PLX Expert to Address PCI Express as a Fabric at PCI-SIG Developers Conference Asia-Pacific Tour

SUNNYVALE, CA and TAIPEI, TAIWAN--(Marketwired - Oct 17, 2013) - PLX Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: PLXT), the global leader in PCI Express® (PCIe®) silicon and software connectivity enabling emerging data center architectures, today announced that Hung Chi, PLX® 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® 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 Asia for systems architects, designers, engineers and engineering managers.

The PLX presentation will take place in the members implementation track, Tuesday, Oct. 22, 3:30-4:30 p.m., at The Westin Taipei, 133 Nanking East Road, Section 3, Taipei, Taiwan.
