In computer architecture, 16-bit integers, memory addresses, or other data units are those that are at most 16 bits wide. Also, 16-bit CPU and ALU architectures are those that are based on registers, address buses, or data buses of that size. 16-bit is also a term given to a generation of microcomputers in which 16-bit microprocessors were the norm. A 16-bit register can store 2¹⁶ different values. The signed range of integer values that can be stored in 16 bits is -32,768 through 32,767. Hence, a processor with 16-bit memory addresses can directly access 64 KiB of byte-addressable memory.
