In the following paper, we explore a few issues associated with integer and fixed point computation on microprocessors. We do not discuss floating point computation since floating point operations are rarely resorted to in interfacing in the context of 8-bit microprocessors.

Chapter Contents:

  • C.3 Fixed point arithmetic

Inspec keywords: microprocessor chips; fixed point arithmetic

Other keywords: integer computation; 8-bit microprocessors; microprocessors; fixed point computation

Subjects: Digital arithmetic methods; Digital electronics; Microprocessor chips; Microprocessors and microcomputers
