  Extended Industry-Standard Architecture
  EISA
  
      (EISA) /eesa/ A bus standard for
     IBM compatibles that extends the ISA bus architecture to
     32 bits and allows more than one CPU to share the bus.  The
     bus mastering support is also enhanced to provide access to
     4 GB of memory.  Unlike MCA, EISA can accept older XT bus
     architecture and ISA boards.
  
     EISA was announced in late 1988 by compatible vendors as a
     counter to IBM's MCA in its PS/2 series.  Although
     somewhat inferior to the MCA it became much more popular due
     to the proprietary nature of MCA.
