    Peripheral Component Interconnect, originally designed by Intel, is an interconnect system for sending data between the CPU and peripherals independently of the processor. Found on many desktop computers these days, not only those based around Intel processors, the standard allows for 32-bit transmission of up to 132Mb per second, and has found a use in such high data rate applications as digital audio and video. 64-bit PCI buses are also now available.
