Term Definition
ECC
Error correcting code. Logic designed to detect and correct memory errors. ECC memory is commonly used for workstation and server grade computer systems. ECC memory modules typically utilize a 72-bit wide bus to the memory controller – 64-bits for data, and an extra 8-bits for error detection and correction.
Edge Connector
Metal tabs on the edge of a printed circuit board (PCB). The edge contacts are the interface between the PCB and the socket that allow the system to communicate with the memory module.

EDO
Extended data out. An asynchronous DRAM operating mode that improves access times compared to fast page mode (FPM) DRAMs.
EEPROM
Electrically erasable, programmable, read-only memory. EEPROMs differ from DRAMs in that the memory is saved even if electrical power is lost. Additionally, the memory can be erased and reprogrammed repeatedly
Electrostatic Discharge (ESD)
The dissipation of electricity. (In layman's terms, a "shock.") ESD can easily destroy semiconductor products, even when the discharge is to small to be felt.
Ethernet
A local area network allowing several computers to transfer data over a communications cable.
