K

k

See kilo.

Ka-band

Radio spectrum in the 18 GHz to 31 GHz range used by satellite communications systems.

Kilo

A prefix, abbreviated "k," used to denote units of thousands. One "Kilo" is one thousand. A frequency of one kilohertz is a frequency of one thousand hertz (cycles per second). A unit of frequency denoting one thousand (103) Hz.

Kilobyte (kB)

As a measure of computer memory or storage, a kilobyte (KB or Kbyte) is approximately a thousand bytes (actually, 2 to the 10th power, or decimal 1,024 bytes).

KiloHertz (kHz)

Used to describe the frequency of a crystal or oscillator in terms of thousands of Hertz (cycles per second). A frequency specified as "10.0 kHz" would be understood as being a frequency of 10,000 Hertz (cycles per second). A frequency specified as "10,000 kHz" would be understood as being a frequency of 10,000,000 Hertz (cycles per second).
