shift register

[′shift ‚rej·ə·stər]
(computer science)
A computer hardware element constructed to perform shifting of its contained data.

shift register

A high-speed circuit that holds some number of bits for the purpose of shifting them left or right. It is used internally within the processor for multiplication and division, serial/parallel conversion and various timing considerations. See register.

In case of a hybrid solution, at each iteration, the results of the partial sum of the FIR outputs are fed back to the sum shift register block in Figure 5 and added coherently to the current value at a given iteration.
The shift register is responsible for selectively enabling a single prediction state, thus only one bit in the shift register should ever have a value of 1.
A linear feedback shift register includes two parts: one shifting registry composed of one string of bits whose number determines the length of the registry and a feedback function.
Output current is adjustable (up to 100 mA/channel) using an external resistor ([R.sub.EXT]), and the serial interface with Schmitt trigger inputs includes an integrated shift register. Additionally, an internal data register stores the currently displayed data.
