A flexible and efficient fixed to floating point conversion tool is presented for digital signal processing and communication systems. Fixed point numbers are heavily used in digital systems because they require less hardware, verification time and design effort compared to floating point number systems. However, floating point numbers offer better precision. Some digital designs may use a hybrid number system wherein fixed and floating point numbers can be used together to improve accuracy… CONTINUE READING
