1] The number of bits that the modem uses to represent one byte. This is usually 8, though it can be 7, since ASCII text characters need only 7 of the 8 bits.  The actual data bits within a byte being sent through the phone lines.
The bits sent by a modem. These bits make up characters and don't include the bits that make up the communications parameters. See also bit
The form in which the computer sends and receives information as a string of bits.
In data transmission, the seven or eight contiguous bits that actually represent the code for a character. Contrast with the nondata bits (start bit, parity bit, stop bits) that are used to separate characters or verify their correct transmission.
Refers to the number of bits used to define a character on serial data transmission, usually 7 or 8. When connecting two computers together via the communication ports, it is important to set the same number at each end.
The number of bits needed to transmit a single piece of information. This number is usually around 7 or 8.
The number of bits that are used to define one character of information during telecommunications.
The number of bits, usually seven or eight, needed to make up one character of information.
A group of bits (1's and 0's) that represent a single character or byte. Typically, there are seven or eight data bits. During an asynchronous communication (e.g., BitCom connecting to CompuServe), each side must agree on the number of data bits. Data bits are preceded by a start bit and followed by an optional parity bit and one or more stop bits.
The number of bits that form a character.
The number of bits used for data. Generally set at seven or eight. Used in communication protocol. Set according to the host configuration.
In asynchronous transmissions, the bits that actually comprise the data; usually seven or eight data bits make up the data word. ... more
