​Data Transmission Technologies

Data transmission technologies allow users to transmit data from one point to other. Data transmission can be over short distances, for example, from a CPU to a monitor for displaying information. Data is also transmitted over long distances, for example, from a satellite back to Earth. For error-free transmission of data between the sender and receiver, three factors are to be considered: Direction of transmission, method of transmission and method of synchronization.

This GCSE Computer Science module introduces ​data ​transmission ​technologies to your students, explaining:

  • ​Classification of transmission
  • ​What is Universal Serial Bus
  • ​Different ​error-checking methods
