Hello,

Has anybody had any experience with the IEEE floating point library
specifically those at:

http://www.eda.org/fphdl/

Has anybody tried to synthesize them and how does one convert from fixed
point to floating point?
Thanks in advance.


Salman

Not until I clicked on that link.

Well, the link above says that only this package
is synthesizable:

http://www.eda.org/fphdl/vhdl/fphdl_base_pkg.vhd
http://www.eda.org/fphdl/vhdl/fphdl_base_pkg_body.vhd

The package contains conversion functions fp_to_<type>.
