In binary data, each unit of data is a bit. Each bit is represented by either 0 or 1, and is stored in memory as ON or OFF state.
Binary Digit. One digit of a binary number, either zero or one. Bits are the smallest components of bytes.
per second, as oposed to Bps (Bytes per seccond). broadband
denote units of data. One byte consists of eight bits ( each either a 1 or a 0 ). Bits are the measurement used for data transmission speeds, as in a 56 kilobit modem. Bytes are used when talking about memory and disk space as in megabytes and gigabytes

Building Integrated Timing System
The BITS is the master timing supply for an entire building, which is a master clock and its ancillary equipment. The BITS supplies DS1 and/or composite clock timing references for synchronization to all other clocks and timing sources in that building.
Building Integrated Timing Supply. A single building master timing supply that minimizes the number of synchronization links entering an office. Sometimes referred to as a Synchronization Supply Unit.
Building Integrated Timing Supply. A single building master timing supply that supplies DS1 and DS0 level timing throughout an office.
Usually denotes a drill bit
Small pieces of metal held in a chuck for the purpose of drilling holes (drill bits), cutting slots or shapes (router or milling bits) or driving fasteners (screwdriver bits) Drill bits are long and slender with sharp edges on one end used in portable drills or drill presses. Router bits are short and thick, with a reduced size stem to fit in the collet style chuck and sharp edges on the sides and/or bottom. Screwdriver bits are short slender rods usually with a hex shape at one end for fitting in a similarly shaped holder/handle or a chuck and a large variety of shapes at the other for fitting hex, Phillips, slotted, Allen, Torx, and many other shaped driving slots.
gathers of clear or color on a punty rod applied to the piece.
