Key PCI attributes, such as its usage model and software interfaces are maintained, while the less desirable aspects of PCI, such as its bandwidth limitations and parallel bus implementation, are replaced by a fully serial interface.
Rather than utilizing a shared, parallel bus structure such as with PCI or AGP, PCI Express provides a new architecture whereby each link is a serial communications channel comprised of two differential wire pairs that provide 2.5 Gigabits per second (Gbps) of throughput in each direction.
The reliability of the parallel configuration is subject to the integrity and redundancy of the paralleling controls, and whether the parallel bus has redundancy (i.e., allowing one of the UPSs to drop out of the service, still having enough power to service the load; and whether the bypass is fed with protected power from another UPS or not).

and Intel's AGP architecture offers a parallel bus to PCI to offload graphics traffic, increasing overall throughput.
As the latest DDR3 and DDR4 speeds support multi-gigabit parallel bus interfaces with voltage swings smaller than previous generation interfaces, there is no room for error in any modern memory interface design.
These incorporate establishing an electric trains transport network and a parallel bus transport network.
* A Magellan motion chip driven by a host microprocessor using a CANbus 2.0B, 8- or 16-bit parallel bus, or an asynchronous serial port.
SCSI, as well as other parallel bus technologies, remains in widespread use and continues to meet the performance requirements of many of today's enterprise systems.
It is driven by a host microprocessor using an 8-or 16-bit parallel bus, CANBus 2.0B, or an asynchronous serial port.
This IEEE-488.2 compatible interface board provides an [I.sup.2] serial bus, an 8-bit parallel bus and an asynchronous serial interface to control digital devices.
