The PCI bus was designed for high-speed, efficient data movement using the local bus architecture--directly interfacing with the computer's central processing unit (CPU).
This makes it possible to connect the microprocessor to a PCI bus, the type of general purpose bus commonly used in PCs.
The bridge's forward bridging, utilized in the PEX-8111-Bt878 reference platform, enables smooth migration from PCI to PCIe, while its reverse-bridging feature allows a host processor to reside on the PCI bus, preserving designer's legacy hardware and software architectures.
For some, the PCI bus has been a weak link and PCI Express will alleviate their issues with bandwidth and robustness.
In addition, the PCI bus initialization process must frequently be slowed down to allow enough time for an SRAM-based FPGA to be loaded and enumerated.
