Is there support for half-precision floating point on the nRF52832? Either Keil or GCC.

Hi,

The nRF52832 uses the ARM Cortex M4 processor with floating-point unit (FPU). The FPU implemented supports Single-precision floating-point. This will give you more precision compared to a half-precision floating-point solution. The FPU provides floating-point computation functionality that is compliant with the IEEE 754 standard.
