  1. 1. COMP TIA FLASHCARDS SET 1 (ACPI – CMOS)CIS 140, Susan K. Smith, TVCC,Fall Quarter 2011
  2. 2.  ACPI
  3. 3.  Advanced Configuration and Power Interface ACPI
  4. 4.  An open standard for unified operating system-centric device configuration and power management. ACPI
  5. 5.  ADSL
  6. 6.  Asymmetrical Digital Subscriber Line ADSL
  7. 7.  A type of DSL broadband communications technology used for connecting to the Internet. ADSL allows more data to be sent over existing copper telephone lines (POTS), when compared to traditional modem lines. ADSL
  8. 8.  AGP
  9. 9.  Accelerated Graphics Port AGP
  10. 10.  An interface specification developed by Intel Corporation. AGP is based on PCI, but is designed especially for the throughput demands of 3-D graphics. Rather than using the PCI bus for graphics data, AGP introduces a dedicated point-to-point channel so that the graphics controller can directly access main memory. AGP
  11. 11.  AMD
  12. 12.  Advanced Micro Devices AMD
  13. 13.  A manufacturer of chips for personal computers. AMD is challenging Intel with a set of Intel- compatible microprocessors. AMD
  14. 14.  AMR
  15. 15.  Audio Modem Riser AMR
  16. 16.  Create motherboards without analog I/O functions. Instead, these functions are placed on a separate card—with the codec chip--which plugs in perpendicular to the motherboard so that the motherboard and "riser" card form a right angle. AMR
  17. 17.  APIPA
  18. 18.  Automatic Private Internet Protocol Addressing APIPA
  19. 19.  With APIPA, DHCP clients can automatically self- configure an IP address and subnet mask when a DHCP server isnt available. APIPA
  20. 20.  ARP
  21. 21.  Address Resolution Protocol ARP
  22. 22.  A network layer protocol used to convert an IP address into a physical address (called a DLC address ), such as an Ethernet address.
  23. 23.  BIOS
  24. 24.  Basic Input/Output System BIOS
  25. 25.  The built-in software that determines what a computer can do without accessing programs from a disk. On PCs, the BIOS contains all the code required to control the keyboard, display screen, disk drives, serial communications, and a number of miscellaneous functions. BIOS
  26. 26.  BRI
  27. 27.  Basic Rate Interface BRI
  28. 28.  The basic ISDN configuration, which consists of two B- channels that can carry voice or data at rate of 64Kbps, and one D-channel, which carries call- control information. BRI
  29. 29.  BTX
  30. 30.  Balanced Technology eXtended BTX
  31. 31.  The BTX specification provides new tools and design space for developers to lay out desktop systems, whether designing small, compact systems or very large, expandable systems.
  32. 32.  CD-ROM
  33. 33.  Compact Disc- Read Only Memory CD-ROM
  34. 34.  A type of optical disk capable of storing large amounts of data, up to 1GB, although the most common size is 650MB (megabytes). CD-ROM
  35. 35.  CD-RW
  36. 36.  Compact Disc- ReWritable CD-RW
  37. 37.  A type of CD disk that enables you to write onto it in multiple sessions. CD-RW
  38. 38.  CDFS
  39. 39.  Compact Disc File System CDFS
  40. 40.  The Windows 95 driver for CD-ROM players. CDFS
  41. 41.  CGA
  42. 42.  Color/Graphics Adapter CGA
  43. 43.  An old graphics system for PCs. Introduced in 1981 by IBM, CGA was the first color graphics system for IBM PCs. CGA
  44. 44.  CMOS
  45. 45.  Complementary Metal-Oxide Semiconductor CMOS
  46. 46.  A widely used type of semiconductor. CMOS
  47. 47. Set 1 - Complete
