Found in Fibre Channel nodes, the Node port (N_Port) is used to connect an equipment port to the fabric. It connects through a point-to-point link to a single N_Port or a single F_Port. N_Port is a node port that is not loop capable.
- Named Pipes
An interprocess control (IPC) protocol for exchanging information between two applications, possibly running on different computers in a network. Named Pipes are supported by a number of network operating systems (NOSs), including Netware and LAN Manager.
A Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) development board used for the implementation and debugging of FPGA designs. NanoBoards provide communications to and from the FPGA and also incorporate a range of peripherals including LCD, flash memory, RAM, keyboard, and others used for application development. NanoBoards can also be chained together for complex system development. NanoBoard is […]

- Nassi-Schneiderman diagram
A Nassi-Schneiderman (NS) diagram is a graphical method of stating algorithms. It is a diagrammatic approach to algorithm design but is not as bulky to draw as flowcharts.
- Native Command Queuing
Native Command Queuing (NCQ) is a command protocol in Serial ATA that can be implemented only on native Serial ATA hard drives. It allows multiple commands to be outstanding within a drive at the same time. Drives that support NCQ have an internal queue where outstanding commands can be dynamically rescheduled or re-ordered, along with […]
