DSC

(1) (Digital Signal Controller) A microcontroller and DSP combined on the same chip. It adds the interrupt-driven capabilities normally associated with a microcontroller to a DSP, which typically functions as a continuous process. See microcontroller and DSP. See also DCS.

(2) (Digital Still Camera) See digital camera.

(3) A compression method for ultra high-definition video. See VESA Display Stream Compression.

Public entities need a permit from the DSC for surveys to be conducted 'in the field', but for surveys that will not be in-the-field surveys (such as on-line surveys), it is only necessary for the government entity to coordinate with the DSC and no permit is required.
Several of the DSC models are available with electric power for operations requiring sustainable attributes.
The DSC 8000 and 8500 feature a second generation, power controlled double furnace, designed to provide the fast heating and cooling rates needed to understand how materials behave under different conditions.
As one of the "three sacred treasures," the digital camera has been critical to the consumer electronics industry, but many DSC makers have started to experience excess inventories and deteriorating profits.
Dr Arnab Basu (CORR SPELL), chief executive of DSC, said: "This is a significant step in the development process of Durham Scientific Crystals, especially since it is just two years since we were formed.
Finally, HyperDSC is simple, without complicated math or calibration required, so anyone with basic DSC skills can perform HyperDSC experiments.
The DSC architecture provides return-to-state in seconds or minutes versus the hours or days required by traditional SAN architectures--greatly enhancing TCO by reduction of labor and time.

Positive rating action on the parent, provided that the linkages between CSC and DSC remain intact.
To date, the high-end DSC market has been dominated by more expensive CCDs because CMOS sensors have been unable to match CCDs in resolution and image quality.
The MultiStar DSC high sensitivity sensor is said to be designed to meet the demanding requirements of the polymer market for high sensitivity DSC measurements.
