Binary Coded Decimal, more information ...

A way of representing decimal digits where 4 bits of 1 byte are a decimal digit, coded as the equivalent binary number.

Binary Coded Decimal Busdrop cable, plastic.

Binary Coded Decimal. The binary equivalent of the decimals 0 to 9 arranged in words of four bits.

Binary Coded Decimal is an encoding technique used to describe the numbers 0 through 9 with four digital (on or off) signal lines. Popular in machine tool equipment, BCD interfaces are now giving way to interfaces requiring fewer wires, such as RS-232C.

Binary Coded Decimal. Also called packed decimal, this is the representation of a number by using 0s and 1s, or four-bit binary numbers. So the number 29 would be encoded as 0010 1001.

Binary coded decimal. A numbering system often used in data processing where each decimal digit is represented by a four-bit binary value.

Binary-Coded Decimal. A binary-coded notation in which each of the decimal digits is represented by a binary numeral. This differs from the pure binary notation, where the entire number is represented as a single binary numeral.

Binary Code Decimal -A numbering system using base 2, that represents each decimal digit by four binary bits, with the weighting values equal to 8, 4, 2, and 1, reading from left to right.

Binary coded decimal. A numbering system that uses base 2 and represents each decimal digit with four binary digits. Reading from left to right, the weighting values are equal to 8, 4, 2, and 1.

Binary Coded Decimal. A coding system in which each decimal digit from 0 to 9 is represented by a 4-digit binary number.

Binary Coded Decimal. Four bit code representing the numbers zero through nine in binary. Shortcut for entering many binary numbers into a machine language program.

Binary Coded Decimal. The representation of a decimal number (base 10, 0 through 9) by means of a 4 bit binary nibble.

Binary Codec Decimal. (Decimal Codified in Binary)

binary coded decimal; a number system in which each group of 4 bits (referred to as decades) represents a single decimal digit.

A system of binary numbering where each decimal digit 0 through 9 is represented by a combination of four bits. BCD (Multiplexed): Data outputs from digital panel meters, formatted to be character-serial, bit-parallel, binary-coded decimal. Four lines are provided for the 8,4,2,1 BCD character in addition to a strobe line for each decade to identify each BCD character. BCD (Parallel): Character parallel binary-coded decimal is a widely used data format used to operate into data recorders, printers, computers, and programmable test instruments. It is generated by storing the multiplexed BCD in latch circuits so that the BCD characters for all of the decades are available in parallel.

binary coded decimal. Describing a decimal notation in which the individual decimal digits are represented by a group of binary bits, e.g., in the 8 4 2 1 coded decimal notation each decimal digit is represented by a group of four binary bits.

Binary Coded Decimal. A code format in which decimal digits (0-9) are expressed as four digit binary numbers.

Binary coded decimal. Binary code for decimal digits 0 to 9.

The acronym of Binary Coded Decimal, the representation of a decimal number in binary code form. In the simplest BCD code, four digits represent each figure.

inary- oded ecimal (a weighted code – 8421 BCD, that allows a binary encoding of decimal numbers that may be easily converted back to the original decimal value)

Acronym for Binary Coded Decimal. A numbering system in which each number is broken into a sequence of decimal digits. These decimal digits are then coded into binary, a task which requires four bits per digit, and stored in the resultant form. In the ATARI Computer, two such digits are stored in each 8-bit byte.

Binary-coded decimal; binary representation of a decimal number.

( binary-coded decimal) Pertains to a number system where each decimal digit is separately represented by a 4-bit binary code; for example, the decimal number 23 is represented as 0010 0011 (2 = 0010 and 3 = 0011, grouped together as shown), while in straight binary notation, 23 is represented as 10111.
