Bus systems

  • H. Rosemary Taylor


When more than two devices are to be connected together so that any one can communicate with any other, the connections are termed a bus. Obviously there must be a certain amount of standardization for all the devices to be compatible, and a large number of standard specifications have been issued by various organizations:
  • Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE);

  • Engineering Industries Association (EIA);

  • International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC);

  • British Standards Institution (BSI).
