piggybacking

1. A method for passing acknowledgement frames and data frames in the same direction along a line.

2. The practice of increasing memory capacity by soldering chips on top of other chips. The chip-enable or high address pins would be connected to the address bus by a flying lead. Many Ohio Superboards were expanded to a massive 8K of RAM in this way.
