6th Floor, 200 Victoria St. Carlton VIC 3053

Speakers:

  • Russell Coker, M.2
  • Rodney Brown, CRCs

Russell Coker, M.2

According to Wikipedia M.2, formerly known as the Next Generation Form Factor (NGFF), is a specification for internally mounted computer expansion cards and associated connectors. It replaces the mSATA standard, which uses the PCI Express Mini Card physical card layout and connectors. Russell has been experimenting with M.2 cards for high-speed storage.

Russell Coker has done lots of Linux development over the years, mostly involved with Debian.

Rodney Brown, CRCs

According to Wikipedia, a cyclic redundancy check (CRC) is an error-detecting code commonly used in digital networks and storage devices to detect accidental changes to raw data. Blocks of data entering these systems get a short check value attached, based on the remainder of a polynomial division of their contents. CRCs are popular because they are simple to implement in binary hardware, easy to analyze mathematically, and particularly good at detecting common errors caused by noise in transmission channels.
