baud rate - [data transfer] In communications, the number of electrical cycles, or signals, transmitted per second. At lower transfer speeds the baud rate equals the data transfer rate measured in bps, or bits per second. Baud rate and bps are still sometimes used interchangeably, though inaccurately, since current standards allow for the encoding of multiple bits into a single cycle.
