SG Bits/Bytes Conversion Calculator
About the Bits/Bytes Calculator
Notes: Keep in mind in data communication 1 kilobit = 1000 bits, while in data storage 1 Kilobyte = 1024 Bytes.
This conversion calculator rounds all values to 9 significant digits.
Because of computer architecture and memory address boundaries, bytes are usually some multiple or exponent of two.
However, the terms Bytes, Megabytes and Gigabytes are often used ambiguously. Whether values are calculated using the decimal or binary systems depends on the context.
For example, most hard disk drive and flash-memory manufacturers define 1 gigabyte as a million bytes (decimal gigabyte, 109),
while computer operating systems usually calculate drive/file/RAM size in binary gigabytes (230).
