One of Intel’s Pentium II microprocessor. Unlike previous Pentium IIs manufactured with a 0.35-micron process, the Deschutes processors have transistor sizes of 0.25 microns. The smaller size will enable Intel to produce smaller chips with lower power consumption. The first series of Deschutes chips ran at 333 MHz.
- Destructive Trojan
A type of Trojan horse designed to destroy and delete files, and is more like a virus than any other Trojan. It can often go undetected by antivirus software.
- Device Bay
A specification developed by Intel, Compaq and Microsoft that would standardize the size, shape, and connection of computer components, such as disk drives, modems, and audio devices. This would enable computer owners to easily exchange and upgrade these components. The Device Bay specification is similar to the PCMCIA standard, but is designed for larger, faster […]
- Device Software Optimization
Device Software Optimization (DSO) is a methodology that enables companies to develop and run multiple device software at a faster more reliable rate and at a lower cost. DSO encompasses enterprise-wide development processes and benefits include a standardization of technologies, tools and processes, reuse of intellectual property, and a broad ecosystem of hardware and software […]
Developed in 1984 by R.P. Wecker, Dhrystone is a benchmark program written in C or Pascal (and now even in Java) that tests a system’s integer performance. The program is CPU bound, performing no I/O functions or operating system calls. Dhrystones per second is the metric used to measure the number of times the program […]
A publishing system that treats the electronic copy of a document as the “digital master” for both the electronic and print versions. The data originally entered by the document author is also used as the basis for creation, reuse and enhancement of all meta data. DiVA is developed and is maintained by the DiVA Project […]
