct RapidIO MegaCore Functions

  • RapidIO II MegaCore® function complies with the RapidIO Specification Revision 2.2.
    • Physical, transport, and logical layer separations (modular architecture)
    • IDLE2 sequence - long control symbol
    • 1.25, 2.5, 3.125, 5.0, and 6.25 Gbaud lane rates with 1x, 2x, and 4x link widths
  • RapidIO MegaCore function complies with RapidIO Specification Revisions 1.3/2.1
    • Physical, transport, and logical layer separations (modular architecture)
    • IDLE1 sequence - short control symbol
    • 1.25, 2.5, 3.125, and 5.0 Gbaud lane rates with 1x and 4X link widths

For device support details, such as lane rates, link widths, and speed grades, refer to the RapidIO MegaCore function user guides.

The solutions, which include configurable RapidIO IP cores and development boards, allow you to concentrate on the core functions of the system design by providing:

  • Simple and fast protocol implementation
  • Reduced design risks
  • Shortened development times
  • Platform Designer  for system interconnect
