synchronous
Last modified: Sunday, September 01, 1996 

asynchronous vs. synchronous communications
Occurring at regular intervals. The opposite of synchronous is asynchronous. Most communication between computers and devices is asynchronous -- it can occur at any time and at irregular intervals. Communication within a computer, however, is usually synchronous and is governed by the microprocessor clock. Signals along the bus, for example, can occur only at specific points in the clock cycle.
