Technology / Computers / Throughput: The amount of data transferred from one place to another or processed in a specified amount of time. Data transfer rates for disk drives and networks are measured in terms of throughput. Typically, throughputs are measured in Kbps, Mbps and Gbps.

High-Throughput Sequencing

Science / Genetics / High-Throughput Sequencing: A fast method of determining the order of bases in dna. MORE


Technology / Cell Phones / Multiplexing: When multiple phone calls are carried in the same frequency band at the same time. In wireless, major multiplexing methods include TDMA and CDMA. MORE

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 throughp MORE

Advanced Technology Attachment (ATA)

Technology / Computers / Advanced Technology Attachment (ATA): This is a disk drive implementation developed by the Small Form Factor (SFF) Committee that integrates the controller on the disk drive itself. There are many versions of ATA, which include ATA: Also MORE

Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI)

Technology / Computers / Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI): A local bus standard developed by Intel Corporation. Most modern PCs include a PCI bus in addition to a more general ISA expansion bus. Many analysts, however, believe that PCI will eventually supplan MORE
