ARM - Advanced RISC Machines
One of a family of processors based on RISC architecture
CISC - Complex Instruction Set Computer
Processors designed with full set of instructions to provide functions in the most efficient way.
COB – Chip on Board
A chip-on -board is a chip that is wired and bonded onto a motherboard
COM - Computer on Module
Computer-on-Modules otherwise known as System on Chips are tiny-sized, but fully-featured development boards consisting of a microprocessor, RAM, I/O and a host of other functionality.
DVI – Digital Visual Interface
An interface used to transmit digital video content onto a display.
EMC - Electromagnetic Compatibility
Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) is the concept of enabling different electronics devices to operate without interfering with each other.
ESD – Electrostatic Discharge
The release of static electricity when two different charged objects come into contact with each other.
HDMI – High-Definition Multimedia Interface
An interface used to transfer high definition video and audio over a single cable.
I2C -Inter Integrated Circuit
