Fractional Binary Fixed-Point Numbers
In ``DSP chips'' (microprocessors explicitly designed for digital signal processing applications), the most commonly used fixed-point format is fractional fixed point, also in two's complement.
Quite simply, fractional fixed-point numbers are obtained from integer fixed-point numbers by dividing them by . Thus, the only difference is a scaling of the assigned numbers. In the case, we have the correspondences shown in Table G.5.
