packet assembler/disassembler

packet assembler/disassembler
   Abbreviated PAD. A device that is connected to a packet-switched network and that converts a serial data stream from a characteroriented device, such as a bridge or a router, into packets suitable for transmission. It also disassembles packets back into characters for transmission to the character device. PADs are often used to connect a terminal or computer to an X.25 packetswitched network.
