  Micro Channel Architecture
  MCA
  
      (MCA) IBM's proprietary 32-bit bus, used in
     high-end PS/2 personal computers.  Micro Channel is
     designed for multiprocessing.  It eliminates potential
     conflicts that arise when installing new peripheral devices.
     MCA is *not* compatible with either EISA or XT bus
     architecture so older cards cannot be used with it.
  
     As with the ROM BIOS in the first IBM PCs, figuring out
     the Micro Channel's secrets has been an arduous task of
     reverse engineering ever since the PS/2 line was announced.
     Consequently, the MCA has never become as wide spread as the
     competing EISA standard.
