Owning Palette: Numeric Functions.

Requires: FPGA IP Builder. This topic might not match its corresponding palette in LabVIEW depending on your operating system, licensed product(s), and target.

Use the Fixed-Point functions to manipulate the overflow status and shift the bit pattern of a fixed-point number.

Note  This palette is specific to the FPGA IP Builder and contains a subset of the VIs and functions that are on this palette when you edit a host VI.
Palette Object Description
Fixed-Point to Integer Cast Scales the fixed-point input to produce an integer output. This function is the equivalent of an arithmetic shift of the input, constrained so that the least significant bit of the input becomes the least significant bit of the output.
Integer to Fixed-Point Cast Scales the integer input to produce an output with the requested fixed-point type. This function is the equivalent of an arithmetic shift of the input with configurable overflow handling, constrained so that the least significant bit of the input becomes the least significant bit of the output.
