Streaming data from various video and audio sources are now commonplace on desktop machines, and there is no baseline support for this time dependent data within PCI or PCI-X
Today at the Embedded Systems Conference Boston 2004, SBS Technologies (Nasdaq:SBSE) continued its role as PCI expansion market leader by introducing the first expansion systems to take advantage of the speed of PCI Express for existing PCI-X
and PCI cards.
The server uses another PCI-X
bus to host a network controller that could support an Ethernet, iSCSI, Fibre Channel (FC) or custom bus.
With the myriad PCI and PCI-X
products and vendors active in the market, designers can get overwhelmed by the seemingly countless interoperability scenarios for boards and systems," said Steve Moore, senior product marketing manager at PLX.
The PEX 8104 can also operate in reverse bridging mode, a feature which PLX has pioneered in the PCI Express architecture, enabling the ever-expanding number of native-mode PCI Express chips to bridge back to the PCI-X
PCI-SIG, PCI Conventional, PCI-X
and PCI Express are trademarks or registered trademarks of PCI-SIG.
The PCIX board serves a dual purpose, both as a platform for verifying PCI-X
cores and as a direct connection between a HAPS system and a PCI/PCI-X
The design kit will include an Avnet Virtex-II based Development Board, the Xilinx PCI-X
IP Core and the Jungo WinDriver driver development tool for PCI devices.
PLX has been a long-time, active participant in the PCI Special Interest Group, the organization responsible for the PCI, PCI-X
and the PCI Express specifications.
Each was designed to provide differentiated system level benefits for designers needing to migrate their platform to the PCI-X
The PCI-SIG(TM), the Special Interest Group responsible for PCI-X
(TM), PCI Conventional(TM), and PCI Express(TM) industry-standard I/O technologies, today announced that compliance testing for PCI-X
