Full Spike Protection Einige sensible Digitalkomponenten des Mainboards sind anfällig für Stromschwankungen, so dass überhöhte Spannungen zu Fehlfunktionen im System führen können. ASRocks sogenannte "Full Spike Protection" vereint verschiedene Technologien, die Schäden an Mainboardkomponenten durch unerwartete Spannungsschwankungen verhindern können. Surge Protection Schützt das Mainboard vor überhöhten Spannungen durch das Netzteil. Lightning Protection Der onboard verbaute Netzwerkcontroller ist gegen plötzliche und schädliche Spannungsspitzen infolge von Blitzeinschlägen geschützt. ESD Protection * USB: Zusätzliche ICs um die USB-Ports des Mainboards vor elektrostatischer Entladung zu schützen. * LAN: Verhindert Schäden am onboard verbauten Netzwerkchip in Folge von elektrostatischer Entladung. * MOSFETs: MOSFETs in kritischen Bereichen verfügen über ein spezielles Design zum Schutz vor elektrostatischer Entladung. Zuverlässige Kondensatoren für die CPU-Versorgung ASRock nutzt auf diesem Mainboard hochgradig zuverlässige Kondensatoren für die Stromversorgung der CPU. Das erhöht die Zuverlässigkeit des gesamten Boards und bietet eine ultrastabile Performance. Gigabit-LAN Dieses Mainboard von ASRock nutzt einen Gigabit-Netzwerkcontroller von Realtek für die Unterstützung extrem schneller Internetverbindungen. PCB mit hochverdichtetem Glasfasergewebe Was Sie bisher vielleicht nicht über ihren Computer wissen: Er hat Todesangst vor Wasser, H2O, Feuchtigkeit oder wie immer Sie es nennen wollen. Selbst wenn man das Wasser nicht sehen kann, kann immer eine hohe Luftfeuchtigkeit das Mainboard langsam aber unhörbar zerstören. Das Mainboard wird bei Kontakt mit Wasser zwar nicht wie die böse Hexe des Westens schmelzen, aber es stirbt an einem Kurzschluss. Glücklicherweise hat ASRock ein neues PCB-Design mit einem hochverdichtetem Glasfasergewebe, dass die Lücken im PCB verringert und das Mainboard auf diese Weise gegen einen durch Feuchtigkeit ausgelösten elektrischen Kurzschluss schützt. Umfangreiche Erweiterbarkeit Ein USB-3.0-Port mit 5,0 Gb/s unterstützt all Ihre Peripheriegeräte mit hohen Datenübertragungsraten. D-Sub, Parallel, COM, HDMI Komplett mit den vier meistgenutzten Anschlussarten!

Sie können so auf einfache Weise Ihr System optimieren und Ihr Mainboard auf dem neuesten Stand halten. Alles mit dem ASRock APP Shop. A-Tuning A-Tuning ist ASRocks Mehrzweck-Software mit einem neuen Interface, neuen Features und verbesserten Werkzegen. Darunter EZ OC, Auto Tuning, XFast LAN, XFast RAM, OC Tweaker, Live Update, Tech Service und vieles mehr! XFast LAN Wenn ihr Web-Browser Webseiten ohne ersichtlichen Grund nur sehr langsam lädt, ist das normalerweise auf eine ineffiziente Verwaltung der vorhandenen Netzwerkbandbreite zurückzuführen. ASRock führt nun erstmals effizientes Web-Management in die Motherboard-Branche ein. ASRock XFast LAN ist ein praktisches Tool, das Internet-Anwendungen einfach und effizient steuern kann. Um eine perfekten Internet-Umgebung herzurichten, benötigen Sie eben oft nur einen intelligenten Manager und nicht unbedingt mehr Bandbreite. Das ASRock XFast LAN bringt Ihnen mehr Geschwindigkeit, einfacheres Multitasking, ein verbessertes Multimedia-Erlebnis und vieles mehr. XFast RAM XFast RAM erstellt im Arbeitsspeicher eine virtuelle Festplatte, um die Leistung zu verbessern. Photoshop kann auf diese Weise beispielsweise bis zu fünf Mal so schnell arbeiten. USB-Schlüssel In einer Welt in der Zeit gleichbedeutend mit Geld ist, ist es Verschwendung, jeden Tag den Benutzernamen und das Passwort einzugeben, um sich in Windows® einzuloggen. Warum sollte man sich solch ellenlangen Passwörter überhaupt merken? Niemand hat Zeit für so etwas. Schließen Sie einfach Ihren USB-Schlüssel an und lassen Sie den PC sich automatisch in Windows® einloggen. Fast Boot Mit ASRocks exklusiver "Fast Boot"-Technologie benötigt ein Kaltstart nur 1,5 Sekunden, bis der Login von Windows® 8 erreicht wird. Kein warten mehr! Der superschnelle Boot-Vorgang wird Ihre Erfahrung und Ihr Handeln am PC vollständig verändern. Restart to UEFI Das Feature Fast Boot beschleunigt den Bootvorgang so sehr, dass es unmöglich ist das UEFI während des POST-Vorganges zu öffnen. Daher hat ASRock die Restart-to-UEFI-Funktion eingeführt, die den PC beim nächsten Neustart automatisch das UEFI starten lässt. Wer regelmäßig in das UEFI muss, findet hier die Lösung. HDMI Dieses Produkt unterstützt HDMI, womit nicht komprimierte Videodaten und Mehrkanalton über ein einziges Kabel übertragen werden können. Sowohl das Video-, als auch das Audio-Signal, die über die HDMI-Schnittstelle verschickt werden, liegen in einer digitalen Form vor und benötigt keine Analogumwandlung. So bietet die Technik die detaillierteste Bildqualität und den realistischsten Sound.

The power of a visual image is determined by a complex array of elements. Anyone who creates a page for a magazine, makes a PowerPoint presentation, designs a brochure, prepares a poster or dreams up an idea for an infographic is faced with some important questions: * Why is it better to put this photo here rather than there? * What background color should I use for my presentation? * What do I need to bear in mind when creating an internet page? * Is it better to use a table, a graph or an infographic for these numbers? * Do I need to ask permission to use this image for my weblog? These are the kinds of questions that Visual Language answers. The book is divided into four sections. The fi rst section introduces the subject. The second part explains three important theories relating to visual images: Gestalt, semiotics and visual rhetoric. Using these theories, in section three the authors explore the fundamental elements of visual language: composition, typography, perspective and color. The fourth and fi nal section presents applications from everyday practice: photos, graphs and tables, infographics, web pages and magazine pages. Visual Language is intended for anyone involved or is likely to become involved professionally with publishing images: from journalists, text and image editors and makers of infographics, advertisements, exhibitions and magazines to museum staff , communications advisors, photographers, illustrators, typographers and web designers. Because of the multidisciplinary approach adopted by the authors this book will be an invaluable tool for all readers, irrespective of their individual disciplines. Visual Language combines theory and practice, with assignments at the end of each chapter. This guide is an excellent reference work for both academic programs and vocational studies.

Learning UML 2.0

"Since its original introduction in 1997, the Unified Modeling Language has revolutionized software development. Every integrated software development environment in the world--open-source, standards-based, and proprietary--now supports UML and, more importantly, the model-driven approach to software development. This makes learning the newest UML standard, UML 2.0, critical for all software developers--and there isn't a better choice than this clear, step-by-step guide to learning the language." --Richard Mark Soley, Chairman and CEO, OMG If you're like most software developers, you're building systems that are increasingly complex. Whether you're creating a desktop application or an enterprise system, complexity is the big hairy monster you must manage. The Unified Modeling Language (UML) helps you manage this complexity. Whether you're looking to use UML as a blueprint language, a sketch tool, or as a programming language, this book will give you the need-to-know information on how to apply UML to your project. While there are plenty of books available that describe UML, Learning UML 2.0 will show you how to use it. Topics covered include: Capturing your system's requirements in your model to help you ensure that your designs meet your users' needs Modeling the parts of your system and their relationships Modeling how the parts of your system work together to meet your system's requirements Modeling how your system moves into the real world, capturing how your system will be deployed Engaging and accessible, this book shows you how to use UML to craft and communicate your project's design. Russ Miles and Kim Hamilton have written a pragmatic introduction to UML based on hard-earned practice, not theory. Regardless of the software process or methodology you use, this book is the one source you need to get up and running with UML 2.0. Russ Miles is a software engineer for General Dynamics UK, where he works with Java and Distributed Systems, although his passion at the moment is Aspect Orientation and, in particular, AspectJ. Kim Hamilton is a senior software engineer at Northrop Grumman, where she's designed and implemented a variety of systems including web applications and distributed systems, with frequent detours into algorithms development.
