Ultra (something) Direct Memory Access?


Ultrasonic means that the frequency is so high that people can't hear it. (Over 10 to 20 kHz). It was used a lot for remote controls in the seventies. Disadvantages: Dogs can still hear it. Shaking a bunch of keys could produce the same frequencies and change your TV's channel or even turn it off.

Currently infrared remote controls are used. A significant difference is that infrared beams must be directed towards the apparatus (or indirectly via a light colored wall whereas sound is much more multidirectional.


Modeling language for CPU cores. - UMPS demo

The 'new ASCII' that tries to incorporate all known symbols from all languages. It uses 16 bits per character, but there are also ways to code it so that a normal ASCII file (using only 0..127) is also a valid Unicode file. See O'Reilly's book: 'Java in A Nutshell' (ISBN: 1565924878) for $18, for example. - Search for 'unicode' About globalizing programs with Unicode etc.
