(pronounced von noi-man) An early computer created by Hungarian mathematician John von Neumann (1903-1957). It included three components used by most computers today: a CPU; a slow-to-access storage area, like a hard drive ; and secondary fast-access memory (RAM ). The machines stored instructions as binary values (creating the stored program concept) and executed instructions sequentially – the processor fetched instructions one at a time and processed them. Today “von Neumann architecture” often refers to the sequential nature of computers based on this model.

The disk cache system in Windows 95. VCACHE replaces the Smartdrive system used in older versions of Windows. Whereas SmartDrive is a 16-bit driver, VCACHE is a 32-bit driver. VCACHE can dynamically change the size of the disk cache depending on available disk space and application requirements.
(1) Short for Visual Cryptography, a type of image encryption that works without needing complex calculations to decrypt. Visual cryptography uses the characteristics of human vision to decrypt encrypted images. (2) Short for videoconferencing.
