Tech Glossary

Short-range wireless interconnection of mobile phones, computers, and other electronic devices. Bluetooth allows us to send a photograph (or other piece of data) from one electronic device to another via Bluetooth.

A USB flash drive is a data storage device that includes flash memory with an integrated Universal Serial Bus (USB) interface. USB flash drives are typically removable and rewritable, and physically much smaller than an optical disc. USB flash drives are often used for the same purposes for which floppy disks or CDs were used, i.e., for storage, back-up and transfer of computer files. They are smaller, faster, have thousands of times more capacity, and are more durable and reliable because they have no moving parts. Additionally, they are immune to magnetic interference (unlike floppy disks), and unharmed by surface scratches (unlike CDs).

Grade A Memory
USB Flash Chips are divided into 4 different classes/ standards (A-D). At Technovation we only sell Grade A. These are bona fide premium chips; they are the most reliable and come with the manufacturers name and serial number imprinted on the chip. 

An ampere-hour or amp-hour is a unit of electric charge, with sub-units milliampere-hour (mA·h or mAh; often used in rechargeable and disposable battery specifications)

Near Field Communication (NFC) is a set of standards for smartphones and similar devices to establish radio communication with each other by touching them together or bringing them into proximity, usually no more than a few inches.

A Near Field Magnetic Induction communication system is a short-range wireless physical layer that communicates by coupling a tight, low-power, non-propagating magnetic field between devices. The concept is for a transmitter coil in one device to modulate a magnetic field which is measured by means of a receiver coil in another device. Near Field Magnetic Induction technology secures wireless communication between two accessories by creating a magnetic communication “bubble” around headsets, speaker-microphones and radios. This magnetic bubble has a radius of approximately 1.5 meters, is immune from radio frequency (RF) interference and virtually secure from eavesdropping. An eavesdropper would have to be standing next to the radio, within the magnetic bubble, to intercept wireless transmissions to and from a microphone or headset.

Solar power
Solar power is the conversion of sunlight into electricity, either directly using photovoltaics (PV), or indirectly using concentrated solar power (CSP).

A facility allowing computers, smartphones, or other devices to connect to the internet or communicate with one another wirelessly within a particular area.

Wearable Technology 
Wearable technology (also called wearable gadgets) is a category of technology devices that can be worn by a consumer and often include tracking information related to health and fitness. Other wearable tech gadgets include devices that have small motion sensors to take photos and sync with your mobile devices.
