Where can I find THE ISA/EISA specification for i/o cards? I am a mech engineer and have to design an i/o card for a pc. This type of card is new to me, I would like to design to the specification. I have not been able to find any info yet on the internet and our elec engineers do not seem to know where to find this info either. Any info provided is greatly appreciated. M Mosca

Try - a web site of lots of computer books.

You should not have to build these types of cards, there are zillions on the market, email direct if you want more info, I suppose we don't do "commercials" here!



Try to contact the IEEE they are the one's who set the standards for all electrical and electronic devices in a computer.
