    Daisy Chain, in computer science, a set of devices connected in a series. When devices are daisy-chained to a microcomputer, the first device is connected to the computer, the second device is connected to the first, and so on down the line. Signals are passed through the chain from one device to the next. To maintain order and eliminate conflicting requests to use the channel (bus) to which all devices are ultimately connected, each device is given a different priority, or, as in the Apple Desktop Buswhich permits daisy-chaining of several deviceseach device listens to the channel and transmits information only when the line is clear.
