Information Technology -High- Performance Parallel Interface - Framing Protocol (HIPPI-FP) (Revision of X3.210:1992)
Washington D.C., January 1998 - NCITS (National Committee for Information Technology Standards) is announcing the public comment period for NCITS 210:199x. Development of this draft standard is being done in Technical Committee T11, I/O Interface - Device Level.
The public review extends from January 16, 1998 to March 17, 1998.
This American National Standard provides data framing for a high-performance point- to-point interface between data-processing equipment. This standard does not protect against certain errors which might be introduced by intermediate devices interconnecting multiple HIPPI-PHs.
The purpose of this standard is to facilitate the development and use of the HIPPI in computer systems by providing common data framing. The standard provides an efficient framing protocol for interconnections between computers, high-performance display systems, and high-performance, intelligent block-transfer peripherals.
