In computers everything is represented in terms of bits in terms of 1's or 0's. A bit represents a single 1 or 0.

A nibble consists of 4 bits or it constitutes to a hexadecimal unit.

A byte consists of 8 bits which is also called an octet. Nibble can be also termed as half byte or semioctet.

"11110000" this can be said as a byte and half of this is nibble that is "1111".

nibble means 4bits
in computers all the memory is stored in terms of bits(1,0)
and 4 bits are called one nibble

1 byte devided by 2 is equal to 1 nibble.
1 byte = 8 bit so 1 nibble = 4 bit
ex:1001

computer can only understand binary language that is 0 and 1.
in computer these digits are called 1 bit more specifically.
when computer get either 0 or 1 it means it is 1 bit. therefore groups of 4 bits are called 1 nibble.

Computer Understands Binary Digits (Bits 0 & 1) only.
Four Bits constitute 1 Nibble
Eight Bits constitute a Byte

hi this is jayaram,
*Machine understands only the language which consists of 0's and 1's .
*Then they call each 0 and 1 as bit.
*They call the series of 4 (combinations of 4 bits i,e. 0000,0001,0010,0011,0100,0101,0110,0111,1000,1001,1010,1011,1100,1101,1110,1111)bits as 1 Nibble and 8 bits as 1 byte.sometimes they call 1 byte and 1 nibble as word.

*this gives the clear idea of NIBBLE.

Nibble is a unit of computer system.
It is a bunch of 4 bits like 1001,1101,0101......so it is a half of byte.
Mostly we don't use it but we'll use it in IPv6.

NIBBLES:combinations of 4 bit is called nibble.... bits are nothing but 0's and 1's.... 4 bits possibilities are 1111,1110,0000,0001,0010,1100,1000,0100,..)
