Computing Dictionary

NLX definition

hardware, standard
A low-profile, low TCO motherboard design created jointly by Intel Corp., IBM, DEC and other PC vendors. In contrast to the traditional single-board design, NLX uses a riser card to carry PCI, ISA and AGP bus data (despite Intel's stated intent to rid PC motherboards of the ISA bus by 2000).
Version 1.2 of NLX is the final specification, and was frozen in March 1997. Minor modifications appear in the form of "Engineering Change Requests".
