SCI Introduction

The Scalable Coherent Interface (SCI) is an ANSI/ISO/IEEE Standard 1596-1992 to enable smooth system growth with modular components from many vendors at 1 GByte/second/processor system flux, distributed shared memory with optional cache coherence, message passing mechanisms and scalable from 1 through 64K processors.

SCI behaves like a bus or a network but uses point-to-point links to achieve higher speed.
