In digital hardware, binary numbers are represented as either fixed-point or floating-point data types. Understanding how different data types are defined and represented in hardware can help you to choose data types that are appropriate for your application.
Overview of measurement scales and representing numbers.
Fixed-point hardware can provide benefits in size and power consumption, memory usage, speed, and cost.
