  13. A set of electrical conductors(wires, PCB tracks or connections in an integrated circuit)connecting various "stations", which can be functional unitsin a computer or nodes in a network. A bus is abroadcast channel, meaning that each station receives everyother station's transmissions and all stations have equalaccess to the bus.Various schemes have been invented to solve the problem ofcollisions: multiple stations trying to transmitat once, e.g. CSMA/CD, bus master.The term is almost certainly derived from the electricalengineering term "bus bar" - a substantial, rigid power supplyconductor to which several connections are made. This wasonce written "'bus bar" as it was a contraction of "omnibusbar" - a connection bar "for all", by analogy with thepassenger omnibus - a conveyance "for all".More on derivation (http://foldoc.org/pub/misc/omnibus.html).There are busses both within the CPU and connecting it toexternal memory and peripheral devices. The data bus,address bus and control signals, despite their names, reallyconstitute a single bus since each is useless without theothers.The width of the data bus is usually specified in bits andis the number of parallel connectors. This and the clockrate determine the bus's data rate (the number of bytes persecond which it can carry). This is one of the factorslimiting a computer's performance. Most currentmicroprocessors have 32-bit busses both internally andexternally. 100 or 133 megahertz bus clock rates arecommon. The bus clock is typically slower than the processorclock.Some processors have internal busses which are wider thantheir external busses (usually twice the width) since thewidth of the internal bus affects the speed of all operationsand has less effect on the overall system cost than the widthof the external bus.Various bus designs have been used in the PC, includingISA, EISA, Micro Channel, VL-bus and PCI. Otherperipheral busses are NuBus, TURBOchannel, VMEbus, MULTIBUS andSTD bus.See also bus network.Ukranian (http://open-taxi.com/mynews/~adrian/10). foldoc_fs
