Technology / Home Audio / Input Sensitivity: Is the SPL (sound pressure level) a speaker will produce given one watt of power as measured from one meter away given a typical input frequency (usually 1khz unless otherwise noted on the speaker). Typical sensitivities for car audio speakers are around 90db/Wm. Some subwoofers and piezo horns claim over 100db/Wm. However, some manufacturers do not use true 1W tests, especially on low impedance subwoofers. Rather, they use a constant voltage test which produces more impressive sensitivity ratings.
Sensitivity Adjective Synonyms: sensitiveness, delicacy, touchiness, over-sensitivity, hypersensitivity, supersensitivity, soreness, irritability
Technology / Digital Cameras / Sensitivity: With traditional film cameras, sensitivity, also known as ISO, represents the film's sensitivity to light. A lower ISO number means that the film needs more light to take a picture than film with a hi MORE
Technology / Computers / Programmed Input-Output (PIO): A method of data transfer in which the host microprocessor transfers data to and from memory via the computer's I/O ports. PIO enables very fast data transfer rates, especially in single-tasking opera MORE
Technology / Computers / Network Basic Input - Output System (NetBIOS): A commonly used networking protocol originally developed for LANs. Operates on the Session and Transport layers of the OSI model, so doesn't make use of physical network characteristics. MORE
