A disk storage technology developed by Imation Corporation that supports very high-density diskettes. SuperDisk diskettes are etched with a servo pattern at the factory. This pattern is then read by the SuperDisk drive to precisely align the read/write head. The result is that a SuperDisk diskette can have 2,490 tracks, as opposed to the 160 tracks that conventional 3.5-inch 1.44 MB diskettes use. This higher density translates into 120 MB capacity per diskette.
Unlike other removable disk storage solutions, such as the Zip drive, SuperDisk is backward compatible with older diskettes. This means that you can use the same SuperDisk drive to read and write to older 1.44 MB diskettes as well as the new 120 MB SuperDisk diskettes.
The common name for the FDHD (floppy disk, high density) disk drive that comes with all models of the Apple Macintosh computer. The SuperDrive can read and write to all three Macintosh disk sizes (400K, 800K, and 1.44MB) as well as the two PC 3½-inch disk sizes (720K and 1.44MB).
- SuperSpeed USB
Formally called USB 3.0, SuperSpeed USB is the latest version of the Universal Serial Bus (USB) external bus standard.
- Super Memspeed Technology
In motherboard terminology, Super Memspeed Technology is an ASUS technology, used for overclocking the RAM. It offers enthusiasts better performance regardless DRAM specifications and overclocking margins. For example, the chipset of the ASUS P5K motherboard supports DDR2-800 MHz memory. Using Super Memspeed Technology the motherboard can natively support up to DDR2-1066 MHz.
Suspend-to-RAM (STR) occurs when a system enters a low-power state. Information on system configuration, open applications, and active files is stored in main memory (RAM ), while most of the system’s other components are turned off. A system in STR can use as little as 5 watts of power, with most of it going to […]
A library of GUI controls (e.g., buttons, sliders, checkboxes) that replaces the somewhat weak and inflexible AWT controls. Swing is part of the Java Foundation Classes (JFC). Swing is often seen written as Swing (Java).
