### General description

Bitwise modulo 2. Set the output as a result of XOR operation , applied to each pair of bits that are in the same positions in the binary representation of the input values.

In other words, the resulting bit is equal to:

• “1” if only one bit of a pair of input values are equal to “1”;
• “0” if both bits of a pair are equal to “0”, or both bits of a pair are equal to “1” For example:
Value X =   27  =   0x001B  =   0b0000000000011011
Value Y =   58  =   0x003A  =   0b0000000000111010
Result  =   33  =   0x0021  =   0b0000000000100001

### Features

The result of ‘Bitwise XOR’ number with itself is always zero.

The result of ‘Bitwise XOR’ on any X with the same Y value twice is always equal to initial X value .
