FixedPoints
A portable fixed point arithmetic library.
Some knowledge of how fixed point types are formatted is required to used this library to full effect. No knowledge of how these operations are implemented is required to use them.
This library was written with Arduino in mind, as well as CPUs with limited floating point support. However, given the templated nature of the library, it should still function on a wide variety of CPUs.
Project Showcase
Here's a list of projects that use FixedPoints
:
 1943 for the Arduboy by @filmote
 XOD Powered Rechargeable Solar Lamp by Victorian DeLorean
 Pod Manager for the Arduboy by @felipemanga
If you have a project that uses FixedPoints
and would like your work to be showcased here,
please raise an issue.
Requirements:
 The Compiler must be C++11 compliant.
 The user should ideally be familar with the Q number format for fixed points.

Conditional Compilation
These are symbols you can define prior to library inclusion to alter the behaviour of the library.
FIXED_POINTS_USE_NAMESPACE
: Define this to wrap all classes and functions in the namespaceFixedPoints
. Useful for preventing naming conflicts.FIXED_POINTS_NO_RANDOM
: Define this to disable the random utility functions. Useful for systems that don't have access tolong random(void)
from avrlibc.
FAQ
 Why can't I multiply
UQ32x32
orSQ31x32
by another type? Because it would require a 128bit integer type to provide enough precision for accurate multiplication.
Contents
This library supplies two core types and sixteen type aliases.

Core Types:
The core types are provided by FixedPoints.h

UFixed<I, F>

Construction:
Note that both UFixed<I, F>
and SFixed<I, F>
are implicitly compiletime constructable from all integer and decimal literals.
This means that you may write code such as UFixed<8, 8> value = 0.5;
without incurring a runtime cost for converting from double
to UFixed<8, 8>
because the constructor is constexpr
.
UFixed<I, F>
is constructable from:
 Any integer literal type, regardless of sign.  This constructs the fixed point as an integer with no fractional part.  A value that does not fit shall be truncated without warning.  If a constant value is used, the fixed point shall be constructed at compile time.
 An unsigned integer part and an unsigned fractional part.
 The integer part is of the smallest type capable of representing
I
bits.  The fractional part is of the smallest type capable of representingF
bits.  If constant values are used, the fixed point shall be constructed at compile time.  Any decimal literal type, regardless of sign.  This constructs the fixed point as a best approximation of the provided value.  A value that does not fit shall be truncated without warning.  If a constant value is used, the fixed point shall be constructed at compile time.
SFixed<I, F>
is constructable from:
 Any integer literal type, regardless of sign.  This constructs the fixed point as an integer with no fractional part.  A value that does not fit shall be truncated without warning.  If a constant value is used, the fixed point shall be constructed at compile time.
 A signed integer part and an unsigned fractional part.
 The integer part is of the smallest type capable of representing
I + 1
bits.  The fractional part is of the smallest type capable of representingF
bits.  If constant values are used, the fixed point shall be constructed at compile time.  Any decimal literal type, regardless of sign.  This constructs the fixed point as a best approximation of the provided value.  A value that does not fit shall be truncated without warning.  If a constant value is used, the fixed point shall be constructed at compile time.
Casts:
UFixed<I, F>

I

UFixed

may be converted toUFixed<8, 8>
and vice versa.
SFixed<I, F>
is explicitly convertible to:
float
.double
. The smallest signed type capable of holding its integer part. I.e. a type of at least
