Unit Gibit
Name gibibit
Category Data
Details A Gibibit (Gibit) is a unit of digital information or data storage in the field of data and computing. It is based on the binary system (base-2), where data is represented using two symbols: 0 and 1.

A Gibibit is equivalent to 2^30 bits or 1,073,741,824 bits. It uses the "gibi" prefix, which originates from the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) to denote the power of the binary system. This is to avoid confusion with the standard metric (base-10) prefix "giga," which denotes 10^9 or 1,000,000,000.

Gibibit is often used to express the capacity of digital devices and storage media like RAM, solid-state drives, and files where data is mainly dealt with and stored in binary form. However, it's crucial not to confuse it with the commonly used gigabit (Gbit), which refers to 10^9 bits or 1,000,000,000 bits.
