baud
baud aud (b[add]d or b[^o]d), n. [Named after J. M. E. Baudot, a French inventor, died 1903.] (Computers, telecommunications) A unit of transmission speed for information conveyed over a digital communications channel, usually taken as equal to the number of bits of information transmitted per second. The speed in bauds indicates the number of signalling events per second; however, since it is necessary in most cases to transmit control information along with the data, the {data signalling rate} may be smaller than the baud rate.
