Bytes (B) to Bits (b) calculator

Input the amount of bytes you want to convert to bits in the below input field, and then click in the "Convert" button. But if you want to convert from bits to bytes, please checkout this tool.


Formula used to convert B to b:

F(x) = x * 8

For example, if you want to convert 15 B to b, just replace x by 15 [B]:

15 B = 15*8 = 120 b


  1. Multiply the amount of bytes by 8.
  2. The result will be expressed in bits.

About Bytes (B)

A byte is a unit of digital information that represents eight (8) bits. It is widely used in computing and in digital communications. The symbol used to represent a byte is B (upper-case letter B). It was designated by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).

The amount of bits that a byte represent changed over the years, but nowadays a byte represents 8 bits. With 1 byte you can represent numbers from 0 to 255.

About Bits (b)

A bit is the basic unit of measurement used in computing (for example, in data storage), digital communications (for example, express the amount of information sent) and information theory. The name bit is a portmanteau of binary digit. The symbol used to represent a bit is b.

As a binary digit, the bit represents a logical value (having only one of two values). It may be physically implemented as a two-state machine. It can be represented as either 0 or 1, true or false, + or -, yes or no, on or of, etc.
