Female slots located on the motherboard into which the male pins of an expansion board fit.
Slot-like openings in a personal computer into which controller cards (circuit boards), such as CD-ROM disc player controller cards, can be plugged to add functions to the original equipment. For example, the IBM PC/XT/AT and compatibles contain both long slots for 13-1/8" long cards, and short slots for 4-3/8" long cards. (7/96)
Slots within the processing component of a microcomputer into which optional add-on circuit boards may be inserted.
One of the connectors on the expansion bus that gives an adapter access to the system bus. The amount of additional adapters that one may add is determined by how many expansion slots are inside your computer.
Physical slots on some handheld computers that can be used for extra memory, a digital camera, electronic book cards, Margi-Presenter-to-go etc.
Electrical connector fitted to the motherboard that lets an expansion card plug into to the computer.
Spaces built into a computer to accept different or additional computer boards.
Openings in the back of the personal computer where cards or adapters can be installed.
Slots, inside a cabinet that are used to connect additional circuit modules (cards).
(E) Slots cut radially into the blade body which control the expansion of the blade due to heat and centrifugal forces.
Openings on the computer's motherboard (main circuit board) for additional cards or boards. Floppy disc drive: A drive for playing standard 3Â1/2" 'floppy' discs.
Slots in handheld computers used for plugging in digital equipment or additional memory.
an opening in the motherboard for additional cards PCI, AGP, or ISA connections. Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) is an interface that provides quick communication with the CPU and plug-and-play capability. Accelerated Graphics Port (AGP) is a high speed port designed for 3D graphics and has the ability to use main memory for graphics. Industry Standard Architecture (ISA) is a standard interface that is not as fast as PCI or USB.
An outlet on the main circuit board (called the motherboard) that holds expansion cards and provides a connection between the cornputer's bus, or main data pathway, and the expansion card. The slots provide a way of improving or upgrading the system. Back to the Top
Available openings on the motherboard where you can place additional cards or boards via PCI, AGP, or ISA connections.
