Use of a CMMS package should improve productivity, lower overall operating costs, and store valuable information about maintenance functions in an organization. Computerized Maintenance Management Systems […]
Short for complementary metal oxide semiconductor. Pronounced see-moss, CMOS is a widely used type of semiconductor. CMOS semiconductors use both NMOS (negative polarity) and PMOS (positive polarity) circuits. Since only one of the circuit types is on at any given time, CMOS chips require less power than chips using just one type of transistor. This […]
(1) Short for content management system. (2) Short for color management system.
Short for cable modem termination system, a system of devices located in the cable head-end that allows cable television operators to offer high-speed Internet access to home computers. The CMTS sends and receives digital cable modem signals on a cable network, receiving signals sent upstream from a user’s cable modem, converting the signals into IP […]
Short for Cyan-Magenta-Yellow-Black, and pronounced as separate letters. CMYK is a color model in which all colors are described as a mixture of these four process colors. CMYK is the standard color model used in offset printing for full-color documents. Because such printing uses inks of these four basic colors, it is often called four-colorprinting. […]
