Hi firends, my name is hari. I would like to answer to this question. At first i think the question which u had posted as DMA is wrong and i think it is DNA that is Distributed intrNet Architecture. It was an revolutionary concept that was developed by microsoft for delivering the n-tier architecture. Later it was suffered from backward compatiablitiy issues and then it gave birth to the .net technology which incorporatates the safer exection of code through CLR. DNA is also suffered with SIDE-BY-SIDE execution and improting and plumbing of code while executing the application into our server in asp3.0 but in .net it was completely revelaed and the problem was diagnoised. DMA makes and support the two tier and three tier to n-tier architecutre application in which it can be able to communicate and transfer the data as much as it can but pratically it was very difficult with "Windows DNA".

I think this is about hardware architecture, so DMA stands for Direct Memory Access -- transferring the content of the memory to a I/O device (or back) without using the processor. 
Sending network packets, palying music etc

DMA(direct memory acesses) it is used to transfer the data from the memory to i/o devices or vice versa without the intervention of processor.
