Data (computing)

Data is any sequence of one or more symbols given meaning by specific act of interpretation. Data or datum – a single unit of data requires interpretation to become information. To translate data to information, there must be several known factors considered. The factors involved are determined by the creator of the data and the desired information. The term metadata is used to reference the data about the data. Metadata may be implied, specified or given. Data relating to physical events or processes will also have a temporal component. In almost all cases this temporal component is impli ...


In computer architecture, 12-bit integers, memory addresses, or other data units are those that are 12 bits wide. Also, 12-bit CPU and ALU architectures are those that are based on registers, address buses, or data buses of that size. Possibly the best-known 12-bit CPU is the PDP-8 and its relatives, such as the Intersil 6100 microprocessor produced in various incarnations from August 1963 to mid-1990. Many analog to digital converters ADCs have a 12-bit resolution. Some PIC microcontrollers use a 12-bit word size. 12 binary digits, or 3 nibbles a tribble, have 4096 10000 octal, 1000 hexad ...


In computer architecture, 18-bit integers, memory addresses, or other data units are those that are 18 bits wide. Also, 18-bit CPU and ALU architectures are those that are based on registers, address buses, or data buses of that size. 18 binary digits have 262 144 1000000 octal, 40000 hexadecimal distinct combinations. 18 bits was a common word size for smaller computers in the 1960s, when large computers often used 36 bit words and 6-bit character sets were the norm. There were also 18-bit teletypes experimented with in the 1940s.

Attribute (computing)

In computing, an attribute is a specification that defines a property of an object, element, or file. It may also refer to or set the specific value for a given instance of such. For clarity, attributes should more correctly be considered metadata. An attribute is frequently and generally a property of a property. However, in actual usage, the term attribute can and is often treated as equivalent to a property depending on the technology being discussed. An attribute of an object usually consists of a name and a value; of an element, a type or class name; of a file, a name and extension. I ...

Change data capture

In databases, change data capture is a set of software design patterns used to determine and track the data that has changed so that action can be taken using the changed data. CDC is an approach to data integration that is based on the identification, capture and delivery of the changes made to enterprise data sources. CDC occurs often in data-warehouse environments since capturing and preserving the state of data across time is one of the core functions of a data warehouse, but CDC can be utilized in any database or data repository system.

Common Source Data Base

Technical documentation is used in many areas of the everyday life. Nearly everything has to be provided with at minimum a drawing including a few locators. The product liability and many other issues regarding consumer protection have to be covered inside technical documentation. A special form of technical documentation is electronic technical documentation, a further subform is interactive electronic technical documentation. The complexity of IETD especially regarding the huge mass of data elements, their linkage and the version management issuing and release process must be controlled ...


AS3 (networking)

AS3, RFC 4823, is a standard by which vendor applications communicate structured business-to-business data over the Internet using File Transfer Protocol. It is an EDI protocol.


Fuzzy backup

A fuzzy backup is a secondary copy of data file or directories that were in one state when the backup started, but in a different state by the time the backup completed. This may result in the backup copy being unusable because of the data inconsistencies. Although the backup process might have seemed successful, the resultant copies of the files or directories could be useless because a restore would yield inconsistent and unusable data.


Stellar Photo Recovery

Stellar Photo Recovery previously known as Stellar Phoenix Photo Recovery is a multimedia files recovery utility for both Windows and Mac based computers and is developed by Stellar. It can recover Photos, Videos and Music files lost due to accidental deletion, corruption, or formatting of internal or external hard drives, SD memory cards, USB flash drives or any other storage media.
