PCI Power Management



 Price $9.95

by George Willse, Edward Solari, Jim Ewertz

A comprehensive discussion of all the industry standards that affect power management of PCI devices, this book covers not only the hardware specification, PCI Bus Power Management Specification, but also those aspects of the software specification, Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI), and the system specification, OnNow, that establish the framework for managing the power in PCI devices.

From the Publisher
Through PCI Power Management, the authors explain how system components collaborate to cohesively power manage the entire system, an individual bus, or a single PCI function as required for optimal system operation. Though the authors emphasize PCI power management hardware, System BIOS, and Microsoft's ACPI ASL code, PCI Power Management also identifies considerations for operating systems and device drivers.
