    The PCI Special Interest Group (PCI-SIG) DevCon Conference was held in Santa Clara, California, on June 28th and 29th. The PCI-SIG DevCon supports the community developing products that include PCIe technology found in servers, network interface cards (NIC), and network attached storage (NAS). More than 730 companies are members of PCI-SIG, and over 100 companies and around 500 people attended this years’ conference. Participants this year included system architects, designers, engineers, and end users who work on PCI technology from companies such as Cadence, Synopsys, Mentor Graphics, Keysight, Teledyne LeCroy, and PLDA.

    We first wrote about P4 (Programming Protocol-Independent Packet Processors) when it was displayed during the Open Networking Summit (ONS) in March (see our Analyst Insight Open Networking Summit 2016: Where Open Source Software Met Programmable Silicon). P4 can be applied to numerous programmable devices including central processing units (CPUs), graphic processing units (GPUs), network processing units (NPUs), ASICs (including networking), and field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). One of the major advantages of using programmable chips for networking is additional protocol compatibility or even adding new protocols; P4 allows packet processors to support new features post-deployment. Consequently, programmable chips also decrease the frequency of hardware refreshes; switch chips based on P4 enable end users to code their chips and reuse the hardware instead of purchasing new switches every few months to support the latest software innovations.
