What exactly are you trying to do? Is this for a class? If so, we can't do your homework for you. If this is not for class, please ask us a question directly rather than leave us to read an article. I have learned 2's compliment (and skimming the article, the logic gates and such) but I do not want to reread it so I can answer your question.

I'd love to help you, but ask a more direct question.

Thanks :)

Hi,
Thx for your reply.

How to convert a two's complement to sum of signed power of two terms?
sum of signed power of two terms is similar to canonical signed digit.
This conversion is usually done to reduce the number of nonzero digits in the two's complement.
