An interface that amounts to a complete expansion bus, into which you can plug devices such as hard disk drives, CD-ROM drives, scanners, and laser printers.
Abbreviated to SCSI. An interface standard used for computer peripherals, such as scanners, hard disk drives, and CD record-ers, that supports high-speed transfers over a common bus for up to seven devices per host adapter.
An interface designed for connecting disks and other peripheral devices to computer systems. SCSI, pronounced "skuh-zee," is defined by an ANSI standard and is used by many computer and peripheral vendors throughout the industry.
A standard set of interfaces and protocols for attaching a myriad of devices and peripherals to a microcomputer. First developed by Apple for their Macintosh line of computers, this technology has also been widely used in the PC market. SCSI, pronounced "scuzzy", is actually a type of add-on peripheral bus.
A parallel interface that provides fast data transmission.
A peripheral interface that is used to connect devices to a computer.
A specification for a high-performance peripheral bus and command set. The original standard is now referred to as SCSI-1.
a standard for connecting high-speed intelligent peripherals, such as disk or tape drives, to computers.
interface consisting of a standard port between a computer and its peripherals that is used in some computers
An interface between a computer and peripheral controllers. Commonly used in enterprise computing and in Apple Macintosh systems. Usually pronounced as "scuzzy." The equivalent interface system in most personal computers is Enhanced Integrated Drive Electronics, usually called EIDE.
An industry-standard interface between computers and peripheral devices.
A set of evolving standard electronic interfaces that allow personal computers to communicate with peripheral hardware such as disk drives, tape drives, CD-ROM drives, printers, and scanners faster and more flexibly than previous interfaces.
An input and output bus that provides a standard interface for the attachment of various direct access storage devices (DASD) and tape drives to the RS/6000.
A standard high-speed parallel interface defined by the X3T9.2 committee of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). A SCSI interface is used for connecting microcomputers to peripheral devices, such as hard disks and printers, and to other computers and local area networks.
Commonly refered to as SCSI, is an industry standard I/O bus for high speed data transfer.
A disk drive control technology in which a single SCSI adapter circuit card plugged into a PC slot is capable of controlling as many as seven different hard disks, optical disks, tape drives, and so on.
A standard hardware interface that enables a variety of peripheral devices to communicate with one another.
The technology that connects various devices to PCs using a SCSI card that fits inside a computer.
A protocol for connecting devices from several classes of peripherals to a host system without requiring modifications to hardware and software.
(SCSI) An interface type for computer adapters & controller boards.
A storage command protocol separate from ATA, but commonly used by ATA to communicate with CD-ROM and DVD-ROM drives.
An industry standard for connecting peripheral devices and their controllers to a PC. SCSI can be used to attach scanners of any speed.
A parallel interface standard for attaching peripheral devices to computers. It provides for faster data transmission rates than standard serial and parallel ports (up to 80 megabytes per second).
An industry standard parallel data bus that provides a consistent method of connecting computers and peripheral devices.
pronounced “scuzzy”] A type of interface between computers and peripherals that allows faster communication than most other interface standards; often used to connect PCs to external disk drives.
also known as "skuzzy", is a method of connecting devices to a computer such as hard drives and CD-Roms
(SCSI, pronounced "scuzzy") An interface that allows up to seven peripheral devices to be linked to a single controller. It is a standard method for connecting peripheral devices (such as printers, scanners and CD-ROM drives) to a computer. A group of peripherals linked in series to a single SCSI port is called a daisy-chain.
A standard high-speed parallel interface defined by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). A SCSI interface is used for connecting microcomputers to peripheral devices such as hard disks and printers, and to other computers and local area networks (LANs).
