PLX Expert to Address PCI Express as a Fabric at PCI-SIG Developers Conference
SUNNYVALE, CA and TAIPEI, TAIWAN -- (Marketwired) -- 10/17/13 --
PLX Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: PLXT), the global leader in PCI
Express(R) (PCIe(R)) silicon and software connectivity enabling
emerging data center architectures, today announced that Hung Chi,
PLX(R) field applications director for the APAC region, will present
on using PCIe for rack-level consolidation and convergence into a
single interconnect technology during the upcoming PCI-SIG Developers
Conference Asia-Pacific Tour 2013, in Taipei, Taiwan. Chi's
presentation, titled Implementing Systems using PCI Express as a
Fabric, will cover how ExpressFabric(R) technology eliminates a large
number of expensive bridging devices such as adapter cards that
translate PCIe to InfiniBand, Ethernet or Fibre Channel.
PCIe is well-established as a standard that is already native on
nearly all mainstream data center appliances. ExpressFabric provides
a high-performance, low-latency solution and offers significantly
lower cost and power, with a reduced bill of materials. The
presentation highlights how the universal PCIe standard used in PLX
ExpressFabric technology is earning industry interest as a
complementary fabric to Ethernet within the rack.
The PCI-SIG Developers Conference is designed to help its member
companies develop and bring to market compelling new products
utilizing PCI and PCIe technologies. This year's APAC event brings
workgroup chairs and other PCI-SIG experts to Tokyo and Taipei to
feature the latest series of technical training sessions. This free
members-only event will be the premier technology training event in
