  • SACD : Super Audio CD
  • sandbox : a sandbox is a security mechanism for separating running programs.
  • SCLK : Serial Clock Input, as used for e.g. Serial Flash / SPI bus
  • SCSI : SCSI, Small Computer System Interface
  • SDK : Software development kit, a set of software development tools
  • SDP : Service discovery Protocols are network protocols used to allow devices to discover what services (and theirs characteristics) each other support.
  • SEN : Sony Entertainment Network
  • server : any combination of hardware or software designed to provide services to clients. When used alone, the term typically refers to a computer which may be running a server operating system, but is also used to refer to any software or dedicated hardware capable of providing services
  • SI : Serial Data Input, datasignal used for e.g. Serial Flash / SPI bus
  • side channel attack : a side channel attack is any (passive) attack based on information gained from the physical implementation of a cryptosystem, rather than brute force or theoretical weaknesses in the algorithms
  • SIMD : Streaming SIMD Extensions
  • SIO : Serial Data Input & Output, datasignal used for e.g. Serial Flash / SPI bus
  • SKU : Stock Keeping Unit, an alphanumerical identifier of each seperate model
  • SMD : Surface-Mount Technology is a method for producing electronic circuits in which the components are mounted or placed directly onto the surface of printed circuit boards (PCBs). An electronic device so made is called a surface-mount device (SMD).
  • SMR : Shingled Magnetic Recording writes new tracks that overlap part of the previously written magnetic track, similar to roof shingles. Introduced since 5TB and 10TB harddrives.
  • SMT : Surface-Mount Technology is a method for producing electronic circuits in which the components are mounted or placed directly onto the surface of printed circuit boards (PCBs). An electronic device so made is called a surface-mount device (SMD).
  • SO : Serial Data Output, datasignal used for e.g. Serial Flash / SPI bus
  • SOE : Sony Online Entertainment, see also player-studio.soe
  • software : a general term primarily used for digitally stored data such as computer programs and other kinds of information read and written by computers. Today, this includes data that has not traditionally been associated with computers, such as film, tapes and records
  • Solid-state drive : A solid-state drive (SSD), sometimes called a solid-state disk or electronic disk, is a data storage device that uses integrated circuit assemblies as memory to store data persistently.
  • SOT : Small Outline Transistor is a small footprint, discrete surface mount transistor commonly used in consumer electronics.
  • SPI bus : Serial Peripheral Interface Bus, a synchronous serial data link standard that operates in full duplex mode
  • SR : Speech recognition
  • SRESET : Soft Reset, without erasing
  • SSE-SSE4 : Streaming SIMD Extensions-SSE4
  • state machine : a state machine, is a mathematical model of computation used to design both computer programs and sequential logic circuits. It is conceived as an abstract machine that can be in one of a finite number of states.
  • Static random-access memory : Static random-access memory (SRAM) is a type of semiconductor memory where the word static indicates that, unlike dynamic RAM (DRAM), it does not need to be periodically refreshed.
  • SWER : Single Word Error Rate is a measure to evaluate accuracy for the performance of speech recognition.
  • Synchronous dynamic random-access memory : Synchronous dynamic random access memory (SDRAM) is dynamic random access memory (DRAM) that is synchronized with the system bus.
