Peripheral Component Interconnect Bus. A 32 or 64 bit wide bus operating at 33 or 66 MHz capable of transferring 132, 264, or 528 million bytes per second (or approximately 125.88, 251.77, or 503.54 megabytes per second).
(n.) A 32-bit, Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) bus providing a maximum 132â€“Mbyte/sec data transfer rate. PCI devices have autoconfiguration capabilities and do not have to be configured by users.
An abbreviation of Peripheral Component Interconnect Bus. An advanced bus system, i.e. a system of parallel data lines to transfer information between individual system components, especially to expansion boards.
PCI local bus is a standard used in today's computers for high speed component-to-component connection. It offers features like bus mastering, DMA, data bursting, scalability, plug & play support. Thanks to its high performance (up to 132 MB/s throughput), the modern framegrabbers can offer real-time transfer of video data to the main and video memory. Compact PCI bus A PCI-based specification designed to address the needs of industrial users who need the PCI functionality in a more rugged package. Compact PCI offers high reliability, compact size, passive bacplane design, optimized cooling, and other features needed in industrial environment. Industrial PCI bus Another industrial solution for PCI-based systems.
Bus on PC node, typically used for I/O, but also to connect nodes with a communication network. The bandwidth varies with the type from 110-480 MB/s. Newer upgraded versions PCI-X and PCI Express are (becoming) available presently.
