Title: FLOATING POINT DATA COMPRESSION/COMPRESSOR
Abstract:
A computer-implemented method includes reading at least two thirty two-bit floating point values, converting the at least two floating point values to at least two thirty two-bit unsigned integer values, and storing the at least two unsigned integer values serially in a memory location of a memory device. The computer-implemented method further includes parsing each of the at least two unsigned integer values into four bytes, and rearranging first bytes of the at least two unsigned integer values in series in a first memory location, second bytes of the at least two unsigned integer values in series in a second memory location, third bytes of the at least two unsigned integer values in series in a third memory location, and fourth bytes of the at least two unsigned integer values in series in a fourth memory location. The computer-implemented method further includes compressing the rearranged bytes.
