 Summary ```#include <80c517.h> float asin517 ( float x); /* number to calculate arc sine of */ ``` Description The asin517 function calculates the arc sine of the floating-point number x. Note This routine uses the arithmetic unit of the Infineon C517x/C509 to provide accelerated execution speed. Do not use this routine with a CPU that does not support this feature. Return Value The asin517 function returns the arc sine of x. For x ∈ [-1, 1], asin517(x) → [-π/2, π/2]. For x ∈ (-∞, -1) ∪ (1, ∞), asin517(x) → NaN. See Also Example ```#include <80c517.h> #include /* for printf */ void tst_asin (void) { float x; float y; for (x = -1.0; x <= 1.0; x += 0.1) { y = asin517 (x); printf ("ASIN517(%f) = %f\n", x, y); } } ```
