Decimal to binary two's complement

Solved!

Hello!

I want to convert a decimal number (from -32768 to 32767) into a 16 bits Binary two's complement.

Any suggestion? 

Thank you in advance!

What is the datatype of the "decimal number"? A I16 numeric integer? A decimal string?

What output do you want? (binary string? I16 numeric?) What is the byte order? 

 

It always helps to attach a small VI containing your input in a diagram constant to avoid ambiguities. Thanks!

Hi,

I have a dac714 which is designed to accept binary two’s complement input codes with the MSB first. The output voltage range I want to obtain is ±5 V. What I am doing is to convert voltage values (DBL control, so that the user can select the desired voltage) into decimal values from -32768 to 32767 (DBL). What i want to get is a 1D array of boolean that goes in a digital output of my  usb 6211 and then into the dac.

I hope I was clear.

(I don't attach my VI because this is a small part of a very crowded one, I try to simplify it and attach later a simpler version)

 

Thank you

Here is a simpler version of what I did so far. The conversion here is from digital to binary, what I wish is from digital to binary two's complement.

Your code makes absolutely no sense.

 

Maybe this can give you some ideas.

Stupid question: Why not just use an Analog Output on the USB-6211?  Or is the DAC714 the UUT?
