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.
The process by which bits are transmitted at a fixed rate with the transmitter and receiver synchronized, eliminating the need for start/stop elements, thus providing greater efficiency.
The transmission of data in which both stations are synchronized. Codes are sent from the transmitting station to the receiving station to establish the synchronization, and data is then transmitted in continuous streams.
Communications in which the timing is achieved by sharing a single clock. Each end of the transmission synchronizes itself with the use of the clocks and information sent along with the transmitted data.
A form of data transmission in which data is sent continuously against precise time base that is shared by transmitting and receiving terminals.
A transmission in which the sending and receiving devices operate continuously at the same frequency. Synchronous transmission allows many bytes of data to be sent before acknowledgment is received from the target. Data can be transferred synchronously faster than is can be transferred asynchronously. In SCSI, only data can be sent synchronously. Commands, messages, and status are sent asynchronously.
Transmission in which the sending and receiving devices operate continuously at the same frequency and are held in a desired phase relationship by a correction device.
digital transmission in which bit information is transferred according to beat time
Data bit and characters are transmitted at a fixed rate with the transmitter and receiver synchronized at the bit and character level.
Having a constant time interval between successive bits of data or information.
A method of communication in which data is sent in blocks, without the reed for start and stop bits between each byte. Synchronization is achieved by sending a clock signal along with the data, and by sending special bit patterns to denote the start of each block.
Transmission in which data bits are sent at a fixed rate between a transmitter and receiver which are synchronised.
Digital signals are transmitted with precise clocking. Signals have the same frequency. Individual characters contained in control bits (start and stop bits) designate the beginning and end of each character.
A method of data transfer in which characters are blocked together for transmission as a group. Special synchronization characters are placed at the beginning and end of each block to delineate the start and end of the block. Contrast with asynchronous transmission.
Data transmission using synchronization bytes, instead of start/stop bits, to control the transmission.
Method of transmission where messages are sent as continuous bit streams. Each block of data is preceded by a synchronous character or character sequence and is followed by an end-of-message sequence.
Data communications using a synchronizing, or clocking, signal between sending and receiving devices.
Transmission in which data bits are sent at a fixed rate, with the transmitter and receiver synchronized.
In data communication, a method of transmission in which the sending and receiving of characters is controlled by timing signals. The sending and receiving terminals are operating continuously in step with each other.
