bit pattern

[′bit ‚pad·ərn]
(computer science)
A combination of binary digits arranged in a sequence.

bit pattern

(data)
A sequence of bits, in a memory, a communications channel or some other device. The term is used to contrast this with some higher level interpretation of the bits such as an integer or an image. A bit string is similar but suggests an arbitrary, as opposed to predetermined, length.

bit pattern

A specific layout of binary digits. See bitmap.
