OTTAWA – Riolab Corp., the world’s first RapidIO Interoperability testing facility, has announced it has established a qualified vendor program (QVP), designed to ensure its newly established lab utilizes the most advanced equipment to perform interoperability and specification compliance testing.
Riolab also announced the first four qualified vendors: Fabric Embedded Tools Corp.; Nexus Technology; Silicon Turnkey Express; and Tektronix. Riolab runs a state-of-the-art independent testing facility that provides device interoperability and specification compliance reporting that meets the needs of silicon vendors and OEMs using the RapidIO interconnect standard.
"The qualified vendor program adds value from every perspective. There is greater participation from ecosystem vendors, Riolab gains access to leading edge products and equipment, and customers of the lab can use and test their products in a real-life setting with state-of-the-art products that are compliant with the RapidIO specification," said Rick O’Connor, chief technology officer at Tundra Semiconductor Corp., the company that launched Riolab last February.
Ecosystem vendors value the opportunity to be showcased within Riolab, where they achieve greater visibility of the interoperability of their products and equipment.
