To conserve FPGA resources and reduce power consumption, convert the floating-point data types in your design to fixed-point for use on an FPGA.
Quickly convert your floating-point designs to fixed-point to save resources on an FPGA and optimize the performance of your application. The fixed-point data type allows you to specify the exact size and precision of numbers so that an FPGA can use the numbers more efficiently. An interactive conversion tool evaluates your code and provides fixed-point data type suggestions depending on your configuration.
Converting your floating-point design to fixed-point consists of the following phases:
