What is EBCDIC?

EBCDIC stands for Extended Binary Coded Decimal Interchange Code.

It is an 8-bit binary code for numeric and alphanumeric characters. It is a coding illustration in which numbers, symbols, and letters and are presented in binary language. It was developed and used by IBM.

On the other hand, ASCII is the American Standard Code for Information Interchange. It is used to represent the text in several types of devices such as computers and telecommunication.
