An auxiliary signal used to help synchronize the real data in an electrical bus when the bus components have no common clock. It can also indicate the start/end of a block of data. The strobe can be encoded with a different potential or time-length in the physical data wire. Sometimes the strobe can use a dedicated physical wire in the bus (example, the strobe pin in the parallel bus).
Study, control, and application of the conduction of electricity through gases or vacuum or through semiconducting or conducting materials.
The study and use of electrical devices that operate by controlling the flow of electrons or other electrically charged particles or by converting the flow of charged particles to or from other forms of energy.
