MAY 9--The PCI Special Interest Group (PCI-SIG) will hold its 2002 North American PCI-SIG Developers Conference June 3-4 at McEnery Convention Center (San Jose, CA). The conference will focus primarily on PCI Express (formerly 3GIO) and PCI-X 2.0, two highly anticipated I/O specifications that are currently under 60-day review by the PCI-SIG membership. Recent significant changes to the PCI Local Bus specification as documented in version 2.3 will also be presented, as well as other PCI technologies such as PCI Hot-Plug.
The PCI Developers Conference is designed to create an immersive and highly technical educational experience covering all aspects of the new specifications, with technical training sessions taught by key individuals involved in the specifications' development. With PCI Express and PCI-X 2.0 on the verge of public release, the conference is a valuable, well-timed event for hardware-design engineers, OS/firmware/device driver developers, engineering managers, and systems architects in all areas of the computing and communications field.
In addition to receiving invaluable in-depth technical training, conference participants will have the opportunity to interact with their peers and customers to discuss issues such as design considerations, standard silicon building block enabling, compliance, and interoperability.
