baud

 (bôd)
n.
A unit of data transfer speed equal to one change in a carrier signal per second. Since most data transmission schemes transfer more than one bit of data with each change in the carrier signal, one baud is usually equal to several bits per second.

[After Jean Maurice Emile Baudot (1845-1903), French engineer.]
