    VHDL : 'Integer' range and its use

    Hello, I know that integer's range is upto 2^31 - 1. But does this condition apply to the every number in the equation that would result in an integer ? e.g. signal factor : integer ; begin factor <= (2**48) / (300E6) ; factor_bin <= conv_std_logic_vector (factor,20); 2**48 is...
