Pressure sensing

Pressure sensing is the ability to measure pressure. This can be done with a variety of different devices, including pressure sensors, pressure gauges, and pressure transducers. Pressure sensors are typically used to measure the pressure of fluids, gas, or air. Pressure gauges are used to measure the pressure of a variety of different substances, including … Read more

Von Neumann bottleneck

The Von Neumann bottleneck is a limitation of traditional computer architectures that occurs when the CPU (central processing unit) is required to both perform calculations and access memory. This can lead to a bottleneck in the system as the CPU can only perform one task at a time. One way to overcome the Von Neumann … Read more

S-Video (Super-Video, Y/C Video, component video)

S-Video is a video signal that is split into two components: luminance and chrominance. The luminance component (Y) carries the black and white information, while the chrominance component (C) carries the color information. S-Video provides a sharper picture than composite video, but does not provide the same level of detail as component video. Is Ypbpr … Read more


A printer is a device that enables you to output a hard copy of digital data from your computer. Printers come in a variety of different technologies, including inkjet, laser, and thermal. Many printers also offer additional features, such as the ability to print on both sides of a page (duplex printing) or to print … Read more

Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI)

Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) is a specification that defines a software interface between an operating system and platform firmware. UEFI is meant to replace the Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) firmware interface, present in all IBM PC-compatible personal computers. UEFI can support remote diagnostics and repair of computers, even with no operating system installed. UEFI … Read more

Organic thin-film transistor (OTFT)

An organic thin-film transistor (OTFT) is a type of field-effect transistor (FET) that uses an organic semiconductor in its active layer. OTFTs can be used in a variety of electronic devices, including displays, sensors, and logic circuits. One of the key advantages of OTFTs is that they can be fabricated using a variety of deposition … Read more

VAX (Virtual Address eXtension)

The VAX (Virtual Address eXtension) was a line of minicomputers developed and manufactured by Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC) in the 1970s and 1980s. The VAX-11/780, introduced on October 25, 1977, was the first of a successful range of computers that followed the basic architecture of the PDP-11 series but with an extended address space that … Read more

Entangled light-emitting diode (ELED)

An entangled light-emitting diode (ELED) is a type of LED that is specially designed to emit light that is entangled with the light from another LED. This allows the two LEDs to share information and communicate with each other without the need for any physical connection. What is LED fabrication? LED fabrication is the process … Read more
