What does ZCD mean?

A zero crossing detector is used for detecting the zero crossings of AC signals. A typical AC signal is the sine wave which goes up and down the zero level. Many electronic systems need to know 'when' the signal crossed the zero level. The answer to that problem is the zero crossing detector.
