Applied Signal Processing’s Q-Sense™ Plug-in for Texas Instruments Code Composer Studio™ (CCS) makes fixed point code development and debugging easier and more intuitive. A Code Composer Studio™ plug-in is a software tool that integrates with, extends and/or customizes the Texas Instruments Code Composer Studio™ integrated development environment.
What is a Q-Type? The Q-type of a variable defines the number of implied fractional bits within the 16-bit (or 32-bit) fixed point raw representation of a value. This allows the raw native fixed point number to represent a real-life or floating point value. For example, a Q15 number has 15 implied fractional bits. A Q15 variable of raw value 4096 represents the value 4096/215 = 0.125. Unfortunately, normal emulator debugging tools don’t know about the Q-type of your variables and therefore can only show its raw native value.
