input/output

[′in‚pu̇t ′au̇t‚pu̇t]
(computer science)
Pertaining to all equipment and activity that transfers information into or out of a computer. Abbreviated I/O.

input/output

(programming, operating system)
(I/O) Communication between a computer and its users, its storage devices, other computers (via a network) or the outside world. The devices the computer uses to do this are called "peripherals". What actually counts as I/O depends on what level of detail you are considering, e.g. communication between processors would not be considered I/O when considering a multiprocessor as a single system.

Important aspects of I/O are throughput, latency, and whether the communications is synchronous or asynchronous (using some kind of buffer).

Hydraulic systems, which ordinarily use positive displacement input-output devices such as pumps, actuators and motors, transfer energy by means of potential energy changes in the fluid transfer medium, that is, by virtue of hydrostatic fluid pressure level differentials, [DELTA]p.
Input-output devices are those that both input information into a computer and also carry that information out of the computer once processed.
* fabrication yield and reliability resulting in the economic viability of the submicron processes * supply voltage and input-output devices (I/Os) compatible with existing technologies * effective availability of parts to system designers and actual performance compared with the best of prototype parts * historic technological strategic and developmental choices of the various IC suppliers.
When we add up the cost of not having good input-output devices for the many people who can compute but find it cumbersome, we can conclude that the cost of efficient new devices would pay for themselves many times over.
