Definition - What does Decoupled Architecture mean?
Decoupled architecture is a type of computing architecture that enables computing components or layers to execute independently while still interfacing with each other. Decoupled architecture separates a system’s memory access and instruction cycle processes from execution-stage processes by implementing a data buffer.
