Carbon Nanotube Technology
Carbon nanotubes, or CNTs, are tubes of carbon atoms less than a nanometer (one billionth of a meter) in diameter. CNTs possess a combination of unique properties that make them highly programmable for a variety of purposes, including flat panel displays. In May 2005 Motorola Labs unveiled the first working 5-inch color video display prototype based on their proprietary carbon nanotube technology.
The 32-bit version of the PCMCIA PC Card standard. In addition to supporting a wider bus (32 bits instead of 16 bits), CardBus also supports bus mastering and operation speeds up to 33 MHz.
A network software diagnostic tools created and used by the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in crime investigation. Carnivore is a Windows-based with packet-sniffing software that is installed at an Internet service provider (ISP) to sniff traffic on a LAN, looking for e-mail messages in transit. The FBI may only use the Carnivore system […]
- Carrier Ethernet
Carrier Ethernet is high speed Ethernet for Metro Area Networks. It defines native Ethernet packet access to the Internet as well as increasing penetration of wireless networks, which present a direct challenge to the traditional SONET telephony infrastructure, and promises Wide Area networking scalable beyond 10Gbps using ubiquitous Ethernet technology. The Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF), […]
Software from Marimba, Inc. of Mountain View, CA (www.marimba.com) that helps administrators install and update applications and information across a network. For example, if a number of users on a network use a version of Microsoft Word that’s been recently updated, the administrator can use Castanet to update the users’ versions without physically installing each […]
Short for Category 5, network cabling that consists of four twisted pairs of copper wire terminated by RJ45 connectors. Cat-5 cabling supports frequencies up to 100 MHz and speeds up to 1000 Mbps. It can be used for ATM, token ring, 1000Base-T, 100Base-T, and 10Base-Tnetworking. Computers hooked up to LANs are connected using Cat-5 cables, […]
