Baud Rate

Posted on December 4, 2012 by KVMG-CMS   |  0 comments

The number of symbol changes (signaling events) made to the transmission medium per second using a digitally modulated signal. Used to refer to the number of bits per second when only one bit is sent per clock cycle. 300 baud = 300 bits per second (bps). Today, most transmission systems are capable of sending more than one bit per clock cycle, so the term bps (bits per second) is used instead.
