Inactive-Withdrawn Standard

IEEE/ISO/IEC 15205-2000

ISO/IEC 15205:2000 (IEEE Std 1496-1993) SBus -- Chip and Module Interconnect Bus

An input/output expansion bus with a 32-or 64-bit width is described in this standard.The SBus is designed for systems requiring a small number of expansion ports.SBus Cards may be connected to a standard SBus Connector mounted on the motherreboard.SBus Devices may also be attached to the SBus directly on the system's motherreboard.The dimensions of the SBus Card are 83.8 mm by 146.7 mm,making the cards appropriate for small computer systems that make extensive use of highly integrated circuits.The SBus Cards are designed to be installed in a plane parallel to the system's motherreboard as mezzanine cards. They are designed to provide connections for devices external to the computer system through an exposed back panel.The form factor is useful in Futurebus+,VMEbus,desktop computers,and similar applications. The SBus has the capability of transferring data at rates up to 168 Mbytes/s,depending on the implementation options selected. SBus Cards may either serve as Masters on the bus,providing all virtual address information as well as the data to be transferred,or they may serve as Slaves on the bus,providing data transfer according to the require- ments of some other SBus Master.The SBus Master for a data transfer is selected by an arbitration process managed by the single SBus Controller on the SBus.The SBus Controller provides a virtual to physical ad- dress translation service.

Other Activities From This Working Group

Current projects that have been authorized by the IEEE SA Standards Board to develop a standard.

No Active Projects

Standards approved by the IEEE SA Standards Board that are within the 10-year lifecycle.

No Active Standards

These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.

No Superseded Standards

These standards have been removed from active status through a ballot where the standard is made inactive as a consensus decision of a balloting group.

No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards

These standards are removed from active status through an administrative process for standards that have not undergone a revision process within 10 years.

No Inactive-Reserved Standards
