Mini-PCI Bus 124-Pin Pinout

The MinPCI bus is used in Laptop and Note-Book computers.
Mini-PCI uses a reduced pinout than the normal PCI bus used in Desk-top computers.
There are 2 different connector pinouts defined in the Mini-PCI specification, one for type I and type II, and another connector for type III.
The Mini-PCI standard is a Parallel bus standard based on the Parallel PCI bus standard, which is different than the ExpressPCI bus standard.

MiniPCI Card
MiniPCI Board

The Peripheral Component Interface 'PCI' Bus was developed as a local bus expansion for the personal computer.
The PCI spec defines the Electrical requirements for the interface.
No bus terminations are specified, so the bus relies on signal reflection to achieve level threshold and its final value.
The first version of the PCI bus ran at 33MHz with a 32 bit bus (133MBps), while the current version runs at 66MHz with a 64 bit bus.
The PCI bus operates either synchronously or asynchronously with the mother board bus rate.
While operating asynchronously the bus will operate at any frequency from 66MHz down to (and including) 0Hz.
