Description

The peripheral component interconnect (PCI) bus is the dominant bus system used to connect the different elements making up today's high-performance computer systems. Different PCI implementations have also been developed for such applications as telecommunications and embedded computing. If an application calls for high speed, high reliability, flexible configuration, and bus mastering, then PCI is the only logical bus choice. This book is an applications-oriented introduction to the PCI bus, with an emphasis on implementing PCI in a variety of computer architectures. Special attention is given to industrial and mission-critical applications of PCI bus.

Key Features

  • Fully describes PCI electrical specifications, mechanical requirements, and signal types
  • Covers advanced topics through numerous design examples to increase the readers understanding of the subject
  • Includes updated coverage of PCI-X 2.0

Readership

Hardware engineers involved with the design of microprocessor-based systems or the peripherals that connect to such systems

Reviews

"All aspects of PCI design and standards are examined, including hot-plug and hot-swap support, "plug and play" operation, and PCI BIOS support. Overall, the topics are presented well and useful for learning and reference purposes... enough technical detail to impress PCI interface designers and simple enough to enlighten engineers and programmers acquainted with the PCI bus from plugging in a few PCI adapters." --ELECTRONIC DESIGN

"In addition to encompassing a wealth of knowledge, this book is full of helpful diagrams, charts, and illustrations that give the reader a visual reference along with the text. PCI Bus Demystified should not be overlooked" --CompactPCI Systems May/June 2004

"PCI Bus Demystified is an excellent text that includes all aspects of PCI design and is written with focus on both hardware as well as software designers. The book is organized in a thorough introduction to PCI and PCI-X and is divided into two parts. First part is an introduction to the basic concepts of PCI and second part is related to PCI-X...This book is a useful introductory book for PCI and PCI-X...Most of the chapters include liberal amount of figures and tables that make the book easy to understand." --E-Streams, Vol. 8, No. 3, March 2005
