A terminator is a resistor connected to a signal wire in a bus or network for the purpose of impedance matching to prevent signal reflections.

Examples[]

Examples include a 50-ohm resistor connected across the end of an Ethernet cable. SCSI device chains and some LocalTalk wiring schemes also require terminators.[1]
