I need a function to truncate a SIGNED vector efficiently

Hi Folks

I am trying to find a function that can truncate a VHDL SIGNED vector efficiently. In other words, trim the extra sign-bit duplicates (if existing) then truncate the SINGED vector to a given new length.

For example :

If the input vector that needs to be efficiently truncated is:


After trimming it should look like this:

And if we want to truncate it to only 2 bits, the final result should look like this:

This allows for better truncation precision.
