Computer Glossary

Glossary of Computer Terms:

AMD (Advanced Micro Devices): A manufacturer of chips for personal computers.

ATA (Advanced Technology Attachment): A type of disk drive that integrates the drive controller directly on the drive itself.

Bit: A bit is the smallest unit of measurement for electronic data. A bit is one "on or off" signal. The number of bits determines how much information your computer can store and retrieve. Eight bits equals one byte.

Bluetooth: Bluetooth provides a way to connect and exchange information between devices such as mobile phones, laptops, PCs, printers, digital cameras, and video game consoles over a secure, globally unlicensed short-range radio frequency.

Blu-ray: A high-definition DVD format capable of displaying 1920×1080 (1080p) video. It uses a 405nm wavelength blue-violet laser, in contrast to the 650nm-wavelength red laser technology used in traditional DVD formats. The rewritable Blu-ray disc, with a data transfer rate of 36MBps, can hold up to 27GB of data on a single-sided single layer disc (compared to the traditional DVD's 4.7GB capacity), which amounts to about 12 hours of standard video or more than 2 hours of high-definition video.
