converter

  1. A converter is a device for converting signals from one format to another so that they can be further processed. In addition to format converters, there are various other converters. For example, converters can work as media converters and carry out the transition from one transmission medium to another or transfer light from one wavelength to another, adjust voltages or convert one frequency to another as frequency converters.
  2. In computers, converters perform programmatic functions by converting data and file formats so that data from one system is adapted to the specific characteristics when it is transferred to another. Converters are also used for the transition of a computer to a virtual computer or between different virtual computers.
  3. In communications engineering, it is a matter of code conversion and protocol conversion. Since networks communicating with each other generally use different codes and protocols, they must be converted to the other code or protocol.
