Yes! Absolutely interested!
I use fixed-point extensively with hard real-time microcontroller systems.
I am particularly interested in stuff like a 7.8 and 15.16 signed split.

I always use signed fixed-point and always use a split right
down the middle of the representation. It keeps the math simple
and fast.

Good luck with this project. Looking forward to it.
I will look into the prelim code later.

Thank you, Vicente.
Best regards, Chris.
