A 16.bit unsigned integer is 16.bit wide.
Is the corresponding width signed integer 16.bit or 15.bit?
A 16-bit 2's-complement signed integer would have a value range from
-32767 to 32768. The high bit would indicate whether it is positive or
negative; a negative value would be the inverse of it's absolute value,
plus one. Thus, -1 would be 1111111111111111, -32767 would be
1000000000000000, and 0 would be 0000000000000000 for both negative and
