This item was taken from the IEEE Periodical ' HIPPI developments for CERN experiments ' Attention is given to the High-Performance Parallel Interface (HIPPI), a new ANSI standard, using a minimal protocol and providing 100-Mbyte/s transfers over distances up to 25 m. Equipment using this standard is offered by a growing number of computer manufacturers. A commercially available HIPPI chipset allows low-cost implementations. A brief technical introduction to the HIPPI is given, followed by examples of planned applications in high-energy physics experiments, including the developments involving CERN: a detector emulator, a RISC, (reduced instruction set computer) processor based VMEconnection, a long-distance fiber-optics connection, and a HIPPI testbox.<>
