Definitions for "Dropout"
Momentary loss of recorded audio or video signal during playback, due to imperfections in the tape.
Videotape signal voids, viewed as fleeting white specks or streaks. Usually result of tiny "bare spots" on a tape's magnetic particle coating caused by dirt or tape debris blocking video information signals.
self-disconnection due to supply characteristics out of design limits.

The part of the frame and fork that the wheels are bolted into.
Dropouts in their most common forms are the slotted plates on your frame or fork that your wheels bolt into. They usually come in pairs and they can be found in the front or rear. Some dropouts have vertical slots and some have horizontal slots. They vary widley in shape, size, thickness and general design but they all provide a place to secure the hub axle in some way or another.
The slot in frame or fork that the axle slides in when installing a wheel.

A halftone in which the extreme highlights do not reproduce.

The lower limit of the AC input voltage where the power supply just begins to experience insufficient input to maintain regulation. The dropout voltage for linears is quite load dependent. For most switchers it is largely design dependent, and to a smaller degree load dependent.
A discrete voltage loss. A voltage sag (complete or partial) for a very short period of time (milliseconds) constitutes a dropout.
The minimum input voltage that is insufficient to maintain full regulation of the outputs of a battery charger or power supply.
a source whose radiation disappears shortward of a given filter
Use of colored lamps or filters inside a scanner in conjunction with specially printed forms, in order to make certain pre-printed text or rulings invisible in the scanned image. This aids character recognition and results in smaller image files.
In astronomy, dropout is a radiation source whose radiation intensity falls off sharply above a specific wavelength. The source will be easily visible when its light is filtered to wavelengths longer than the cutoff value, but will "drop out" of the image when it is filtered to wavelengths shorter than the threshold.
