A peripheral component interconnect (PCI) bus is an expansion bus that provides a communication path between a central processing unit (CPU) and a PCI device such as a display, disk drive, or SCSI adapter. As a particular computer's usage and applications expand, it may be desirable to expand the input/output (I/O) capabilities of that computer. A computer system typically includes a memory controller and an I/O controller. Input/output (I/O) devices of a computer system often communicate with the system's central processing unit (CPU) and system memory via a chipset. The chipset may include a memory controller and an input/output controller. Computers are typically manufactured to include one or more connectors to secure Peripheral Component Interface (PCI) expansion cards. PCI cards (Peripheral Component Interconnect cards) is a kind of bus structure, which is used for connecting to modem cards, monitor cards, sound cards or other peripheral equipment. PCI cards increase the capacity of the computer system. A PCI card makes quick and easy expandability commonplace in modern computer systems. The PCI interface has long been incorporated into virtually all personal computers and provides a near universal platform for a plethora of variously functioning PCI cards. The PCI bus specification provides a processor-independent interface to add-in boards, commonly referred to as expansion or adapter boards. PCI based computer systems generally includes a chassis maintaining various other components, such as microprocessors, power supply units, hard disk drives, cooling fans, etc. In addition, the chassis forms an I/O card bay defining slots sized to receive PCI cards. The card bay accurately positions and maintains individual PCI cards relative to a backplane for designated interface with the microprocessor via appropriate PCI bus architecture.
