Word:

Asynchronous

A`syn´chro`nous
a.1.Not simultaneous; not concurrent in time; - opposed to synchronous.
2.(Paleontology) occurring in different geologic times; - of taxa/
3.chronologically misplaced; belonging to a different time or era
4.(Computers) occurring at different speeds in different computers connected by a data transmission link; - said of methods data of transmission between computers. Opposite of synchronous.
Adj.1.asynchronous - (digital communication) pertaining to a transmission technique that does not require a common clock between the communicating devices; timing signals are derived from special characters in the data stream itself
Antonyms:
synchronous - (digital communication) pertaining to a transmission technique that requires a common clock signal (a timing reference) between the communicating devices in order to coordinate their transmissions
2.asynchronous - not synchronous; not occurring or existing at the same time or having the same period or phase
Antonyms:
synchronal, synchronic, synchronous - occurring or existing at the same time or having the same period or phase; "recovery was synchronous with therapy"- Jour.A.M.A.; "a synchronous set of clocks"; "the synchronous action of a bird's wings in flight"; "synchronous oscillations"
(architecture)asynchronous - Not synchronised by a shared signal such as clock or semaphore, proceeding independently.

Opposite: synchronous.

1. A process in a multitasking system whose execution can proceed independently, "in the background". Other processes may be started before the asynchronous process has finished.

2. A communications system in which data transmission may start at any time and is indicated by a start bit, e.g. EIA-232. A data byte (or other element defined by the protocol) ends with a stop bit. A continuous marking condition (identical to stop bits but not quantized in time), is then maintained until data resumes.
