what is parallel data transmission and how does it work. Data transmission is the process of sending data between the sender and sent to the recipient so that data can be processed further by the recipient. how does parallel data transmission work?
In data transmission is known by 2 basic models of serial data transmission and parallel data transmission
how parallel data transmission works?
In this article admin will focus on the transmission of parallel data only for the article serial data transmission please read the previous article what is serial data transmission and how does it work
Before discussing more about parallel transmission you should know in advance what is parallel data transmission and how does parallel data transmission work
what is parallel data transmission?
Parallel transmission is a transmission where a bunch of bits are sent simultaneously per unit of time
In parallel communication each bit has its own path. Like a car that drove the street, then each car has its own path so that the car can go at high speed
Because parallel communication uses its own path so if communication is done on long distance then it is quite expensive
Example to transmit data 8 bits then needed 8 pieces of path, not including clock line
That is why parallel data communications are used only at short distances only while for long distance communication used serial data communications
- difference between bits and bytes
- what is shift register and how does it work?
- what is encoder and how does it work?
how does parallel data transmission work?
because data on parallel transmissions are sent simultaneously then parallel transmission speed will be faster than serial data transmission
The following figure shows the working principle of parallel data transmission
A data transmission is said to be parallel if a group of data bits are transmitted together and pass through several separate transmission paths
In order for data between the sender and receiver to be received correctly then the required clock
Clock serves to coordinate or synchronize any actions or processes performed by senders or recipients of data
The higher the clock frequency then the data can be processed faster
An example of the use of parallel data communications is communication between computers and printers, communication between computers using parallel ports
