MICRO CHANNEL ID ASSIGNMENT MOVES TO MCDA

 MICRO CHANNEL ID ASSIGNMENT MOVES TO MCDA
 REDDING, Calif., Nov. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- IBM and the Micro Channel Developers Association (MCDA) have agreed to transfer the responsibility of ID assignment to the association. IDs are used to give adapters unique identity on the bus. Since the introduction of the Micro Channel Architecture in 1987, IBM has performed this function. Now that the architecture is an open industry standard, this becomes a natural step.
 "We are very pleased with this agreement. With the ID assignment we also acquired the responsibility for the international catalog of adapters which reinforced our 'one-stop-shop' for Micro Channel," said Ramiz Zakhariya, president of the association.
 "This event marks a milestone in the history of the Micro Channel and the industry as a whole. This event also enforces the fact that the Micro Channel is truly becoming an independent industry standard. The transition was started in early October, and should be completed by year end, at which time developers will have to contact the MCDA to obtain the IDs," added Zakhariya.
 NOTE: The MCDA will be at Fall Comdex, Booth No. 697 LVCC.
