PLX Webcast - Designing for Performance Using PCI Express Technology

2/24/2003 - PLX Technology (NASDAQ: PLXT,, a leading supplier of high-speed I/O interconnect silicon to the server, communications, storage, industrial control, test equipment and imaging industries, will present "Designing for Performance Using PCI ExpressTM Technology," an in-depth TechOnline ( Webcast on Tuesday, Feb. 25, 2003, at 10:00 a.m. (PST).

This presentation will provide system architects, design engineers and software developers with real-world guidance on how to create systems based on PCI Express technology. The one-hour technical Webcast discusses the PCI Express design and architecture considerations needed to optimize performance, as well as detail tangible methodologies to leverage system efficiency, scalability and performance features inherent to this new protocol. At the end of this one-hour presentation, the audience should understand:

"This TechOnline Webcast represents a tremendous opportunity for engineers to learn more about the PCI Express architecture," said Danny Chi, a PCI Express manager, at PLX. "The Webcast, which is the second in a series of PLX PCI Express presentations, is ideal for those architecting next-generation systems and who need to better understand the intricacies of the PCI Express specifications and their impact on system performance."

The first PLX TechOnline webcast was broadcast on Oct 29, 2002 entitled "Communications Applications of PCI Express with Advanced Switching" and co-sponsored with Intel Corp.

Industry Expertise Brought to TechOnline Series
PLX is bringing to the TechOnline series its considerable expertise in PCI Express technology. PLX is driving the PCI Express technology adoption through its participation in leading industry organizations including the PCI Industrial Computer Manufacturers Group (PICMG® and the PCI Special Interest Group (PCI SIG®. As co-chair of the PICMG 3.4 committee and co-editor of the 3.4 specification, PLX is leading the effort to incorporate PCI Express on the AdvancedTCATM chassis. As an active PCI SIG member, PLX has contributed its expertise to the development and the release of the PCI Express Base specification. In addition, PLX lends its extensive interconnect knowledge to the Bridging and Advanced Switching working groups, which are responsible for the PCI Express technology specifications currently under development. As a result, PLX products not only comply with PCI Express protocols, but also can be easily implemented in server, communications, storage, industrial control, test equipment and imaging applications. PLX recently announced its broad PCI Express silicon family, based on the PLX® BulletTrainTM architecture.
