Which of the following expansion buses is most commonly used?

Which of the following expansion buses is most commonly used?


Answer

PCI buses are most commonly used for devices such as sound cards, modems, and network cards. The AGP and VESA expansion buses are most commonly used for videa. ISA buses were used to connect peripheral cards to the motherboards, but are considered a legacy device and are no longer available in newer systems.

 

Similarly, you may ask, which of the following components is necessary to keep the real time clock running?

The CMOS battery supplies power to the CMOS to keep the real-time clock running. Formerly, the CMOS battery was needed to save system settings when the computer was powered off.

 

Also Know, which expansion bus uses a point to point dedicated connection?

 PCI Express. Next generation I/O bus architecture. Rather than a shared bus, each slot links to a switch which prioritises and routes data through a point-to-point dedicated connection and provides a serial full-duplex method of transmission. PCI Express 1.0.

 

Also, which port on a sound card should you connect a non amplified microphone to?

Connect a non-amplified microphone to a sound card's Mic In (microphone in) port. The speaker out connector sends signals to external speakers. This signal is amplified and the computer and the speakers can control the sound level.

 

Which of the following components is an example of firmware?

Typical examples of devices containing firmware are embedded systems, consumer appliances, computers, computer peripherals, and others. Almost all electronic devices beyond the simplest contain some firmware. Firmware is held in non-volatile memory devices such as ROM, EPROM, or flash memory.
