Embedded System Glossary – V

Embedded System Terminology - V

Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI) - A reference to the number of electronic components in an IC. A VLSI chip is an IC containing 100,000–1,000,000 electronic components per chip.
Via - A copper trace that connects signals on two or more layers of a PCB.
Virtual Address - A memory location based upon a logical address that allows for the expansion of the physical memory space.
Void - Having no defined type
Volatile - A C keyword that should be used to warn your compiler (particularly the optimizer) about any pointers that point to registers with volatile values. Said of a value that can change without the intervention of software
Voltage controlled oscillator - An oscillator with an output frequency that is a function of an input voltage. Abbreviated VCO.
Voltage Divider - An electrical circuit made up of a few or more resistors that can decrease the input voltage of a signal.
Voltmeter - A measurement device that measures voltage.
VxWorks - A commercial real-time operating system from Wind River Systems.
