3. environment. The surroundings of, and influences on, a particular item of interest. Electronic environments can be defined as functional combinations of hardware and embedded software in the real world – that is, circuits, prototypes or products. In Technology, physical environment commonly refers to the location of the specific practice or the place where a final outcome will be located. In […]
