In the push to set standards for 10 Gbits per second technologies, Agilent Technologies has joined the Unified 10 Gbps Physical-layer Initiative (UXPi), which is promoting a specification for communication architectures that will succeed PCI Express, RapidIO and others. IBM and TI are among those who founded the group last fall. UXPi (www.uxpi.org) competes with the Multi-Level Signaling Alliance, a group that includes Alcatel and Sun Microsystems.
Design teams are operating in a business environment that increasingly requires them to collaborate and share data across extended teams, multiple organizations, and widespread locations.
