operating in both directions; bidirectional APS allows protection switching to be initiated by either end of the line
Going in two directions.
Mode that is capable of transmitting data in both directions but not at the same time. In some cases this mode is required by printers. Show related articles
reactive or functioning or allowing movement in two usually opposite directions
The ability to transmit signals in two directions.
a characteristic of relations between two concepts, in that they can be expressed in the two opposing directions, from Concept to concept and vice versa, and often require different names in each direction (as in ' Mary has parent John / John parent of Mary').
adj. (of a stream) being both an input stream and an output stream.
When signals can pass in either direction through the same port or by the same path.
The movement of optical signals in opposite directions through a common fiber cable.
Capable of moving in either of two directions at any given time.
The ability for light to transmit in both directions through a fiber. Learn more about Bidirectional...
Capable of operating in either of two directions which are the opposite of each other. For example, a tag which can be read or written from either side is bi-directional.
A term for a parallel printer connection or an external peripheral in which data flows regularly in both directions between computer and printer.
adj. Describes a type of device or bus that supports two-way data transfers. To reduce wiring, connectors, and pin counts, it's common to share data on one bus. Data can move from device A to B or from B to A, though not at the same time. Contrast with unidirectional. EXAMPLE: A bidirectional data bus is present on pretty much every microprocessor. A single bus transfers data to and from memory and I/O. Control signals police the transfers, ensuring that there are no attempts to transfer data in both directions at the same time.
Operating in both directions. Bidirectional couplers operate the same way regardless of the direction light passes through them. Bidirectional transmission sends signals in both directions, sometimes through the same fiber.
Any RF component which works equally well in both directions. It can also be referred to as dual-directional. Antennas are almost always bi-directional while amplifiers are never so.
