Texas Instruments has become a member of the RapidIO trade association steering committee.
The company will help drive technical standards in the signal processing sector in a bid to make RapidIO the high-speed embedded interconnection technology of choice.
"RapidIO meets the performance, reliability and interoperability requirements of next-generation embedded digital signal processing applications such as wireless infrastructure communication systems," said Dave Shepard, general manager for Texas Instruments' wireless infrastructure products.
Sam Fuller, president of RapidIO: "Texas Instruments' participation at the steering committee level clearly demonstrates the momentum behind RapidIO and will accelerate its global deployment."
Texas Instruments joins more than 50 companies in the association and will sit on the committee alongside Alcatel, EMC2, Ericsson, IBM, Lucent, Mercury, Motorola and Tundra Semiconductor.
