The Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) Bus Specification is probably the most successful mechanism for fast communication between peripheral devices and the computer processor in history;it is present inside every modern PC. Originally intended only as a way to connect chips on desktop PC motherboards, PCI quickly acquired connectors to permit users and system integrators to add in "slot cards" to their desktop and industrial PCs. It has become a standard for accommodating multiple high-performance peripherals for graphics, full motion video, SCSI, LAN, etc.
This book is a practical guide to the PCI bus, aimed at hardware and software designers who need to understand the intricacies of its workings. The book covers PCI Local Bus Specification version 2.2 and other recent developments, including the new PCI Hot-Plug Specification, changes to the PCI-to-PCI Bridge Architecture Specification, revisions to the PCI Bus Power Management Interface Specification, and the new features of the PCI BIOS Specification.
Anyone who designs or tests hardware or software involving the PCI bus will find this book a valuable resource for understanding and working with this crucial technology.
