HyperTransport System Architecture provides a comprehensive technical guide to the HyperTransport Technology. It opens with an overview of HT, highlighting features of the technology’s fundamental architecture, including its many advantages over other bus architectures. The book then goes on to detail all facets of the HyperTransport Technology including protocol, I/O routing, configuration and more. In particular, it features important performance related considerations and addresses critical compatibility issues. An entire section provides numerous transaction examples to illustrate the practical application of the HyperTransport Technology. HyperTransport System Architecture provides the authoritative, detailed information required by hardware and software developers, networking professionals and anyone interested in implementing and deploying HyperTransport.

Key Topics:

  • Packet protocol, including control and data packets
  • HT flow control and how it differs from PCI flow control
  • I/O ordering rules: Upstream, Downstream, and Host
  • Interrupts, Error detection and handling
  • HT System Management
  • Routing packets, including the fairness algorithm
  • Configuration and PCI, PCI-X, AGP and X86 compatibility issues
  • The Electrical Environment
  • Network Extensions
  • HyperTransport bridges
  • Double-hosted chains
