Enter the bit rate and the number of bits per baud into the calculator to determine the baud rate.

## Baud Rate Formula

The following formula is used to calculate a baud rate.

BR = BIR / BPB

- Where BR is the baud rate (bauds/s)
- BIR is the bit rate (bits/s)
- BPB is the number of bits per baud

## Baud Rate Definition

A baud rate is defined as the ratio of the bit rate to the number of bits per baud.

## Baud Rate Example

How to calculate baud rate?

**First, determine the bit rate.**Measure the rate of the data transfer in bits per second.

**Next, determine the BPB.**Calculate the total number of bits per baud.

**Next, calculate the the baud rate.**Using the formula above, calculate the baud rate. For example, if the bit rate was 1600, and the bits per baud was 8, the baud rate would be 1600/8= 200 bauds per second.

## FAQ

**What is a baud rate?**

A baud rate is a unit of measure used in telecommunication and electronics to describe the speed or rate of communication of a data channel. In other words, how quickly the data is transferred through a channel.
