Toni Beltran
I/O card setting (computer hardware)
Explanation:
Any of a number of input-output (I/O) devices can and do require specific types of addressing for their cards. Cards can come in 4-, 8-, 12-, 16-, 24-slot sizes - I'm sure there higher numbered slot sizes as well. The addressing refers to the switches in the backplane; I've seen references to 1, 2, and 1.2 (or 1/2) slot addressing.

Hope this helped!
