Audio Device

Posted by 8 May, 2017 Comments Off on Audio Device

An audio device is any device that is used for voice, audio or sound-related functions such as volume and tone controls. An audio device can be an input device where it is used to record voice and music into the computer. Or can be an output device like speakers, music players and microphones. To effectively input and output sounds from a computer, one needs a computer audio device which also provides an audio element for application of multimedia like editing of videos and playing games.  An audio device driver enables the audio hardware devices to interact effectively with the computer.

What is eSATA?

Posted by 8 May, 2017 Comments Off on What is eSATA?

External Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (eSATA) is an external interface used in data transfer and designed to work with most modern computers. It supports ATA technologies to provide internal bus interface for hard drives. Its main competitors are the USB 2.0 and Firewire 400. But eSATA is more advantageous due to its ability to transfer data at a speed three times faster. eSATA is also better because unlike the others it does not translate data from the interface to the computer thus saving on computer processor resources.

For effective use of eSATA, the computer has to have an eSATA connector or otherwise a bus card should be installed.  The eSATA drives have a limitation in that their sizes are suppressed at some point.
