PLX Joins Intel Development Network for PCI Express Technology

9/12/2002 - PLX Technology announced that it has been named a member of the Intel® Developer Network for PCI Express Technology. PLX, a leading supplier of high-speed interconnect silicon to the communications industry, joined the Developer Network to lend the company's considerable input/output (I/O) expertise and help advance the PCI Express interconnect specification in communications systems based on Intel architectures.

The Intel Developer Network for PCI Express Technology provides a web-based community and environment where developers can obtain information, tools and technical support to further their development plans of PCI Express products on Intel-architecture platforms. Members receive early release of tools, design collateral materials and other enabling elements.

PLX is among the industry's first suppliers to announce support and development effort for PCI Express technology, and was a key developer of the PCI Express specification. The company announced in August that it will deliver PLX® PCI Express silicon in 2003. Additionally, PLX is currently working closely with the working groups defining the Advanced Switching extension of the PCI Express architecture — a proposed superset of the core specification that would provide essential features for storage and communications applications.

"Becoming a member of the Developer Network signifies another step in PLX's continuing success in defining and developing PCI Express interconnect solutions," said Michael Sarpa, product marketing manager at PLX "This success, coupled with our ongoing collaboration with members of the PCI Express working groups, will help assure a complete interconnect solution for next-generation applications."

"PLX Technology brings crucial interconnect expertise to PCI Express technology, the Intel Developers Network and its fellow members," said Jason Ziller, technology initiatives manager, Intel Corp. "PLX is making a significant contribution to the rapidly advancing PCI Express architecture and to systems designers who will develop products based on the specification."
