Definitions for "Pulses"
The edible seeds of various leguminous crops, such as peas, beans, and lentils. Also called legumes.
a family of plants producing seeds in pods which are of high nutritional value and includes peas, beans, mung beans and lentils (also known as legumes)
The seeds of certain plants that can be eaten. For example, peas, beans and lentils.
In addition to the synchronous Send/Receive/Reply services, QNX Neutrino also supports fixed-size, nonblocking messages known as pulses. These carry a small payload (four bytes of data plus a single byte code). A pulse is also one form of event that can be returned from an ISR or a timer. See MsgDeliverEvent() for more information.
The general term "pulses" is used in this context to describe the broad category of wave shapes referred to as "surge currents," "start-up currents," "inrush currents," and "transients," Electrical pulse conditions can vary considerably from one application to another. Different fuse constructions may not all react the same to a given pulse condition. Electrical pulses produce thermal cycling and possible mechanical fatigue that could affect the life of the fuse. The start-up pulse should be defined and then compared to the time-current curve and l2t rating for the fuse. Nominal melting l2t is a measure of the energy required to melt the fusing element and is pressed as "Ampere Squared Seconds" (A2 Sec.).
