Computes 2^x using a fast polynomial approximation.


This module computes 2^x for fractional input values. The input is in Q6.26 and the output is in Q16.16. The module uses a polynomial based approximation to the pow2() function and the result is accurate to within 0.04 dB (when you look at the result on a db20 scale). The maximum error occurs for very small input values. Over most of the usable range the error is within 0.004 dB.
