least significant bit - Computer Definition
In a binary number or bit sequence comprising one or more bytes, the loworder (i.e., least) bit in the sequence.The LSB conveys the least amount of information, and usually is the right-most bit.The approach is known as big-endian. In some data representation schemes, the LSB is the left-most bit.This approach is known as little-endian. See also big-endian, bit, bit robbing, byte, endianess, and little-endian.
