Data bus components include the hardware devices that make up the data bus architecture. This includes the data bus connector, data bus repeater, data bus interface, bus transceiver, bus master, bus interface controller and bus arbiter. The data bus connector is a hardware part that connects the system components to the data bus. The data bus repeater is a device used to help transfer data from one bus to another. The data bus interface is a hardware component that allows the data bus to communicate with other devices on the system. The bus transceiver is an electronic device that transmits and receives analog signals. The bus master is the device that is responsible for managing the data bus. The bus interface controller is a hardware device that controls the data flow between the system components. Finally, the bus arbiter is a device that controls who has access to the data bus.
