Data conversion 
Posted: Wed Feb 05, 2003 1:38 am 


Hello to everyone I need some help here.
I've got a 2 byte data in this form:
bit15: Sign
bit14: 2^6
bit13: 2^5
bit12: 2^4
bit11: 2^3
bit10: 2^2
bit09: 2^1
bit08: 2^0
bit07: 2^1
bit06: 2^2
bit05: 2^3
bit04: 2^4
bit03: 0
bit02: 0
bit01: 0
bit00: 0
I want to convert a 2 byte data in this form to a float point data and save it in a variable. I need a calculation, if you want to know, this is related to the digital sensor DS1631.
Help me help me
thank you

This is just an integer, scaled /256.
Assuming your two bytes are held in a variable declared as a signed integer  if not, use a union, and have a signed int16 as one of the methods of accessing the data like :
union data {
int8 b[2];
signed int16 w;
} value;
Then you can access the individual characters as:
value.b[0], and value.b[1], and the whole 16bit word as value.w
Then just code as:
result=(float)value.w/256.0;
This 'casts' the integer into a float, and then divides this by 256 to give the correct result. However note that I am _forcing_ the operation to be done on a float, by using a float constant, and doing the conversion before the arithmetic (CCS C, has a tendency to try to save time, by converting latter...).
Best Wishes

Glad to help.
You phrased your question clearly, and by thanking well, have made it a pleasure to help you.
Good luck on the rest of the project.
