Asynchrony, in the general meaning, is the state of not being synchronized.

  • Asynchronous learning, a student-centered teaching method that uses online learning resources to facilitate information sharing outside the constraints of time and place among a network of people
  • Collaborative editing systems
  • Asynchronous circuit, is a sequential digital logic circuit which is not governed by a clock circuit or global clock signal
  • Asynchronous system, has no global clock: instead, it operates under distributed control, with concurrent hardware components communicating and synchronizing on channels
  • Asynchronous communication, transmission of data without the use of an external clock signal, where data can be transmitted intermittently rather than in a steady stream
  • Asynchronous serial communication, describes an asynchronous, serial transmission protocol in which a start signal is sent prior to each byte, character or code word and a stop signal is sent after each code word
  • Asynchronous cellular automaton, able to update individual cells independently, in such a way that the new state of a cell affects the calculation of states in neighbouring cells
  • Asynchronous Transfer Mode, according to the ATM Forum, "a telecommunications concept defined by ANSI and ITU (formerly CCITT) standards for carriage of a complete range of user traffic, including voice, data, and video signals," and is designed to unify telecommunication and computer networks
  • Asynchrony (computing)
  • Asynchronous motor, a variety of electric motor where the electromagnetic field turns with a different (higher) speed than the rotor; the difference is called slip
