English term or phrase: Steerable PCI interrups
(I will have a few more terms in separate kudoz. And all are from hardware user's manuals. I only need short and non-technical explanations in English, many thanks for all answers.)

Explanation:
PCI

Peripheral Component Interconnect.A personal computer local bus designed by Intel, which runs at 33 MHz and supports Plug and Play.It provides a high-speed connection with peripherals and allows connection of seven peripheral devices.It is mostly used with Pentium computers but is processor independent and therefore able to work with other processors.It plugs into a PCI slot on the motherboard and can be used along with an ISA or EISA bus.

interrupt

A temporary suspension of a process.There are two main sources of interrupts: a signal from outside the computer, such as someone touching the keyboard or mouse (a hardware interrupt); or a machine instruction such as a request for input or output (a software interrupt).When an interrupt occurs, the CPU may temporarily gives control to an interrupt handler routine.The suspended process is resumed after the interrupt has been handled.

"Steerable" was hard to find in conjunction with "PCI interrups"; since I'm not a techi, I could only guess from linguistic positions, which oftentimes proves wrong in real (technical) world :o)

Well, since nobody has offered anything better yet...

Options for \'steerable\': Operated, controlled, regulated, guided, etc.
