Loop device In Linux, device names are encoded in the symbol table entries of their corresponding device drivers. The device is called "loop" device and device nodes are usually named "/dev/loop0", "/dev/loop1", etc. They can be created with makedev for the static device directory, dynamically by the facilities of the device filesystem (udev), or directly with mknod. The management user interface for the loop device is "losetup", which is part of the package util-linux.
Device Keys Each device is given its Device Keys and a 31-bit number d called the "device number".
Device Keys A device shall treat its Device Keys as highly confidential.
Loop device Sometimes, the loop device is erroneously referred to as loopback device, but this term is reserved for a networking device in operating systems. The concept of the "loop" device is distinct.
Device driver A device on the PCI bus or USB is identified by two IDs which consist of 4 hexadecimal numbers each. The vendor ID identifies the vendor of the device. The device ID identifies a specific device from that manufacturer/vendor.
Ballot marking device These terms are not, strictly speaking, synonyms. "Ballot marking device" defines a broad category, while "electronic ballot marker" excludes older mechanical devices, and "assistive voting device" only applies when the device serves as an assistive device.
Simple programmable logic device A simple programmable logic device (SPLD) is a programmable logic device with complexity below that of a complex programmable logic device (CPLD).
Device mapper Device mapper works by passing data from a virtual block device, which is provided by the device mapper itself, to another block device. Data can be also modified in transition, which is performed, for example, in the case of device mapper providing disk encryption or simulation of unreliable hardware behavior.
Device register A Device Register is the view any device presents to a programmer.
Color BASIC "device number" indicates a device. By default, device 0 (screen and keyboard) is assumed. In Color BASIC, device #-1 (cassette) and #-2 (printer) are available to the programmer.
Loop device A loop device may allow some kind of data elaboration during this redirection. For example, the device may be the unencrypted version of an encrypted file. In such a case, the file associated with a loop device may be another pseudo-device. This is mostly useful when this device contains an encrypted file system. If supported, the loop device is in this case the decrypted version of the original encrypted file and can therefore be mounted as if it were a normal filesystem.
Internet of People Assistance on device-to-device connections: Profile servers assist in acquiring a direct device-to-device connection once people find each other.
Belay device A similar device to the traditional tubular belay device which has two extra loops; normally situated on the front and back of the device. When the device is attached directly to an anchor point with the use of a second carabiner through the larger of the two loops it performs a similar stopping function to that created with the guide plate. The device is also able to be used as a standard tubular device when belaying from the harness.
Marksmanship Device The Expert Marksmanship device should not be confused with the Battle E Device. The Navy and Coast Guard Expert Marksmanship device is worn on the Marksmanship Ribbon in lieu of the full sized Marksmanship Medal. When wearing the Marksmanship Medal, the Marksmanship Ribbon with the Expert device is not worn. For a period of time, the "E Device" was bronze until three consecutive expert qualifications were achieved, then the device would change to silver with a permanent award status.
Serial Attached SCSI In addition, every SAS device has a SCSI device name, which identifies the SAS device uniquely in the world. One doesn't often see these device names because the port identifiers tend to identify the device sufficiently.
Unique Device Identification The Final Rule on Unique Device Identifiers also mandates medical device manufacturers to make a submission to the FDA's Global Unique Device Identification Database. The submission to the GUDID will include the Primary Device Identifier portion of the UDI as well as associated data attributes about each model or version number of the device.
"A" Device The "A" Device is only authorized for the currently in use Air Force Overseas Ribbon - Short Tour, and the American Defense Service Medal which is no longer in use. The two representations of the "A" device are different. The Arctic Device has serifs while the Atlantic Device ("Axis Device") does not have "feet" (sans-serif).
Limb lengthening methods D. Paley used simultaneously external device (Ilizarov device, one-sided "Orthofix" device), and intramedullary rod for hip lengthening.
Device ecology The word "ecology" refers to the relationship between an organism and its environment, which may include other organisms. A device ecology refers to a collection of devices with relationships among each other, that is, these devices can communicate with one another and are aware of each other's presence . Devices in a future living room, devices in a kitchen, or devices in a factory might collectively form device ecologies (a living room device ecology, a kitchen device ecology, etc.) to cooperatively perform tasks for a user. Imagine a user introducing a new device to the living room device ecology (i.e., bringing home a new device). Ideally, the user simply places the device in the living room, and there is an automatic "orientation" of the new device with subsequent integration into the living room device ecology.
Reverse leakage current Reverse leakage current in a semiconductor device is the current from that semiconductor device when the device is reverse biased.
