Operator RND

The operator RND performs a right shift with rounding and clipping to the output bit width. The number of bits to round is specified with parameter bits2Round.

Round half away from zero is the implemented rounding method. Color components are rounded separately.


  • Input = 4 Bit unsigned, Input Value = 7, bits2Round = 2

    Output = 2 Bit unsigned, Output Value = 2

  • Input = 5 Bit signed, Input Value = -13, bits2Round = 2

    Output = 3 Bit signed, Output Value = -3

  • Input = 4 Bit unsigned, Input Value = 15, bits2Round = 2

    Output = 2 Bit unsigned, Output Value = 3 Note: The output has been clipped to the maximum possible value.

The bit width at the output is the input bit width minus parameter value of bits2round.


Type static parameter
Default 0

[0, BitWidth(I)-1] for unsigned

(BitWidth(I) - bits2Round > 1) for signed

This parameter defines by how many bits the input is shifted to the right.
