Interfaces
   Host Interface      A bus is a pathway that is used to transfer data within a computer. This pathway can be established between two or more computer components. There are many types of buses: processor bus, memory bus, AGP bus, etc. The I/O Bus (also known as expansion slots) enables the CPU to communicate with peripheral devices. One important parameter used to measure the performance of a bus is the number of bits at which the bus operates. This is the number of paths (wires) that the bus uses to send data simultaneously. For instance, a 16-bit bus is capable of sending 16 bits of data simultaneously.
   Your choices are...         
   CompactPCI       CompactPCI is a high-performance industrial bus that uses the electrical standards of the PCI bus packaged in a Eurocard. The specifications of the CompactPCI bus were developed and maintained by the PCI Industrial Computers Manufacturers Group (PCIMG). It is used extensively in systems that require high speed transfer of data, such as data communication routers and switches, real-time machine control, real-time data acquisition, military systems, etc 
   ISA / EISA       Industry standard architecture (ISA) is a standard for I/O buses that was set back in 1984 when IBM was the standard. The ISA bus can handle 16-bit data transfers at a clock speed of 8 MHz. It is also capable of handling memory under 16 MB. Extended ISA (EISA) is an improvement over the ISA bus. It runs at 8 MHz, is capable of 32-bit data transfer, and can access all memory in the system. 
   32-bit PCI       Peripheral component interconnect (PCI) is a local bus system designed for high-end computer systems, such as the Pentium®. It transfers 32-or-64 bits of data at a clock speed of 33 MHz. The PCI bus supports 3-to-5 critical peripherals, which are either integrated directly onto the motherboard or added via expansion cards. The PCI bus fully supports cards developed for standard I/O buses. 
   64-bit PCI       The PMC bus is actually a form factor, not a bus -- it is electrically the same as the PCI Bus, but the shape of the card and the bus connectors are different. It is designed for rugged implementations as the PMC form factor provides a secure mounting platform for PMC VME mezzanine boards. 
   PXI Bus       PCI eXtensions for instrumentation (PXI) are a superset of CompactPCI that adds timing and triggering functions, imposes requirements for documenting environmental tests, and establishes a standard Windows-based software framework. 
   PMC Bus       The PMC bus is actually a form factor, not a bus -- it is electrically the same as the PCI bus, but the shape of the card and the bus connectors are different. It is designed for rugged implementations as the PMC form factor provides a secure mounting platform for PMC VME mezzanine boards. 
   PCMCIA (PC Card)       PCMCIA devices (PC cards) are credit-card-sized peripherals that are predominantly used in laptop computers. The PCMCIA adapter takes the place of a COM port on a standard bus. The card is plugged into a 68-pin host socket that is connected either to the motherboard or an expansion bus. An adapter then translates the PCMCIA signals into signals usable by the computer's bus. 
   PC/104 (PC/104-Plus, EBX, ETX)       PC/104 gets its name from the desktop personal computers (PCs) designed by IBM (PCs) and from the number of pins used to connect the cards together (104). PC/104 cards are much smaller than ISA-bus cards and they stack together, which eliminates the need for a motherboard, back plane, and/or card cage. PC/104-Plus incorporates the PCI bus into the PC/104 form-factor for faster data transfer. EBX (embedded board eXpandable) defines a 5.75" x 8" form factor large enough to implement a powerful single-board computer. It supports PC/104 expansion.  ETX (embedded technology eXtended) is a form factor for developing an embedded system. It allows for easier design by eliminating cables and connectors. The ETX-PC has a small footprint, 114mm x 95mm, and a maximum thickness of 12mm. 
   VME Bus       VersaModule Eurocard (VME) is a 32-bit bus used in industrial, commercial, and military applications. VME64 is an expanded version that provides 64-bit data transfer and addressing. 
   VXI / VMI Bus       Motorola developed the VME eXtensions for instrumentation with others in the late 1970s. It is a standard for many electronic platforms as it defines electrical and mechanical backplane characteristics. 
   Other       Unlisted, specialized, or proprietary configuration. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Ports:      A physical connector that allows a peripheral device such as a printer, a keyboard, or modem, to be attached to the computer.
   Your choices are...         
   Ethernet       The device has ehternet ports. 
   IEEE 1394 (FireWire®)       A companion to USB, IEEE 1394 is a very high-speed serial bus (400 Megabit - 1 Gigabit). It was designed to replace all external high-speed peripheral connections to personal computers, including hard disks, CD-ROMs, DVDs, graphics cards, high-speed scanners, direct video, monitors, etc. 
   Parallel Ports       Parallel ports transmit data by using eight wires simultaneously to send the eight bits that comprise one byte of data. Standard parallel port (SPP) is the most basic port type. Enhanced parallel ports (EPPs) and enhanced capability port (ECPs) are standard signaling methods for bi-directional parallel communication between a computer and peripheral devices that offers the potential for much higher rates of data transfer than the original parallel signaling methods. EPP is for non-printer peripherals. ECP is for printers and scanners. EPP / ECP are part of IEEE Standard 1284, which also specifies support for current signaling methods (including Centronics, the de facto standard for printer communication) so that both old and new peripherals can be accommodated. 
   RS232/RS422/RS485       Serial ports (asynchronous serial interface) are a system-to-system communication interface. Data is sent over a single wire (serial). Transmission is asynchronous because no synchronization or clocking signal is present. Standards include the following:
  • RS232 - An interface between data terminal equipment and data communications equipment employing serial binary data interchange.
  • RS422 - A balanced serial interface for the transmission of digital data. It was designed for greater distances and higher Baud rates than RS232.
  • RS485 - A balanced serial interface for the transmission of digital data. The advantage of a balanced signal is the greater immunity to noise. The difference between RS422 and RS485 is that RS485 can be transformed into a multi-point application.
  
   SCI       Serial Communication Interface (SCI) port. 
   SPI       Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) port. 
   USB       Universal serial bus (USB) is a 12-Megabit serial bus designed to replace low-to-medium speed peripheral device connections to personal computers, including keyboards, mice, modems, printers, joysticks, audio functions, monitor controls, etc.
