3. Attendance
4. Agenda development
5. Approval of previous minutes - 01-126r0
6. Action item review
7. Administrative structure
8. Presentation Policy
9. Presentations
9.1 Carry over presentations
9.1.1 Cable extraction data, Jie Fan, Umesh, Madison, Seagate bulk cable
round robin 2, RLGC - Bill Troop
9.1.2 Periodic Structures in transmission lines, Larry Barnes, LSILogic
9.1.3 Cable media modeling, Greg Vaupotic, Spectra Strip
9.1.4 Parameter extraction for transition region models, Bob Gannon, JPM
9.1.5 Models for instrumentation interfaces status, Jason Chou, Foxconn
9.1.6 IBIS presentations, Larry Barnes, LSILogic
9.2 New presentations
9.3 Basic Model
	-	Test basic system model - Group - models to Bill Troop
before the next meeting. Larry will correlate the database.

The general idea is for models of each element to be supplied in the
form previously recommended and to actually create an overall integrated
model that will yield waveforms.

Owners for each component were assigned as follows:
Backplane: Database, Molex; Parameter extraction from data base, LSI
Logic (Larry Barnes) or IBM backplane. 
Backplane connector, Molex
Terminators, TI (Paul Aloisi)
Target Board and driver, Seagate (Umesh Chandra)
HBA Board and driver, Adaptec (Richard McMillan) (Umesh backup) - 
Board, Terminator, LSILogic Terminator, Molex connector (IBM Bill Troop)
Cable media, Amphenol Spectra Strip (Greg Vaupotic)
Cable connector, Molex
Overall integration of pieces, Bill Troop IBM and LSI Logic (Larry Barnes)

Define IBIS Driver load for scheduled driver - precomp
