Definitions for "Synchronous Transmission"
The transmission of data between computers at timed intervals.
A data transmission method widely used in telecommunications. Information is transmitted as a continuous string of characters, preceded and followed by a synchronization (sync) character to align the clocks at the sending and receiving mechanisms.
A method of electrical transfer in which a constant time interval is maintained between successive bits or characters. Equipment within the system is kept in step on the basis of this timing. Contrast with asynchronous transmission.
A communications protocol in which the source and destination points operate in timed alignment to enable high-speed data transfer.
