zero wait state

Definitions

General Science

  • noun the state of a device, usually a processor or memory chip, that is fast enough to run at the same speed as the other components in a computer, so does not have to be artificially slowed down by inserting wait states

Computing

  • noun the state of a device (normally processor or memory chips) that is fast enough to run at the same speed as the other components in a computer, so does not have to be artificially slowed down by inserting wait states

Electronics

  • The execution of instructions with no wait states. SDRAM, for instance, is synchronized with the clock speed of the CPU it is running with, providing for no delays or wait states.
  • RAM, such as SDRAM, which responds to the CPU fast enough to avoid wait states.
