SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 6 -- Applied Micro Circuits, IBM, Infineon Texas Instruments and Xilinx announced today the creation and promotion of the Unified 10 Gb/s Physical-Layer Initiative (UXPi), a program organized by the The Industry Standards and Technology Organization (ISTO), part of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Enginee (IEEE).

UXPi will advocate a common 10 Gb/s physical-layer standard to simplify and accelerate the implementation of next-generation 10 Gb/s systems; the group said it will complement other standardization efforts, such as those of the Optical Internetworking Forum (OIF).

"10Gb/s interfaces will form the basis for future high-bandwidth connections in chip-to-chip, chip-to-optical module and backplane applications," said Joe Berthold, president of OIF. "As a leader in the standardization of interfaces, OIF supports the expansion of interoperability benefits."

UXPi plans to work with numerous companies to develop, refine and make the specification available.
