Multi-port memories are commonly used components in VLSI systems, such as register files in microprocessors, storage for media or network applications. The content of a multi-port memory can be accessed through different ports simultaneously. This feature is especially valuable for high speed processors, media processors, and communication processors. Multi-port memories require more testing effort since all ports have to be verified.

- geo-dispersed cluster
Microsoft Cluster Server (MSCS) is a term used to describe a cluster configuration where the servers are separated geographically and the physical storage is synchronously replicated among the sites. In a geo-dispersed cluster both the public and private network interfaces have to exist in the same network segment, and cluster nodes also must share the […]
In cloud computing, multi-tenant is the phrase used to describe multiple customers using the same public cloud.
Refers to computer systems that support two or more simultaneous users. All mainframes and minicomputers are multi-user systems, but most personal computers and workstations are not. Another term for multi-user is time sharing.
DVD videos, if recorded using more than one video track may allow viewers to select a different available camera angle from which to view the recording or film. The term multiangle describes the filming production method of recording different angles of the same scene by different cameras.
- multiband antenna
An antenna designed to operate on several bands. These antennas often use designs where one part of the antenna is active for one band, and another part is active for a different band. A multiband antenna may have lower than average gain or may be physically larger in compensation.
