Definition: zero-wait-state computer

  

Archived Historical Data: Not Actively Maintained.

A computer that can process information without processor wait states, which are clock cycles during which no instructions are executed because the processor is waiting for data from a device or from memory. Static RAM chips and paged-mode RAM chips are becoming popular because they can store information without being constantly refreshed by the processor, thus eliminating the wait state.
