BUS

Abbreviation for Bartholin glands, urethra, Skene glands.

bus

a set of parallel wires in a computer to which the central processing unit and all input-output units are connected. Each separate wire carries the electric current representing 1 bit. Buses interconnect the parts of the computer that communicate with each other, such as a video card or modem.

bus

The hardware that controls the flow of commands between the main processor and other components—memory, peripherals, etc.

BUS

Abbreviation for:
Bartholin's, urethral, Skene's (glands)
biological units
buspirone

Through its suite of products, Backplane connects software to anyone or anything, anywhere.
Early backplane versions only needed one data line between communication partners, but due to the ever-expanding data volumes exchanged between boards, this design is no longer sufficient.
The Xilinx demonstration, by virtue of giving ATCA a performance boost, clearly shows that designers today can use the standards-based modular platform to build backplanes that are on par with custom backplane performance.
Since drives at quarter wavelengths create a notch filter periodic structure at 160MHz, some backplanes will need to have the spacing adjusted.
With the inherent benefit of seeding the community with the social network effects of Lady Gaga's #LittleMonsters, we believe Backplane is positioned for rapid scale," said co-founder of Backplane and Atom Factory CEO Troy Carter.
Engineers also should know whether they need access to I/O signals on the rear side of the backplane, explained Rodriguez.
In addition to providing high performance silicon, software, IP, and free reference designs for serial backplane design, the Xilinx eSP web portal is a proven resource for engineers with over seven million visits since its introduction.
This intellectual property is at the core of the Force10 TeraScale E-Series backplane, which has been tested to support up to four 100 Gigabit Ethernet ports per slot.
2 Gbit/s transceiver providing high speed serial I/O for both backplanes and line side network interfaces.
The company has also announced a 5-slot VXS backplane Single Star (with one hub slot).
5 Gb/sec (1X) ports from the backplane to four 10 Gb/sec (4X) uplink ports on the front of the chassis.
Synchronous serial backplane switch fabric/transceiver chipsets (Fig 1) maintain faster switching and configuration speeds and are highly scalable as compared to switch ICs that employ shared memory, asynchronous, or parallel switch fabrics.
