Computer bus is a subsystem that transfers data between components inside a computer or between computers.
Modern computer buses can use parallel and bit-serial connections, and can be wired in either a multidrop (electrical parallel) or daisy chain topology, or connected by switched hubs, as in the case of USB.

- Amiga Expansion Bus A.K.A Zorro I These are the connections found at the side of the Amiga 1000 and Amiga 500 computers. They are electric and mechanical compatible with the single exception of being rotated 180 degrees looking at it from the top of the PCB this can cause trouble connecting a expansion meant for the A1000 into the A500 and vice versa. This Bus is like most Buses at this time a extension on the CPU Bus.
- Amiga Expansion Bus Zorro II These are the connections found at the side of the Amiga computers. This Bus is like most Buses at this time a extension on the CPU Bus.
