CRC (Cyclical Redundancy Checking) An error checking technique used to ensure the accuracy of transmitting digital data. The transmitted messages are divided into predetermined lengths which, used as dividends, are divided by a fixed divisor. / Taylor & Francis
This handbook by Whitaker (Advance Television Systems Committee, Washington, DC) focuses on technological issues within specific microelectronic technologies and examines how they affect the push of technology that drives the next generation of microelectronics. Chapters cover semiconductor materials Semiconductor materials are insulators at absolute zero temperature that conduct electricity in a limited way at room temperature (see also Semiconductor). The defining property of a semiconductor material is that it can be doped with impurities that alter its electronic properties , thermal properties, semiconductors, metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistor field-effect transistor: see transistor. , integrated circuits Integrated circuits
Miniature electronic circuits produced within and upon a single semiconductor crystal, usually silicon. Integrated circuits range in complexity from simple logic circuits and amplifiers, about 1/20 in. (1. , digital logic families, memory devices, microprocessors, D/A D/A
