What is a Racelogic 32-bit Float?

Racelogic 32 bit float numbers are used in the CAN communications between input modules and VBOX units.

This format is also used for the representation of channel data from input modules in the VBOX serial data stream.

A 32 bit number YYYY can be split it into four bytes, the first byte is a signed exponent and the next three are a signed mantissa.

e.g. if YYYY = 0x03 0x12 0x11 0x00 this equates to exponent = 0x03

mantissa = 0x121100 or 1184000 decimal

Therefore the value is 1.184000E03
