<p>The typical interface between hardware components is a standardized bus. This article presents a virtual counterpart for simulated hardware components: a virtual bus on a virtual motherboard. The authors show that reuse of standard components, common with real hardware, can find its analogy in the domain of simulated hardware, making simulators less expensive and more flexible.</p>
