Because of its small size, low power consumption, and light weight, flash memory is frequently
the secondary storage of choice.
For mobile and portable use, flash memory has the additional advantages of being relatively
immune to failure due to physical s
5) Give a general description of the types of information contained in a "packet."
As in the test book, in USB system: each packet contains a device identifier and a small set of
data, representing all or a portion of the data to be transferred by that de
9) What is NaNs and Denormalized Numbers?
In computing, NaN standing for not a number, is a numeric data type value representing an
undefined or unrepresentable value.  It can be or complex numbers. It can also been
assigned to a variables representing
Machine language is the actual bits use
Metadata in simple is a data which is used to describe data, it contains the description
information of the information resources. Metadata is defined as the data providing information
about one or more aspects of the data; it
2) What are the benefits of the top-down approach to system architecture?
As I know there are two distinct ways of system architectures, the top-down and bottom-up
approaches. As far as I was concerned, the top-down architecture tend to break down a huge
5) Caching recently used data and instructions is an important performance
Since the amount of cache memory is small compared to main storage, cache
memory also has a speed advantage beyond the use of fas

15) What are the advantages of digital transmission over analog transmission? (ch 14)
Produces fewer errors: Easier to detect and correct errors, since transmitted data is binary (1s
and 0s, only two distinct values)
Permits higher maximum transmission ra
