The Decoder is the Code Warrior version of a disassembler, and converts object or absolute files into an assembly source code listing file. If the original code was in C, then it shows the original C code as well as the assembly instruction equivalent of the C code (which can be a great way to dissect a C program). See also the "Disassembler" entry below.

A device or program routine that converts coded data back to its original form. This can mean changing unreadable or encrypted codes into readable text or changing one code to another, although the latter type of decoding is usually referred to as conversion. Compare conversion. 2. In electronics and hardware, a type of circuit that produces one or more selected output signals based on the combination of input signals it receives.
(n.) A facility that decompresses data that has been encoded or compressed by an encoder. A decoder can be implemented in hardware, software, or a combination of both.

A device used to recover the component signals from a composite (encoded) source.
As part of a bar code reading system, the electronic package that receives the signals from the scanner, performs the algorithm to interpret the signals into meaningful data, and provides the interface to other devices.
See "codec." A device or program that translates encoded data into its original format (i.e., it decodes the data.)
Converts a particular encoded data format, such as MS-ADPCM or MPEG-1 video into a format that the output device can understand.
A program that takes data that has been encoded, or compressed by an encoder and decompresses it. A decoder can be implemented in hardware, software, or a combination of both. The decompressed data may or may not match the original data set exactly, depending on how the data was encoded. ( See also lossless compression and lossy compression.)
The process of converting an MP3 to WAV. This may be done in order to edit your WAV file.
Television set-top device that enables a home subscriber to convert an electronically scrambled television picture into a viewable signal. Should not be confused with a digital coder/decoder known as a codec, which is used with digital transmissions.
Software that converts coded data back into its original, uncompressed form. MP3 players "decode" MP3 by being able to play the data format as audio. However, the term usually refers to the process of converting MP3 to WAV
The electronic package that receives signals from a scanner, translates the signals into meaningful data, and interfaces to other devices.
A circuit or device that restores a coded signal to its original form based on knowledge of the process used to code the signal.
A software or hardware means of translating bar codes into alphanumeric data. A bar code reader is required to scan the information into the decoder.
As part of a bar code reading system, the electronics that process the signals from the scanner, interpret the signals into meaningful data, and control the interface to other devices.
The Radar Decoder correlates the received signal with the code used at transmission, generating the equivalent pulse-radar signal (digital). This process greatly reduces the output data rate over directly sampling with the Radar Interface, but requires that the ephemeris be very well known, so that the bins don't smear into one another. Decoding is an irreversible process, because phase information is lost, and, in order to actually reduce the data rate, you need to only keep part of the range information.
