Definition for vectoring


What is vectoring in electronics?
Read the following to find out:


is the technique of passing control in a computer program through an intermediate address or vector. For example on detecting an interrupt instead of the computer passing control directly to a service routine it may first jump to a location which in turn hands control to the routine. By altering the contents of this intermediate location alternative service routines may be introduced without affecting programs that have already been written for that system.
