<hardware> A bus connecting a processor to memory,
usually on the same circuit board as opposed to a
backplane and therefore faster.
Various proprietary local busses for personal computers are
still in use. The most common are Vesa local bus (VLB or
VL), and Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI). Some
computers, e.g. notebook computers, use a local bus with no
expansion slots. Previous non-local bus standards include
ISA, EISA and MCA.
