Standard interfaces approved by the Electronic Industries Alliance (EIA) for connecting serial devices. The RS-422 and RS-423 standards are designed to replace the older RS-232 standard because they support higher data rates and greater immunity to electrical interference. All Apple Macintosh computers contain an RS-422 port that can also be used for RS-232C communication.
RS-422 supports multipoint connections whereas RS-423 supports only point-to-point connections.
An Electronics Industry Alliance (EIA) standard for multipoint communications. It supports several types of connectors, including DB-9 and DB-37. RS-485 is similar to RS-422 but can support more nodes per line because it uses lower-impedance drivers and receivers.
Short for Reed-Solomon Product Code. RS-PC is an error-correction system for encoding data for DVDs. It uses Reed-Solomon encoding to increase the effectiveness of error-correction.
- Release To Manufacturing (RTM)
Short for release to manufacturing, the version of a software product that is given to manufacturers to bundle into future versions of their hardware products. RTM versions are typically released to manufacturers before they are released to the general public so that the manufacturers can work out any bugs the software may encounter with hardware […]
Short for real-time operating system it is an operating system that has been developed for real-time applications and typically used for embedded applications on a special-purpose computer with a limited set of functions determined by the hardware design.
- Real-Time Transport Protocol (RTP)
Short for Real-Time Transport Protocol, an Internet protocol for transmitting real-time data such as audio and video. RTP itself does not guarantee real-time delivery of data, but it does provide mechanisms for the sending and receiving applications to support streaming data. Typically, RTP runs on top of the UDP protocol, although the specification is general […]
