With the continuous development of various high-performance computing systems,the impact of the data transmission on the overall performance of the system is more and more important.RapidIO is a packet-based interconnect architecture: an open interconnect technology standard that meets the needs of a variety of high-performance embedded systems. This thesis briefly introduces some basic concepts of RapidIO and the status of 10 Gigabit Ethernet,and then illustrates RapidIO network and 10 Gigabit Ethernet data transmission process. In that some real-time data needs to be transmitted between 10 Gigabit Ethernet and RapidIO networks,and an idea of gateway design based on data conversion between 10 Gigabit Ethernet and RapidIO networks is proposed. On the hardware platform,making full use of all resources to design and implement the 10GE-RapidIO protocol conversion gateway software system,and using IP-over-RapidIO technology to encapsulate Ethernet packets into the RapidIO packet Ethernet packets in the RapidIO network transmission can help achieve 10 Gigabit Ethernet and RapidIO network interconnection. This approach allows users to further focus on the application development and not to focus too much on complex system technical details. Finally,the design of gateway can be verified practically via establishing experimental platform and completing the experiment.
