Part of the The Springer International Series in Engineering and Computer Science book series (SECS, volume 167)


The term “bus” has two meanings: 1) It refers to an common electric pathway connecting different parts of a computer (contrary to individual connections); 2) it refers to a network topology, with several network nodes sharing a single physical channel (contrary, for example, to star-like or ring topologies). In the following section the first definition is used.


Central Processing Unit Controller Area Network Ring Topology Carrier Sense Multiple Access Fault Handling
