Thread: Microship 24bit Floating point format question
face BY : Thomas Robert de Massy email (remove spam text)

   I'm converting some numbers to Microship's 32 & 24bits floating point
format (Microship application notes AN575 IEEE 754 compliant floating point
routines) but I have problems converting the zero number, I know it should
be a denormalized number but I'm not able to find the correct answer.

converting 1 to 24bits I get :
e = 0
eb = 7F
f = 0000
1 = 7F0000

and converting 0
e = 0
eb = 7f
f = 0000
0 = 7f0000

what's the correct answer ? can you explain ?
thanks in advance
