  1. Hi Guys, Tinkering with my FPGA code today, I ran into a question which I'd never really contemplated before. Say I have an unsigned FXP number with word length = 1 and integer word length = 2. Labview tells me that this gives a maximum of 2 with a delta of 2, so the number can either be 0 or 2. This makes no intuitive sense to me, the way I understood it, the word length is the total number of bits used to capture the number, the integer word length is the number of bits dedicated to capturing the integer portion, in other words, it kind of defines the "magnitude" of the number that can be captured, the remaining bits are used to give the "precision" to which the number is captured. So how is it even possible for the "integer word length" to be greater than the "word length"? Insight much appreciated. Cheers, Alex
