A computer is interconnected by an adapter to peripheral devices such as printers, camcorders, speakers, microphones, CD-ROMs, hard disks and scanners, for expanding the capability of the computer system. Conventional adapters include two connectors at either end wherein one is configured to mate with a connector for an interface of the computer, and the other is configured to mate with one of the peripheral devices. In order to accommodate increasing requirements for data storage and data transfer capability, several peripheral device interface standards have been developed. Among these are the IDE (integrated drive electronics interface), the ESDI (enhanced small device interface), and the SCSI bus, or small computer systems interface bus, the AT attachment (ATA) interface, and the universal serial bus (USB). The use of adapter cards is a popular technique for expanding the capability of a computer system. Generally, computers are equipped with a plurality of slots into which adapter cards can be inserted. Many types of adapter cards for computer systems, including high performance I/O cards, consist of two sections, an I/O interface section and a processor section. The essential element of each slot is a connector that is connected to an address and data bus within the computer.
