Baud

A measure of signals per second that are transmitted over copper telephone wire. With increased speed, bauds largely have been replaced with bits per second. It is abbreviated Bd.

From the calculated baud rate a one element length [t.sub.s], so called Cycle Matrix time-slot, needs to be determined using the following formula:
Furthermore, it is possible to design separate RS232 interfaces according to some specific required baud rates. However, before selecting a particular baud rate, the TIM must be tested under practical conditions without solely depending on mathematical calculations.
Our goal is to understand how ANT transmits messages and uses the bandwidth and to verify if ANT offers the same theoretical baud rate with burst transmission rate.
The baud rate of the CAN bus for this test was set at 250 kbit/s.
The speed at which this happens depends on the baud rate at which the user is communicating with the provider's computer.
Many times only the baud rate will need to be adjusted.
[10] Modems are classified according to their baud rate. Basically, the baud rate indicates how rapidly a modem can receive or transmit data.
Since the modem determines the baud rate, and therefore the speed of transmission, how can one transfer protocol be faster than another?
There are personal computers using the CRC that are CPU bound during I/O, which must therefore slow down the BAUD rate of the interface.
For example, recent advances in coherent technology enable software control of the modulation mode and baud rate, which then allows the same hardware to be used in multiple parts of a network (edge, metro, long-haul and submarine) resulting in a cost-effective way for network operators to scale their networks.
The testing utilized Cisco NCS 1004 flexibility to adjust modulation format and baud rate to achieve the maximum data throughput over different distances.
The RTV 2602 supports up to four independently clocked Serial FPDP links using copper or optical cables with single-mode or multimode fibre with flexible baud rate selection to support virtually all popular Serial FPDP interfaces.
