Oh darn, I almost forgot! If you’ve enjoyed my live shows, I mean presentations, mark your calendars for Tuesday August 27th at 9am Pacific and head on over to http://seminar2.techonline.com/registration/wcIndex.cgi?sessionID=synopsys_aug2713 along with two or three hundred of your closest friends and sign up for my first ever attempt at a webinar.
I was in Los Angeles, California visiting a friend that has been working in the movie business and it reminded me about the videos that we shot at PCI-SIG of the M-PCIe demos. After doing a few short videos over time, I have a whole new respect for the actors and actresses that make movies. It’s not as easy as it seems. At the beginning of the video “Industry’s First GEAR3 M-PCIe and M-PHY Demo”, I’m shrugging my shoulders after being told to loosen up and they caught that on tape and it’s now part of our demo. I have a hard time believing that was the best take and I’m going to have a conversation with the editing department! You should see the blooper reel they made as they turned this into a dancing Scott. Scary, very scary.
In my last post, I discussed highlights from the recent 2013 PCI-SIG Developer’s Conference including PCIe 4.0, OCuLink and M-PCIe. I also provided information on the world’s first M-PCIe interoperability demo, which showcased M-PCIe solutions from Intel and Synopsys working together. I concluded with the promise of information on the second M-PCIe demo from Synopsys and more information on M-PCIe.
I’ve just spent the last couple of days at PCI-SIG’s DevCon and all I can say is WOW! I’ve been working with PCIe since 2003 and have been to every PCI-SIG Developer’s Conference since then. I don’t recall there ever being one with such a high level of excitement and large attendance as this one. I’m sure this DevCon had record attendance.
