A set of algorithms for converting files into a series of 7-bit ASCII characters that can be transmitted over the Internet. Originally, uuencode stood for Unix-to-Unix encode, but it has since become a universal protocol used to transfer files between different platforms such as Unix, Windows, and Macintosh. Uuencoding is especially popular for sending e-mail attachments. Nearly all e-mail applications support uuencoding for sending attachments and uudecoding for receiving attachments.
Another popular encoding algorithm is BinHex , which is often used for transferring Macintosh files, such as PICT graphics files.
Defined by the DAT (Direct Access Transport) Collaborative, the User Direct Access Programming Library or uDAPL, is a specification and a library that defines a single set of user APIs for all RDMA-capable transports.
Ultrabooks are a new category of notebook computers that seeks to fill the gap between lightweight laptops and tablets. Intel dubbed the ultrabook category when it announced it would be directing its mobile computing efforts towards a new class of laptops that would offer an extremely thin (less than 20 millimeters, or 0.8 inches) and […]

A common ultraportable also will have wireless networking capabilities, can have an internal optical drive, and capabilities to connect to an external storage device. Since the devices […]
- ultrasonic focus motor
Abbreviated as USM, and associated with digital camera terminology, ultrasonic motor (also called ultrasonic focus motor ) is a term that is mainly used to describe the motor that controls the movement of the lens or focus ring. An ultrasonic focus motor is much quieter (almost near-silent) and also moves the focus lens or ring […]
Short for Ultra Wide Band, a wireless communications technology that can currently transmit data at speeds between 40 to 60 megabits per second and eventually up to 1 gigabit per second. UWB transmits ultra-low power radio signals with very short electrical pulses, often in the picosecond (1/1000th of a nanosecond) range, across all frequencies at […]
