local bus - Computer Definition
Also called the "system bus," it is the pathway between the CPU, memory and peripheral devices. In the early 1990s, when the higher-speed VESA local bus (see VL-bus) was introduced, which ran at the same speed as the system bus, the term was popular for a while. See bus and PC data buses.
