Abbreviation of Non-Volatile Random Access Memory, a type of memory that retains its contents when power is turned off. One type of NVRAM is SRAM that is made non-volatile by connecting it to a constant power source such as a battery. Another type of NVRAM uses EEPROMchips to save its contents when power is turned off. In this case, NVRAM is composed of a combination of SRAM and EEPROM chips.
NWLink is the Microsoft implementation of the Internetwork Packet Exchange/Sequenced Packet Exchange (IPX/SPX) protocol used on NetWare networks. NWLink allows connectivity between Windows-based computers and NetWare networks running IPX/SPX. NWLink also provides network basic input/output system (NetBIOS) functionality and the Routing Information Protocol (RIP). NWLink supports connectivity between computers running Windows and computers running NetWare […]
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 […]
Created by 19-year-old Shawn Fanning in 1999, Napster is an application that gives individuals access to one another’s MP3 files by creating a unique file-sharing system via the Internet. Napster lets users view and download the contents of MP3 directories from other Napster users’ hard drives. Type in the artist and/or song to receive a […]
