PCIe uses a dual simplex serial data stream with an embedded clock to overcome many of the performance limitations of parallel bus architectures
SERIAL BUS ARCHITECTURE
: Ultra ATA Bus Architecture
With the new service bus architecture
and open interfaces, our customers can now begin to provision data to other areas of the organization.
The controller supports the fast 133 MHz 64bit PCI-X bus architecture
to deliver maximum data throughput of 3 Gbits/sec per port.
An advantage of SATA's point-to-point architecture over bus architectures
(such as SCSI) is that a unique cable provides connectivity to each drive.
All PCI-based architectures, also know as "shared bus architectures
," are able to handle communications with only one device at any given time, creating contention between network devices.
Other bus architectures
, such as Mercury's Race and Sky's Skychannel, offer good performance but are not scaleable to the levels of RapidIO.
CoWare technologies have been offering solutions to a number of design challenges, such as creating custom processors and processor models with LISATek(TM); defining and evaluating digital signal processing algorithms with SPW; and modeling complex logic functions such as bus architectures
and peripheral IP blocks using ConvergenSC(R).
With AMD's Direct Connect Architecture, the processor cores, memory controllers, and the I/O are directly connected to help eliminate the bottlenecks inherent in traditional front-side bus architectures
Identification and discussion of general dc-dc converter market characteristics, drivers and trends, including discussions of multi-phase dc-dc converters, system bus architectures
, isolation voltages, VRMs, output current trends, and so on.
