A CDE Definition
See asynchronous transmission.
The transmission of data in which each character is a self-contained unit with its own start and stop bits. Intervals between characters may be uneven. It is the common method of transmission between a computer and an analog modem, although the modem may switch to synchronous transmission to communicate with the other modem. Also called "start/stop transmission." Contrast with synchronous transmission.
