Hi,

 

I am working on the ADSP21489 EZ-Kit.

The datasheet says that this processor is capable of working not only with 32-bit floating point formats but also with 40-bit as well.

I found the following discussion on a forum, but this discussion was quite some time ago:

So ;y auestion is -- in the case of our particular SHARC part (fourth generation) and the latest development tools, is it still true that we can only access 40-bit through assembly language, or can we access this with compiled languages now?

 

Thank you  for your help,

Marc
