decimalToBinaryVector

Convert decimal value to binary vector

Description

example

binVal = decimalToBinaryVector(decimalNumber) converts a positive decimal number to a binary vector, represented using the minimum number of bits.

example

binVal = decimalToBinaryVector(decimalNumber,numberOfBits) converts a decimal number to a binary vector with the specified number of bits.

example

binVal = decimalToBinaryVector(decimalNumber,numberOfBits,bitOrder) converts a decimal number to a binary vector with the specified number of bits in the specified bit ordering.

binVal = decimalToBinaryVector(decimalNumber,[],bitOrder) converts a decimal number to a binary vector with default number of bits in the specified bit ordering.

Input Arguments

collapse all

The number to convert to a binary vector specified as a positive integer scalar.

Data Types: single | double | int8 | int16 | int32 | int64 | uint8 | uint16 | uint32 | uint64

The number of bits required to correctly represent the decimal. This is an optional argument. If you do not specify the number of bits, the number is represented using the minimum number of bits needed. By default minimum number of bits needed to represent the value is specified, unless you specify a value

Bit order for the binary vector representation, specified as a character vector or string. Accepted values are:

  • 'MSBFirst' — The first element of the binary vector is the most significant bit.

  • 'LSBFirst' — The first element of the binary vector is the least significant bit.

Data Types: char | string

Output Arguments

collapse all

Binary value, returned as a double array of 1s and 0s.
