architecture-independent

Definitions

Electronics

  • computer software or hardware which is designed to work properly with more than one type of architecture. An interpreter version of LISP is architecture-independent, as is Java. This contrasts with architecture-dependent, in which software or hardware is designed to work properly only with a specific architecture. Also called architecture neutral, cross-platform, platform-independent, or multiplatform.
