Synchronous Bus - a bus that has clocked address, data, and control cycles.
Syndrome - the encoded bits in an error detection and correction scheme which indicate SBE or MBE and contain the code for correction of SBEs.
System Lifecycle - the process of turning an embedded system concept into a working maintained system. The steps potentially include: concept, requirements, high-level design, detailed design, implementation of units and subsystems, unit/subsystem test, integration, system test, acceptance testing, fielding, maintenance, and unit/system regression testing.
System Test - end-to-end and feature tests performed after the units and subsystems in a larger system have been unit tested and are integrated for the first time.
T (in RMA) - the period of a service request type. In many cases this will be based upon the worst case frequency of the event(s) that cause a service to be released.
Target - the embedded computing system including the processor complex and all I/O devices.
Target Agent - an embedded service which provides development, debug, and performance analysis features such as cross debugging, code loading and linking, and RTOS event traces.
