Small computer System Interface (SCSI)

Small computer System Interface (SCSI) refers to the 8-bit parallel I/O bus that “hides” the internal structure of the peripherals from the host computer and is the most popular bus today.

The Current SCSI standard, finalized in 1986, defines a bus  that supports transfer speed of up to 5 MB/second.
