Unit MiB
Name mebibyte
Category Data
Details A mebibyte (MiB) is a unit of digital information or data storage used in the field of computing and data communications. It is equivalent to 2^20 or 1,048,576 bytes. The unit's name is derived from the words "mega" and "binary," and was introduced by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) in 1998 to distinguish it from the megabyte (MB), which is a base-10 unit equivalent to 1,000,000 bytes.

Mebibyte is a binary multiple of bytes and is used to denote storage capacities, memory sizes, file sizes, and other related metrics in the field of data. By deļ¬ning binary-based units like mebibytes, the IEC eliminated confusion between the different data storage measurements that used to occur when both base-10 and base-2 systems shared the same unit names (e.g., kilobyte, megabyte, and gigabyte).
