Capillary Array

Science / Genetics / Capillary Array: Gel-filled silica capillaries used to separate fragments for dna sequencing. The small diameter of the capillaries permit the application of higher electric fields, providing high speed, high throughput separations that are significantly faster than traditional slab gels.

Phased Array Radar

Technology / Radar / Phased Array Radar: A phased array radar uses an antenna that consists of an array of antenna elements along with signal processing that allows the antenna to be steered electronically. MORE

Pin Grid Array (PGA)

Technology / Computers / Pin Grid Array (PGA): A type of chip package in which the connecting pins are located on the bottom in concentric squares. PGA chips are particularly good for chips that have many pins, such as modern microprocessors. Comp MORE

Redundant Array of Independent Disks (RAID)

Technology / Computers / Redundant Array of Independent Disks (RAID): A category of disk drives that employ two or more drives in combination for fault tolerance and performance. RAID disk drives are used frequently on servers but aren't generally necessary for personal MORE

Video Graphics Array (VGA)

Technology / Computers / Video Graphics Array (VGA): A type of PC video display technology and adapter that supports text and graphics. VGA output is analog with a refresh rate of 31.5 KHz. VGA can also refer to any adapter of display capable of 640x480 MORE


Science / Genetics / Microarray: Sets of miniaturized chemical reaction areas that may also be used to test dna fragments, antibodies, or proteins. MORE

Capillary Bed

Science / Biology / Capillary Bed: A branching network of capillaries supplied by arterioles and drained by venules. MORE
