Bit is an abbreviation of binary digit, the fundamental building block of digital computer systems. A bit can either be a '1' or a '0'. Several bits, usually in groups of 8, make up binary numbers, which may represent an alphanumerical character, a value, a program instruction or other information. The memory capacity of a smart card is usually quoted in bits.
