Fixed-Point Conversion

Convert floating-point code to fixed-point code, optimize fixed-point data types

Converting algorithms that use floating-point operations to fixed-point operations can improve the power, cost, and performance of the generated code. Before generating HDL code, translate your floating-point MATLAB design to a fixed-point design. You can use automated tools to simplify and accelerate the conversion process. For more information on the automated fixed-point process, see Automated Fixed-Point Conversion. To get started with an example, see Floating-Point to Fixed-Point Conversion.
