PLX Technology NASDAQ: PLXT is an integrated circuit company based in Sunnyvale, California. It supplies system-interconnect silicon-based semiconductors and firmware for the enterprise communications, storage, server, computer, embedded-control, and consumer storage markets. PLX serial protocol solutions include technology based on 10 Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express, USB, SATA, and FireWire.
FastLane PCI 6000 series bridges allow more devices to be attached to the Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) bus, and provide the ability to include intelligent adapters on a PCI bus. The PCI 9000 Series provide bus bridges for bothTargets and Masters. The ExpressLane PCI Express (PCIe) product family offers configurable switches and bridges.
The NetChip Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controllers, acquired by PLX and now identified as a product family, are used in printers, portable media players, GPS systems, TV tuners, PCs, laptops, notebooks, netbooks, WLAN devices, mobile phones, digital cameras and camcorders.
PLX, through its acquisition of Oxford Semiconductor in January 2009, designs and manufactures Network-attached storage (NAS) and Direct Attached Storage (DAS) hardware and firmware for consumer storage.
