In addition, the driver IC incorporates diode emulation mode circuitry to improve light-load efficiency, while an adaptive dead time control helps to further improve efficiency at all load points.
Verification of boundary scan structures at the chip level and the related BSDL files can be automated by an emulation mode. The probe is compatible with the company's boundary scan controllers based on PCI, PXI, VXI, RS-232, parallel port, GPIB, PCMCIA, USB, and Fast Ethernet.
Additional features include full piconet participation, in which the system is capable of probing while acting as a full member of the piconet error injection to test the robustness of the device under stress and validate Baseband and LMP implementation by injecting errors into the Bluetooth traffic; real-time statistics; enhanced error and traffic summaries; automatic decoding of all HCRP traffic; HCI Capture mode; BTTrainer Recording Mode; comprehensive profiles for Exerciser's Device Emulation Mode; and automatic device listing.
At least three times, I attempted to print out the manual; each time, at about printed page 85, the form feed on my Seikosha SL-80AI printer (in IBM Graphics Printer emulation mode) simply went berserk!
With cloud-based payment solutions, and more specifically host card emulation solutions, the access to the secure element is not necessary as the mobile OS can directly communicate over the near field communication (NFC) interface in card emulation mode. Therefore, the time to market is minimized and total cost of implementation is optimised when a direct channel between service providers and consumers is created.
A special capability of this system is its modem emulation mode where the MT8801C functions as a modem in Windows 2000 [TM] to establish a remote access service (RAS) point-to-point protocol (PPP) connection between a mobile station and an application server.
* Will your PC operate in a TTY terminal emulation mode?
Demonstration of mobile face-to-face payments with NFC Host Card Emulation mode - NFC is one of the several technologies that can enable the use of mobile for face-to-face payment.
These built in keyboard emulation modes eliminates the need to relearn keystrokes so that even beginners can be productive immediately.
It currently supports the TCP/IP network protocol, as well as a wide variety of terminal emulation modes, including 3270, WYSE60, ANSI, AT386, VT320, BA80 and SNI97801 (7-bit, 8-bit).
There is no universal standard for the software codes - or, emulation modes - that printers use to communicate with computers.
In addition, CRiSP has complete emulation modes for brief, vi, emacs, wordstar, and edt, thus eliminating the need to learn a new keyboard layout.
