Asynchronous And Synchronous Communications
  • Asynchronous communications is a transmission method in which each transmitted data character is preceded by a start bit and followed by a stop bit. This permits the time interval between each character to vary. On the other hand synchronous communications does not require the start and stop bit, but do require synchronized clocks and data. (Panel of experts).
  • Pronounced "ay-sink' chroh-nuss. " A method of data communication in which the transmission of bits of data is not synchronized by a clock signal but is accomplished by sending the bits on after another, with a start bit and a stop bit to mark the beginning and end of the data unit. (QCUS+Pf-90)
