This year's Bus & Board Conference represents the third time in four years PLX has been invited to present on PCI Express technology at the event.

"PCI Express has made significant strides over the past year, from the refinement of the specification to the formation of vital committees to the growing legion of companies adopting the technology," said Chisvin. "The focus of my presentation at the Bus & Board Conference will be to update and inform attendees and those reviewing the information afterward on this multitude of PCI Express developments, and on what to expect in the coming year."

PLX brings to the Bus & Board Conference a wealth of expertise and rich history in advanced I/O interconnects, including PCI Express. Since 2001, PLX has participated in advancing PCI Express as a standard and is developing devices targeted at the first wave of PCI Express-based systems in 2004. In addition to its own corporate initiatives, PLX is an active member of the PCI Special Interest Group (PCI SIGTM), the organization responsible for the release of all PCI Express specifications; the Advanced Switching Interconnect Special Interest Group (ASI SIG); and the PCI Industrial Computer Manufacturers Group (PICMG®). The company is chairing several subcommittees within the PCI SIG, and co-chaired and edited the AdvancedTCATM (ATCA) 3.4 initiative of the PICMG.
