Komoponentne veze između dva ili više odvojenih podsistema; interfejs može biti: ili hardverska komponenta koja povezuje dva uređaja ili deo memorije, ili registri koje koriste dva ili više računarskih programa.
Veza između računara i osobe koja pokušava da radi sa njim. Tastatura je interfejs, monitor takođe. Kada udarite računar pesnicom, i to se može smatrati interfejsom.
1. The point at which a connection is made between two elements so that they can work with each other or exchange information.
2. Software that enables a program to work with the user (the user interface, which can be a command-line interface, menu-driven interface, or a graphical user interface), with another program such as the operating system, or with the computer’s hardware. See also application programming interface, graphical user interface.
3. A card, plug, or other device that connects pieces of hardware with the computer so that information can be moved from place to place. For example, standardized interfaces such as RS-232-C standard and SCSI enable communications between computers and printers or disks. See also RS-232-C standard, SCSI.
(Computer science) Hardware and associated circuitry that links one device with another (especially a computer and a hard disk drive or other peripherals); SYN. port.
A program that controls a display for the user (usually on a computer monitor) and that allows the user to interact with the system; SYN. user interface.
In computing, the point of contact between two programs or pieces of equipment. The term is most often used for the physical connection between the computer and a peripheral device, which is used to compensate for differences in such operating characteristics as speed, data coding, voltage, and power consumption. For example, a printer interface is the cabling and circuitry used to transfer data from a computer to a printer, and to compensate for differences in speed and coding.
Common standard interfaces include the Centronics interface, used to connect parallel devices, and the RS232 interface, used to connect serial devices. For example, in many microcomputer systems, an RS232 interface is used to connect the microcomputer to a modem, and a Centronics device is used to connect it to a printer.
(programming) Interface is group of logically or semantically related routines which provide communication betweena provider of a service (server object) and its clients.
1. An interface through which data is transferred between a computer and other devices (such as a printer, mouse, keyboard, or monitor), a network, or a direct connection to another computer. The port appears to the CPU as one or more memory addresses that it can use to send or receive data. Specialized hardware, such as in an add-on circuit board, places data from the device in the memory addresses and sends data from the memory addresses to the device. Ports may also be dedicated solely to input or to output. Ports typically accept a particular type of plug used for a specific purpose. For example, a serial data port, a keyboard, and a high-speed network port all use different connectors, so it’s not possible to plug a cable into the wrong port. Also called: input/output port.
2. port number.
In computing, a socket that enables a computer processor to communicate with an external device. It may be an input port (such as a joystick port), or an output port (such as a printer port), or both (an i/o port).
Microcomputers may provide ports for cartridges, televisions and/or monitors, printers, and modems, and sometimes for hard discs and musical instruments (MIDI, the musical-instrument digital interface). Ports may be serial or parallel.A signal input (access) or output point on a computer.
