A collection of data, as in video or audio data compressed to a file or transmitted between devices.
Digital data, usually encoded, designed to be processed sequentially and continuously.
Found in DAC's, this is a method of processing digital data and converting it into an Analogue signal. Bitstream processes single Bits of information rapidly one after another to create a smooth flowing audio signal.
This is data transmitted in a continuous stream (i.e., there are no breaks between characters).
One method of turning digital CD data into analogue signals. Bitstream digital-to-analogue converters process single bits of digital data much faster than multibit DACs, which work on chunks of digital data.
a chunk of memory that represents input-output buffer
a memory buffer containing raw binary data
a sequence of data that follows some particular coding format and represents a compressed sound when its length is shorter than the sound it represents
a stream of data that contains location information for logic on a device, that is, the placement of Configurable Logic Blocks (CLBs), Input/Output Blocks (IOBs), (TBUFs), pins, and routing elements
Refers to a stream of bits transmitted over a communications line between two devices. A bit is the smallest element of information in the digital system.
A signal that contains digital data in its undecoded state. An example is the signal that's fed through a DVD player's digital output(s), which carries Dolby Digital, DTS, or PCM signals.
A fast method of converting digital data (from CD, DVD or MD) into analogue signals.
A continuous series of transmitted bits.
A Process of converting digital data into analogue signals.
This is the digital form of multiple channel audio data (e.g., 5.1-channel) before it is decoded into its various channels.
A data stream which is processed sequentially, like Dolby Digital sound on a DVD.
Data that is transmitted between systems carrying audio, video, data, and signaling.
a sequence of bits transmitted across an electronic link. The software controlling the link is unaware of any structure inherent in the bitstream data.
Flow of continuous streaming data, measured in bits. Refers to the particular technical characteristics (size, mode, rate) of the digital transmission.
A bitstream or bit stream is a time series of bits. A bytestream is a series of bytes, typically of 8 bits each, and can be regarded as a special case of a bitstream.
