BERT (Bit Error Rate Test)

BERT is short for bit error rate test (or tester). It is a procedure or device that measures the bit error rate of a transmission to determine if errors are introduced into the system when data is transmitted.

May also be called BER testing.

  • Bit Map

    )A representation, consisting of rows and columns of dots, of a graphics image in computer memory. The value of each dot (whether it is filled in or not) is stored in one or more bits of data. For simple monochrome images, one bit is sufficient to represent each dot, but for colors and shades of […]

  • bit rate

    The ratio of the number of bits that are transferred between devices in a specified amount of time, typically one second. Bit rate is the same as data rate, data transfer rate and bit time.
