SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 10, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- PLX Technology, Inc.

(NASDAQ:PLXT), a leading global supplier of silicon and software interconnect solutions for the enterprise and consumer markets, today announced it will be presenting at two upcoming conferences focusing on the applications of high-speed interconnect technologies in emerging consumer and industrial markets. Alex Chow and Miguel Rodriguez, PLX(R) senior product marketing engineers, will present at the upcoming Netbook Summit and PCI-SIG Developers Conference, respectively, sharing their expertise on two of the industry's most widely deployed high-speed interconnect technologies: USB and PCI Express(R) (PCIe(R)).

Chow will present Optimizing Netbook Connectivity Features through USB, May 24, 3:10 p.m., in a session that will explain how existing USB technology is providing a new level of performance and features that optimize connectivity on the netbook platform.
