Abstract

Buses to ride NuBus, MCA, EISA. Imagine a computer giant like IBM defending its choice of an inputoutput conductor for its Personal System2 line of computers with television commercials comparing the innards of a computer to an expressway, packets of data moving like vehicles in traffic scrambling to avoid backups due to obsolete or nonproprietary architectures. These commercials have appeared in response to the first organized effort by a group of computer manufacturers to circumvent IBM's proprietary Micro Channel Architecture MCA with their own design, called EISA Extended Industry Standard Architecture. Why is there such concern over bus architectures, and how does the Macintosh solution, the NuBus, compare
