PADD is an acronym for Personal Access Display Device, a hand-held computer interface commonly used throughout the Federation and many other civilizations throughout the Milky Way Galaxy, for the easy access and sharing of data. (TOS novel: The Fearful Summons)

In 2376, the crew of the USS da Vinci discovered a program created by a Vorta named Luaran which, when downloaded to a PADD, created a "sonic bullet" capable of killing the user. (SCE eBook: Malefictorum)

A Starfleet PADD (2370s)
A Trill PADD (2370s)

A PADD, short for Personal Access Display Device, is a hand-held, multifunctional computer used in various guises by various races, including the Federation, Klingons, Romulans and Cardassians.

Earth Starfleet and later Federation Starfleet used PADDs starting around 2150 and continue to use them to this day for various functions. PADDs are wireless in nature and can access other PADDs, tricorders, communicators and ship's computers as needed.

The controls are touch-focussed and LCARS-based, allowing the user to intuitively access data via a large screen activated and operated by touch. PADDs in the 2360s utilized boronite whisker epoxy construction, powered by sarium krellide power cells. (Star Trek: The Next Generation Manual)

USS Cantabrian counselor Scott Fack preferred using PADDs to read novels instead of a book. (Star Trek: The Cantabrian Expeditions: "Isolation")
