guest blog: 4 Tips for using floating point computations in firmware guest

Kenneth 4 Tips

May 8, 2015 – featured 4 Tips for Firmware Floating Point Computations by Kenneth MacCallum, PEng, Principal Engineering Physicist at Starfish Medical. Using floating point computations in firmware used to require too heavy a penalty in code space and computation time to be included in most medical devices.  Thanks to relatively inexpensive microcontrollers which have single-precision floating point capabilities implemented in hardware, StarFish includes floating point computations in much of the firmware we design for a variety of medical devices.

Kenneth provides 4 recommendations for coding and debugging floating point calculations in Digital Health and ultrasound applications.
