Definitions for "PLD"
Polycystic Liver Disease. Two types of this disease. One associated with PKD Polycystic Kidney Disease and second type where individuals have no cysts on their kidneys, only on their livers. Both of these diseases are autosomal dominant polycystic liver disease and autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease. Just recently the two two genes have been discovered through the combined work of Dr. Torres and Dr. Somlo.
Polycystic Liver Disease. An inherited disorder characterized by many cysts in the liver. Abdominal discomfort from swelling of the liver may occur however most affected individuals do not have any symptoms. In some cases, PLD appears to occur randomly with no apparent cause (sporadic). Other cases are thought to be inherited as an autosomal dominant genetic trait. Source: WebMD
A type of application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) that can be customized by the end user after assembly. See ASIC.
Programmable Logic Device. The generic name for a device constructed in such a way that the designer can configure, or "program" it to perform a specific function.
Programmable Logic Device - these ICs originally consisted of an array of AND and OR gates connected by a grid of "fuses", which could be selectively burned (programmed). Each array was invariably routed to an output pin, either through a register or just a buffer. Eventually, the fuses were replaced with electrically alterable (or erasable) gates.
Pulsed Laser Deposition Pulsed laser deposition (PLD) is an efficient method to deposit thin films by utilizing a technique called laser ablation. This invention relies on a free-space magnetic field in a pulsed laser deposition chamber for forming high-quality thin films made from diverted ions from a plume evaporated from an ablated target illuminated by a pulsed laser beam.
Pigtailed Laser Diode
Percutaneous Lumbar Discectomy. The removal of bulging disc material percutaneously through a large bore needle inserted into the disc space. The disc material is removed using laser, cutting, sucking or laser appliances. Also known as percutaneous microdiscectomy.
A raw packet protocol based on the Ethernet frame format. All frames are sent to the wireless network verbatim--should be used with care as improperly formatted data can go through with undesirable consequences.
