What is a scsi host bus adapter? It's a printed circuit board that installs in a standard microcomputer and provides a scsi connection so that scsi devices can be connected to the microcomputer

SCSI: What is a SCSI Host Bus Adapter?

The SCSI card or circuitry in a host computer that allows the host to communicate with the SCSI devices is called a host adapter. The name adapter (as opposed to controller) is tribute to the fact that all the intelligence is located in the target controller on the peripheral device.
