Static Random Access MemorySRAM
Short for static random access memory, and pronounced ess-ram. SRAM is a type of memory that is faster and more reliable than the more common DRAM (dynamic RAM). The term static is derived from the fact that it doesn’t need to be refreshed like dynamic RAM.
While DRAM supports access times of about 60 nanoseconds, SRAM can give access times as low as 10 nanoseconds. In addition, its cycle time is much shorter than that of DRAM because it does not need to pause between accesses. Unfortunately, it is also much more expensive to produce than DRAM. Due to its high cost, SRAM is often used only as a memory cache.
- SRS Circle Surround
SRS Circle Surround enables audio professionals to encode up to 6.1 channels of discrete program material for transmission via any two-channel medium, such as broadcast television or radio (including digital) or two-channel Internet streams. Circle Surround-encoded material can also be stored for playback over two-channel mediums such as VHS, PC and console games, DVDs and […]
Short for Signaling System 7, a telecommunications protocol defined by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) as a way to offload PSTN data traffic congestion onto a wireless or wireline digital broadband network. SS7 is characterized by high-speed circuit switching and out-of-band signaling using Service Switching (SSPs), Signal Transfer Points (STPs), and Service Control Points (SCPs) […]
Short for Structured Systems Analysis and Design Method, a set of standards developed in the early 1980s for systems analysis and application design widely used for government computing projects in the United Kingdom. SSADM uses a combination of text and diagrams throughout the whole life cycle of a systemdesign, from the initial design idea to […]
Short for Streaming SIMD Extensions, SSE is a processor technology that enables single instruction multiple data. On older processors only a single data element could be processed per instruction. However, SSE enables the instructions to handle multiple data elements. SSE (SIMD technology) is used in intensive applications, like 3D graphics, making processing much faster. SSE […]
- Secure Shell (SSH)
Developed by SSH Communications Security Ltd., Secure Shell is a program to log into another computer over a network, to execute commands in a remote machine, and to move files from one machine to another. It provides strong authenticationand secure communications over insecure channels. It is a replacement for rlogin, rsh, rcp, and rdist. SSH […]
