Unit Definitions


A Kibibit (Kib or Kibit) is a binary unit of digital information that is equal to 1024 bits. It is defined by the International Electro technical Commission(IEC) and is used to measure the amount of digital data. The prefix 'kibi' is derived from the binary number system, it is used to distinguish it from the decimal-based 'kilobit' (Kb) and it is widely used in the field of computing as it more accurately represents the amount of data storage and data transfer in computer systems.
