Transmission mode that sends a number of bits simultaneously over separate lines. Usually unidirectional.
Simultaneous transmission of a data stream over multiple channels, or on different carrier frequencies on one channel. See serial transmission.
The simultaneous transmission of a group of bits over separate wires. With microcomputers, parallel transmission refers to the transmission of 1 byte (8bits). The standard connection for parallel transmission â€“ for example, from a computer to a printer â€“ is known as the Centronics interface.
Method of transmitting data within a computer in which a bundled set of bits is sent over a data bus all at the same time.
Method of data transmission in which the bits of a data character are transmitted simultaneously over a number of channels. Compare with serial transmission.
Pertaining to the transmission of data in groups of bits versus one bit at a time. (Contrast with serial transmission.)
Method of data transfer in which all bits of a character or a byte are transmitted simultaneously either over separate communication lines or on different carrier frequencies on the same communication line. See also: bit and byte. Compare with: serial transmission.
The transmission of data bits over different lines, usually simultaneously; as opposed to serial transmission.
Data transmission in which an entire byte of data is transmitted at the same time.
Sending all data bits simultaneously. Commonly used for communications between computers and printer devices.
Refers to moving data one character at a time.
The transfer of data characters using parallel electrical paths for each bit of the character, for example, 8 paths for 8-bit characters. Data is stored in computers in parallel form, but may be converted to serial form for certain operations.
Transmitting one or more bytes at a time using multiple communication lines.
The simultaneous transmission of all the bids making up a character or byte, either over separate channels, or on different carrier frequencies on the same channel.
Sending data from a computer down several wires simultaneously, the pulses in one wire being precisely synchronized with the pulses in the other wires.
A method of sending information whereby all the bits of a byte are sent at the same time over separate wires, as opposed to sending all the bits sequentially over a single wire (SERIAL TRANSMISSION, see also).
Simultaneous tranmission of bits down parallel wires; for example, byte parallel transmission requires eight wires. See serial port. ... more
