binary system

  

Definition

Number system that uses only two values (0,1; on, off) to represent codes and data. Since zeros and ones can be easily represented by two voltages, the binary system is the foundation on which digital technology is built. Every digital computer whether a pocket calculator or a mainframe uses the same binary notation.
