- The frequency spread of a signal in any part of the electromagnetic spectrum, expressed in units such as hertz, either as observed in nature or as transmitted by a piece of equipment like a cable, an antenna or a length of optical fibre
Cars & Driving
- noun a range of audio frequencies an audio component such as a car stereo can handle
- noun a measurement of the capacity of a fibre-optic cable to carry information to and from the Internet
- noun a measure of the range of frequencies that a monitor or CRT will accept and display
- noun a measure of the amount of data that can be transmitted along a cable or channel or other medium
- A range of frequencies expressed in cycles per second (Hertz). The greater the bandwidth, the more information that can be transmitted.
- An interval of frequencies which is utilized for any given purpose, such as that assigned to a TV transmitter.
- The difference between the upper and lower frequencies of a continuous frequency band, in which performance falls within certain limits with respect to a given characteristic.
- The interval of frequencies between which a device can produce a given proportion of its maximum output. Usually calculated at 50% or 90% of full power. Also called bandpass (1).
- The data transmission capacity of a communications channel, system, network, or medium. May be expressed, for instance, in bits, bytes, or cycles per second.
- A fraction of bandwidth (4) which is utilized for any given purpose.
- A band of frequencies which is passed with little or no attenuation, while all others are highly attenuated.
- noun limits such as upper and lower performance levels or work hours that define a range
- noun a range of frequencies that is used for radio or telecommunications transmission and reception
- noun the amount of data, often measured in bits per second, that a communication channel such as an Internet connection, can transmit
