serial transmission

[′sir·ē·əl tranz′mish·ən]
(communications)
Transmission of groups of elements of a signal in time intervals that follow each other without overlapping.

serial transmission

Transmitting data one bit at a time (one bit after the other on the same wire). All types of communications networks use serial transmission, and the internal channels in computers have switched from parallel to serial data transfer. For more details, see parallel vs. serial. Contrast with parallel transmission. See serial port, SATA, PCIe and SAS.
