PCI-ISA - Passive Backplanes

(Study this page first to understand how computers became more maintanable and expandable - delabs)

PCI-ISA - Passive Backplanes

"The PCI-ISA passive backplane standard moves all of the components normally located on the motherboard to a single plug-in card. Looking much like a standard ISA or PCI card, a PCI-ISA CPU card has two edge connectors on it - one for the PCI bus and one for the ISA bus. The "motherboard" is replaced with a simple "passive backplane" that has only connectors soldered to it."

Voluntary Standards Cover the Spectrum: from Multipurpose Utility Vehicles to Magnet Wire

Magnet Wire - ANSI and NEMA

Magnet Wire

Magnet wire, also known as winding wire, is an insulated copper or aluminum electrical conductor used in motors, transformers, and other electromagnetic equipment. When wound into a coil and energized, magnet wire creates an electromagnetic field for use in energy transformation as well as a wide range of communications applications and products.
