Number of bits: int

Integer bit length for test hardware

Model Configuration Pane: Hardware Implementation


Specify the integer bit length of the hardware that you use to test code.

Selecting a device by using the Device vendor and Device type parameters sets a device-specific value for this parameter.


This parameter is enabled only if you can modify it for the selected hardware.


32 (default) | 8 | 16 | 24

The character word length must be an integer multiple of 8 that is less than or equal to 32. Different devices have different settings available for this parameter.
