Floating Point to Fixed Point Conversion of C Code

Abstract

In processors that do not support floating-point instructions, using fixed-point arithmetic instead of floating-point emulation trades off computation accuracy for execution speed. This trade-off is often profitable. In many cases, like embedded systems, low-cost and speed bounds make it the only acceptable option. We present an environment supporting fixed… (More)
