A type of pacing in which output pulses are delivered at a fixed rate with no modification due to sensing. Examples of asynchronous modes are AOO, AOOR, VOO, VOOR, DOO, and DOOR. Also known as fixed rate pacing.
A multiplexing and switching technique that organizes information Transfer Mode into fixed-length cells consisting of an identification header field and an information field. The transfer rate is asynchronous in that the recurrence of cells depends on the instantaneously required bit rate.
Referring to two or more signals which, though they have the same nominal rates, actually operate at different rates. Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) -- The CCITT standard for cell relay wherein information for multiple types of services (voice, video, data) is conveyed in small, fixed-size cells. ATM is a connection oriented technology used in both LAN and WAN environments.

Ajax applications generally use asycnhronous (or "non-blocking") calls to the server. When a call is made, a callback method is specified. Normal interaction then continues, and the callback method should soon be called and provided with the server's response.
An interaction is said to be asynchronous when the associated messages are chronologically and procedurally decoupled. For example, in a request-response interaction, the client agent can process the response at some indeterminate point in the future when its existence is discovered. Mechanisms to do this include polling, notification by receipt of another message, etc.
Of an action, that executes separately from other events or actions. Asynchronous actions are performed in such a way that other actions can be performed simultaneously. For example, in the Query Designer, queries are executed asynchronously. Because individual results are returned as they are found, you can view results or perform other actions while the query continues to search for additional results. back end The server or engine in a database system. In general, back end refers to the system that is the repository for the data, in contrast to the client, which presents data to the user. In a client/server system, the back end is the server. In an integrated database system, such as Microsoft Visual FoxPro or Microsoft Excel, the back end is the core database functionality of the product. As a rule, the back end contains the code that handles not only data storage, but indexes, validation, triggers, referential integrity, and other database functions.
Used to describe the multitude of individual events that occurs simultaneously and without relation to other events except within a larger closed system.

An asynchronous operation or function proceeds in parallel with its initiator. The initiator must check later to see if the operation or function has completed.
Refers to processes that proceed independently of each other until one process needs to "interrupt" the other process with a request. Using the client- server model, the server handles many asynchronous requests from its many clients. The client is often able to proceed with other work or must wait on the service requested from the server.
A mode of operation where an end system can ask several operations to be performed subsequently without necessarily waiting for an answer between two operations.
Description of data where the upload and download links are running at different speeds.
Vibration components that are not related to rotating speed (also referred to as nonsynchronous).
Uncoordinated development as in abnormal cell development.
A necklace or bracelet style that has a focal point that is not the centering point.

Open DataBase Connectivity (ODBC)
A process that performs its work in the background, without preventing the remainder of the application from doing its work. For example, in Visual Basic 5.0, property values of controls can be downloaded asynchronously, enabling the control to continue working even though the property has not finished downloading.
