English term or phrase: Speck nodes
Hallo,
ich bräuchte Hilfe zu u.a. Begriffen.

Vielen Dank im voraus!
------------------------------------------
1) speck nodes

bzw.

"specks"

2) "speckled computing"
-----------------------------------
Kontext: Asynchrone Netzwerke
-----------------------------------
Beispielsätze:
The tiny self-powered nodes, or "specks" could be sprayed into a car, or onto cloth, for example, and you'd have diagnostics capability........
Speck nodes might be purchased at the corner shop by weight, said Dk, director of the Institute
for Computing Systems Architecture. Two projects to demonstrate "speckled computing" are in work....

Explanation:
Speckeled computing is one of thoes 'visionary' things halfway between todays reality and futuristic stuff like nanocomputing. They are supposed to be tiny selfcontained and wirelessly comunicating computers that you sprinkle throughout your product. There is no german term for that yet, as the technology does not now and might never actually exist. If you wanted to translate the term you could come up with something like "versprenkelt" oder "durchsprenkelt" to describe this approach. I would however include the original term in brackets the first time you use it. Leaving it as it is in egnlish might also work.
