In fiber optics technology multimode fiber is used for signal transmission over short distances. In multimode fiber light waves are dispersed into numerous paths as they travel through the cable’s core.
Compare with singlemode fiber.
- multipartite virus
(mul´tē-pär´´tīt vī´rus) (n.) Also called a multi-part virus, a virus that attempts to attack both the boot sector and the executable, or program, files at the same time. When the virus attaches to the boot sector, it will in turn affect the system��s files, and when the virus attaches to the files, it will in […]
Multiplayer is a mode of play for computer games and video games where two or more gamers can play in the same game at the same time, co-operatively as a clan (or team) or head-to-head competitively (often referred to as deathmatch) . Multiplayer mode may be a split screen where the gamers play at the […]
To combine multiple signals (analog or digital) for transmission over a single line or media. A common type of multiplexing combines several low-speed signals for transmission over a single high-speed connection. The following are several examples of different multiplexing methods: Frequency Division Multiplexing (FDM) : each signal is assigned a different frequency Time Division Multiplexing […]
A communications device that multiplexes (combines) several signals for transmission over a single medium. A demultiplexor completes the process by separating multiplexed signals from a transmission line. Frequently a multiplexor and demultiplexor are combined into a single device capable of processing both outgoing and incoming signals. A multiplexor is sometimes called a mux and also […]
- multiplier lock
The multiplier lock is used by CPU manufacturers to prevent consumers and dealers from overclocking the CPU. When overclocking became mainstream, profit margins for CPU manufacturers lowered because users wouldn’t need to upgrade to a faster processor. When locked, the multiplier–the factor by which the bus speed is multiplied to derive the CPU speed–is stuck […]
