First-person observation[edit]

As one of the members of the original working group, I can confirm that 1355 was indeed derived from the chip-to-chip serial interfaces of the Transputer. These were always asynchronous, however, to avoid clock distribution problems in potentially large parallel processing systems. PThompsonBristol 13:08, 13 June 2007 (UTC)

OK, but best would be to cite some source for this so independent editors can verify. W Nowicki (talk) 17:37, 13 September 2011 (UTC)

Tone[edit]

Could an expert on the subject matter please give this article some TLC? There seems to be a preponderance of subjective opinion in the article, none of which belongs. I've added an "inappropriate tone" tag. Ayengar 17:35, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

This is the first I heard of the protocol, but can at least do some quick work to bring it in line with other networking articles. One issue already is that it seems to spell the name with a dash "IEEE-1355" but I believe the official spelling would be "IEEE Std 1355-1995", that is, the dash goes before the date of the issue of ratified standard.
