hardware acceleration- execution of a program or decoding of a multimedia stream in the optimal mode for this hardware configuration. A program optimized for one hardware configuration will not run optimally on another, i.e. will be executed on software acceleration.
Modern central (computing) processors in computers, including in pocket (smartphones), can cope with any task from the addition of two numbers to the possibilities of artificial intelligence. However, the versatility of the central processor leads to the fact that some tasks it performs better, and some worse. Any processor is always better coping with the task for which it is intended. Modern central processors include many multifunctional blocks. If the processor processes the data stream using software acceleration, arbitrary blocks are activated. When tasks are performed on the blocks for which they are intended, they say that the task is performed on a hardware acceleration, which is several times faster than the software.

To this, add "insensitivity" of a good outlayer to the formats of infined information fragments (it can be HTML and RTF fragments, images, etc.) and the property of the "non-discovery of the file", i.e. the compactness of the presentation (in fact Such a sharp "landing" from general ideas to the stringent reality requirements are not a whim - some implementations of outlines, for example, store one hierarchy in the RTF format file, characterized by an extremely inefficient presentation of binary data, which simultaneously "inflates" the file and leads to wilderness. The voraciousness "of the program, reducing all its advantages to zero).

A-GPS(Assisted GPS) is a function used to speed up positioning (both during a cold start and a hot start). For A-GPS operation, hardware support is required (a special chip). A-GPS speeds up positioning in two ways. First, by downloading satellite position data (ephemeris) from the Internet (this can happen eitherWi-Fiso throughMobile Internet). The second, determining the location with an accuracy of 2 km to 20 m at the base stations of the cellular operator (measuring the distance to the stations by the signal level). For the performance of the second method, it is required that the device support the work in cellular networks and be connected to any network. For the first method to work, in addition, an active connection to the Internet is required. In most cases, A-GPS is used in conjunction withGPS, but there are devices in which only A-GPS is integrated, the positioning accuracy is greatly reduced.

Although in fact, WCDMA is not a data transmission standard, but a technology of broadband code division multiple access, on the basis of which all high-speed data transmission standards are built ( EV-DO , UMTS , HSPA , LTE ).

Wi-Fi , Wi-Fi , Wi-Fi (English, abbr. from wireless fidelity - literally wireless accuracy) - a wireless communication standard designed to organize wireless local area networks and transmit data wirelessly. A mid-range wireless channel, usually one transceiver, allows you to cover an apartment or office. Wi-Fi operation is carried out over the radio channel at 2.4, 5 GHz frequencies and is defined by the IEEE 802.11 standard.
IEEE 802.11 standard specifications
IEEE 802.11a
IEEE 802.11b
IEEE 802.11d
IEEE 802.11e
IEEE 802.11f
IEEE 802.11g
IEEE 802.11h
IEEE 802.11i
IEEE 802.11j
IEEE 802.11n
IEEE 802.11ac
Devices that support the IEEE 802.11a standard work in the 5 GHz frequency band and provide a bit rate of up to 54 Mbps.
Now the most common 802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11n.
The IEEE 802.11b support devices operate in the frequency range of 2.4 GHz and provide bit speed up to 11 Mbps. IEEE 802.11g support devices operate in the frequency range of 2.4 GHz and provide bit speed up to 54 Mbps. The 802.11 Super G support devices are capable of providing bit speed up to 108 Mbps. The 802.11n support devices allow to operate in frequency ranges of 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz (some devices support simultaneous operations in two ranges), provide bit speed up to 600 Mbps, support multiant technologies (MIMO), new coding and modulation methods. In fact, most devices that manufacturers assign support for 802.11n supports support its specifications only partially, therefore such devices are wicked by bit speed no more than 300 (less often 450) Mbps; There are no multiant systems in mobile devices, and therefore MIMO is not supported, therefore the maximum Wi-Fi connection speed is even lower. The 802.11ac device support devices are the most advanced solution, allow you to operate in frequency ranges of 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz (some devices support simultaneous operation in two ranges), provide bit speed up to 1300 Mbps.
Remark 1 . In order for the channel to transmit at the indicated speeds, both devices must maintain the required standard.
Remark 2 . The user data transfer rate is usually 2-4 times lower than the bit rate specified in the device characteristics. With the deterioration of the environment and noise conditions, the user data transfer rate decreases even more. Part of the bandwidth is allocated for service needs, even in ideal conditions, the user data transfer rate cannot exceed 98% of the bit rate at which the devices operate.
Remark 3 . The specified maximum bit rate in the 802.11n and 802.11ac standards is achieved only when using multi-antenna systems on both devices involved in data exchange.

The standards define the typical range of wireless devices. For 802.11g indoor devices:
• 30–40 meters at a speed of 54 Mbps;
• 80–100 meters at a speed of 1 Mbps.

• 150–200 meters at a speed of 54 Mbps;
• 400–500 meters at a speed of 1 Mbps.

WiMAX (eng., abbr. from Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access) is a telecommunications technology designed to provide universal wireless communications over long distances. Combines the advantages of technology Wi-FI and technology data transmission in mobile cellular networks. WiMAX is a network of larger scale, such as the scale of a city, the range of a WiMAX transmitter reaches 50 km. WiMAX allows you to maintain connection and transfer data even when the user moves with great speed. One WiMAX transmitter provides a larger connection (rather than Wi-FI ) the number of users without losing speed. In addition to Internet access, WiMAX can be used for high-quality voice and video communications, broadcasting radio stations and television.

WP (English, abbr. from windows phone) - an operating system for mobile devices, developed by Microsoft. Often confused with Windows Mobile, even though these operating systems have the same roots, they are completely different and not compatible with each other.

In the first revisions of the standard, the maximum theoretical data transfer rate was 14.4 kbit / s, in the last one the speed rose to 115.2 kbit / s. Is the predecessor of the family CDMA-2000 .

CDMA-2000 or IMT-MC - the second most popular after GSM digital mobile cellular standards family. Includes standards CDMA2000 1xRTT and CDMA2000 1xEV-DO .

CDMA2000 1xRTT or IS-2000 (eng., abbr. from Interim Standard 2000) or abbreviated 1x - the first standard of wireless data transmission (Internet access) in cellular networks of the family CDMA-2000 . Is an evolution of the standard CDMA-One . Allows you to transfer data with a maximum theoretical speed of 153 kbps. In reality, the speed is 80-100 kbps.

CDMA2000 1xEV-DO (Eng. Single carrier EVolution-Data Only - the evolution of data transmission on a single carrier) is often reduced to EV-DO or EV - standard of wireless high-speed data transmission (broadband Internet access) in cellular networks of the family CDMA-2000 . Is an evolution of the standard CDMA2000 1xRTT , doubles the channel capacity (data transfer rate) of each subscriber and the maximum possible number of subscribers. It uses both technology of code division of channels, and technology of temporary division of channels. Allows you to transfer data with a maximum theoretical speed of 3.2 Mbps, in practice, the speed is 500-1000 kbit / s.

CM - the same as Cyanogen

CSC - This is part of the firmware on Samsung android devices, which determines the regional firmware settings. It contains part of the programs with national localization.

Cydia - a program that comes with a jailbreak (iOS hacking), which allows you to install applications that are not officially supported by Apple. Third-party applications are installed from special sites called repositories.

S-off - method unlocking bootloader HTC devices running the Android operating system. Analog Hard SPL in windows mobile. S-Off allows you to use informal firmware by disabling authentication in loader and removing the secuflag protection, i.e. S-Off, makes it possible to overwrite the logical partitions "system" and "recovery" located on the built-in drive.

Soft-touch - the covering, to the touch reminding velvet rubber. This coating is less susceptible to the appearance of small scratches, fingerprints and does not slip in your hand.

SPL (English, abbr. from second program loader) - operating system loader (analog Bios on PC). Through it happens firmware devices. SPL also checks compatibility firmware and devices by checking CID i.e. does not allow to install firmware not intended for a specific device ( unofficial firmware and firmware for other regions). SPL is also called bootloader om, although the English word bootloader can mean any bootloader.

SSD (English, abbr. from a solid state drive - solid-state drive) - non-volatile information storage device without moving mechanical parts. Considered as a replacement for hard drives on personal computers. It is necessary to distinguish solid-state drives based on the use of volatile (RAM SSD) and non-volatile (NAND or Flash SSD) memory. Subject on our forum SSD - flash-based drives .
Architecture and operation

These drives built on the use of energy-dependent memory (the same as used in the RAM of a personal computer) are characterized by ultrafast reading, recording and searching for information. Their main disadvantage is extremely high cost (from 80 to 800 US dollars per gigabyte). Used, mainly to accelerate the work of large database management systems and powerful graphics stations. Such drives are typically equipped with batteries to save data when the power loss, and more expensive models - backup and / or operational systems.

A peculiar kind of such drives is the RIndMA disk — a secondary PC connected to a fast RAM network connection with a software RAM drive. Such a computer is an order of magnitude cheaper than specialized solutions, but is not recommended for use in data-critical applications.


The drives built on the use of non-volatile memory (NAND SSD) appeared relatively recently, but due to much lower cost (from $ 2 [9] for gigabytes) began confident gains of the market. Until recently, it was significantly inferior to traditional drives in reading and writing, but they were compensated for this (especially when reading) a high speed of information search (comparable at the speed of RAM). Now the Flash solid-state drives are already available at the speed of reading and recording comparable to traditional, and models are developed significantly superior. Characterized by relatively small size and low power consumption. Already almost completely won the mid-level database accelerators and traditional discs in mobile applications are beginning to be crowned.

Touchscreen (English TouchScreen) - the screen of the device with touch control, the user interacts with the device by touching the screen. Onscreen sensors in mobile devices are of two types: resistive and capacitive. Resistive sensors allow you to enter with any object, as long as the upper sensor layer on the screen is closed with the lower one. The top layer must be flexible, therefore it is rather soft and scratch-prone, especially when using computer pen . Capacitive sensors have good sensitivity and responsiveness, but work only when you touch it with your finger (as well as other organic objects and special “big” styluses). They are located under the surface of the screen, so when using such sensors, it is possible to cover the device with glass or scratch-resistant plastic. Capacitive sensors are fundamentally less accurate than resistive.
