PCI is an acronym for Peripheral Component Interconnect, a hardware bus that you can insert additional internal components to your PC, tablet, or Laptop. PCI was originally developed by Intel and is now present in every computer. The original PCI cards were 32 bit and were bigger. Nowadays, we use PCI express, which is an upgraded version of the earlier PCI. However, with the invention of smartphones, tablets and other smaller devices, PCI posed a challenge because these devices were really small and couldn’t incorporate the large-sized PCI. Therefore, Mini PCI was invented with a smaller size and can easily be inserted into your portable devices. You can use Mini PCI to add additional slots to your machine and increase its speed and efficiency to run faster. Here’s a list of some mini PCI devices which you can buy online.
