Question: How can I perform calculations using binary representation of numbers with fixed precision?

I have a need to calculate base 2 math as would be done in an integrated circuit. Math will be done using 15 bit 2's complement mantissa and 8 bit exponent. (the exponent is always assumed to be negative) We need to perform multiplication and addition, where each internal operation is represented by such a number.

The goal is to best represent the errors associated with such calculations and export the resulting code to a hardware description language for implementation on an integrated circuit.

Is there a package in Maple that can do that? Any advice on how te proceed?
