Asynchronous Transmission
  • Data transmission in which the instant that each character, or block of characters, starts is arbitrary; once started, the time of occurrence of each signal representing a bit within the character, or block, has the same relationship to significant instants of a fixed time frame. See also block, character, intercharacter interval, isochronous, plesiochronous, synchronous transmission.
