TU (Time Unit)

A time unit (TU) is a unit of time equal to 1024 microseconds. It was originally introduced in the meanwhile obsolete IEEE 802.11-1999 standard but continues to be used also in newer issues of the IEEE 802.11 standard.

A whole number of such units are used to describe several intervals in that standard. The use of the term is to avoid using the term "millisecond", which is slightly different. The unit allows for maintaining intervals that are easy to implement in hardware that has a 1 MHz clock (by dividing the clock signal in half ten times, rather than operating a phase-locked loop or digital divider to divide such a clock signal by 1000).

Tu (cuneiform)

The cuneiform sign tu, and for TU-(the sumerogram, capital letter ( majuscule), in the Hittite language and other cuneiform texts, is a common-use syllabic sign for "tu", and also with a syllabic use for "t", or "u". It is not a multi-use sign, with other alphabetic sub-varieties.

The Sumerian language version is similar to the usage in the Amarna letters, with the 3-horizontal strokes connecting the 4-angled wedges on the left, and connected to the vertical horizontal single-stroke, at right. Varieties exist: for example Amarna letter EA 271 shows 4-hortizontal long-strokes, with 2 short-strokes, between the two long ones, (see here, 2nd line from bottom (tablet Obverse): 1.

The Hittite language version of tu, (and ideogram TU) is identical in common form to the Sumerian.

The composition of the sign is effectively the 4-wedge strokes at left, (being še (cuneiform)) connected to the rest of the cuneiform sign. Cuneiform še is also a common-use syllabic sign, with few subvarieties. (Two example angled-wedges: ).
