single threading

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

A property of a body of code that activates more than one processor, but does so in such a way that at any one time no more than one processor is active. This results in what is termed serial programming. For example, code that initiates peripheral transfers may be so written that while a transfer is in progress the processor will not be active, and vice versa. See also multithreading, threading.
