    • 4D Programming Cable
      • A USB to Serial-TTL UART converter cable. The cable provides a fast and simple way to connect all of the 4D devices that require TTL level serial interface to USB.
    • 4D-UPA
      • A universal programmer designed to work with multiple 4D Systems display modules.

    • BACK CONTACT
      • A metallic layer that covers the entire back surface of a solar PV cell and acts as a conductor.
      • Also used to refer to advanced cell designs such as EWT where both terminals of the cell are located on the back side of the wafer, thus increasing the light-gathering area of the cell and hence improving conversion efficiency.
    • BACK GLASS
      • The bottom layer of a thin film solar module, which provides rigidity and electrical insulation. Current is extracted from the module through the junction box that is attached to the circuit through a hole in the back glass.
    • BACKPLANE
      • In TFT-LCD manufacturing, the backplane is the array of thin-film transistors that control the light output of each pixel on the display.
  • c

    • Comm Port
      • A serial communication port used to connect devices such as your display
  • d

    • Device Driver
      • A particular form of software application that is designed to enable interaction with hardware devices. Without the required device driver, the corresponding hardware device fails to work.
  • e

    • Embedded System
      • A programmed controlling and operating system with a dedicated function within a larger mechanical or electrical system, often with real-time computing constraints. It is embedded as part of a complete device often including hardware and mechanical parts.

    • Female Header
      • A connector attached to a wire, cable, or piece of hardware, having one or more recessed holes with electrical terminals inside.
    • Firmware
      • A specific class of computer software that provides the low-level control for the device's specific hardware.
  • g

    • GTX Tool
      • Genie Test Executor debugger. A tool used to check the data sent and received by the display.
    • GUI
      • A form of user interface that allows users to interact with electronic devices through graphical icons and visual indicators such as secondary notation, instead of text-based user interfaces, typed command labels or text navigation.

    • PmmC
      • The PmmC contains the low level micro-code information (analogy of that of a soft silicon) which define the characteristics and functionality of the PICASO processor. The chip-resident 4DGL functions are part of the PmmC configuration file and future proofing and enhancements are available via PmmC updates. The PmmC file is programmed into the module via the COM port.
    • Processor
      • A small chip that resides the 4D Systems displays. Its basic job is to receive input and provide the appropriate output.
    • Programming Adaptor
      • Used for programming 4D Systems display modules, interfacing to a breadboard for prototyping, interfacing to Arduino and Raspberry Pi interfaces.
