PCI-SIG TO EVANGELIZE PCI-X AT LEADING INDUSTRY EVENTS
Representatives of the PCI-SIG will be speaking at three upcoming industry events - Server I/O, Platform 2000 and DesignCon 2000 - in support of the recently released PCI-X v1.0. With these efforts, the PCI-SIG is continuing its dedication to educating and supporting the industry on the high-speed, backward-compatible I/O solution. The PCI-SIG invites its members to attend these opportunities to learn more about PCI-X technology at some of the industry's leading events.
Following is a list of where you can hear more on PCI-X as well as links to more information on the specific event:Event: Server I/O, Monterey, CA
What: PCI-X tutorial presented by Alan Goodrum of Compaq and Chair of the PCI-X workgroup, PCI-SIG.
When: Tuesday, January 18, 1:30 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
This four hour tutorial will review the current state of I/O in the industry and the driving needs for advancements in I/O technology. The tutorial will examine the overall PCI-X bus architecture in detail and cover key features such as card and system interoperability, protocol, software aspects, performance predictions and electricals.
The Server I/O Conference Series addresses the server, networking, and storage markets from an I/O perspective. For more information on Server I/O (January 17 - 20) and how to register, please visit http://www.sresearch.com/itf/serverio.htm.Event: Platform 2000, San Jose, CA
