The highest order bit in the binary representation of a numerical value.

The bit farthest to the left in a binary number. It represents 2( n-1), where n is the number of bits in the number.

most significant bit. Bit in a binary word that can represent the largest value. The MSB is the leftmost bit in a big-endian-ordered binary word. See also binary word, bit, least significant bit

Most Significant Bit: the leftmost bit, bit N-1 in an N-bit binary representation, with weight 2 to the (N-1)th power

See Most Significant Bit or Most Significant Byte.

MSB may stand for most-significant bit or most-significant byte. The most-significant bit is the binary digit (bit) in a binary number that represents the most significant value (typically the left-hand bit). Similarly, the most-significant byte is the byte in a multi-byte word that represents the most significant values (typically the left-hand byte).

Most Significant Bit. The first bit in a binary number. In 16-bit digital-audio playback systems, it contributes 32,000 times more to the output signal than the 16th (least significant) bit. Thus, errors in MSB circuitry occurring at very low levels can cause audible distortion and nonlinearities.

Most Significant Bit. In a binary number, the MSB is the most weighted bit in the group. Typically, the LSB is the furthest left bit.

In a system in which a numerical magnitude is represented by a series of digits, the most significant bit (binary digit) is the digit that carries the greatest value or weight.

Most Significant Byte of a multi-byte value.

Most Significant Bit. In a binary number, the MSB is the most weighted bit in the number. Typically, the MSB is the left-most bit.

The bit in a binary value that carries the most weight, for a byte, this is bit 7, weight 128.

Most Significant Bit. Leftmost binary bit (largest weight) of a binary expressed quantity.

Most significant bit; the leftmost bit in a byte.

Most significant bit or most significant byte. The portion of a number, address, or field that is farthest left when written as a single number in conventional hexadecimal ordinary notation. The part of the number having the most value.

( most significant bit) The bit within a digital word that represents the biggest possible single-bit coded value.
