RapidIO Design Summit to take Place in Europe, North America, Asia

The RapidIO Trade Association announced its Fall 2007 Global RapidIO Design Summit schedule, with events slated for Europe, North America and Asia. These highly anticipated events provide engineering managers, system architects, and embedded product developers with practical information on RapidIO technology and products they can utilize now in their production products.

“These summits, developed specifically to illustrate how the embedded design community can achieve improved system performance and reliability with the high-speed, flexible RapidIO interconnect and fabric, are among the most highly attended RapidIO design events held each year,” said Keith Woodard, chairman of the Rapid IO Trade Association Customer Programs sub-committee. “The member companies of the Trade Association are dramatically expanding the presentations and hardware demonstrations this year, with a focus on practical designs and implementations using RapidIO interconnect technology.”

The free, full-day events include two tracks of technical sessions highlighting RapidIO technology, applications examples, software considerations, practical design recommendations, and RapidIO products. In addition, a technology lab will feature multi-vendor RapidIO interoperability demonstrations using state-of-the-art RapidIO products from multiple vendors. Technical personnel from Trade Association member companies will provide a unique opportunity for attendees to interact directly with RapidIO Technology experts and get their specific questions answered. A complimentary light breakfast, lunch and snacks will be provided.
