transceiver

[tran′sē·vər]
(computer science)
A computer terminal that can transmit and receive information to and from an input/output channel.
(electronics)
A radio transmitter and receiver combined in one unit and having switching arrangements such as to permit both transmitting and receiving. Also known as transmitter-receiver.

transceiver

A combination of a radio transmitter and receiver, both of which are enclosed in a common case and share common circuits. Also called a transreceiver.

transceiver

Transmitter-receiver. The physical device that connects a host interface (e.g. an Ethernet controller) to a local area network. Ethernet transceivers contain electronics that apply signals to the cable and sense other host's signals and collisions. See also CSMA/CD.

transceiver

(TRANSmitter reCEIVER) An electronic device or circuit that transmits and receives analog or digital signals, either wired or wireless. Transceivers come in many forms; for example, a satellite transponder is a transceiver. Ethernet adapters and cellphones also contain transceivers. See radio, base station and transponder.
