Sin table and verilog

  1. Jan 22, 2006 #1
    How do I use two 8-bit sine table to make one 16-bit sine table?

    Here is my 8-bit sine table in verilog

    char sintable[256]
    for(int i=0;i<256;i++)

    I know I have to somehow use: sin(theta+ delta*theta)

    theta would be the first 8-bit and delta*theta would be the last 8 bit. Combine and u get 16-bit.

    also, how do you convert a sine table to a cosine table? I want to instaniate a sine table module and then somehow convert it into a cosine.

    What are you trying to do? You can't make a 16-bit resolution something out of two 8-bit somethings. Two 8-bit somethings makes a 9-bit something.

    Well, in radians:
    So switching between the two isn't that hard.
    Of course, you'll have to adjust that to compensate for how many tics you'll be using per quarter arc.
