SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BAE Systems and Integrated Device Technology, Inc.® (IDT®) (NASDAQ:IDTI) today announced a new technology for space applications that will transfer greater volumes of data at higher speeds than ever before possible during space missions. BAE Systems’ new space-grade microchip, known as the RADNET1848-PS space-grade RapidIO switch, will use the market’s first RapidIO interconnect to speed massive amounts of data through a network of radiation-hardened computer systems in outer space.

“As the capabilities and benefits of RapidIO are increasingly recognized, its role in high-volume Earth-based applications—such as wireless communications and Big Data analytics—will only continue to grow.”
