A Motorola Inc. - licensed protocol that gives carriers more capacity on their networks and faster transmission times. Also refers to the FLEX family of protocols: FLEX, InFLEXion and ReFLEX25 and ReFLEX50.
A high-speed paging protocol developed by Motorola. FLEX increases paging channel capacities from 200,000 pages per channel to 600,000 pages per channel, and can operate at 1600, 3200 and 6400 baud.
The FLEX single-tasking operating system was developed by TSC of West Lafayette, Indiana, for the Motorola 6800 in the 1970s; the original version was for 8" floppy disks, and the (smaller) version for 5.25" floppies was called mini-Flex. It was also later ported to the Motorola 6809; that version was called Flex9.
