# cirq.big_endian_int_to_bits¶

cirq.big_endian_int_to_bits(val: int, *, bit_count: int) → List[int][source]

Returns the big-endian bits of an integer.

Parameters
• val – The integer to get bits from. This integer is permitted to be larger than 2**bit_count (in which case the high bits of the result are dropped) or to be negative (in which case the bits come from the 2s complement signed representation).

• bit_count – The number of desired bits in the result.

Returns

The bits.

Examples

>>> cirq.big_endian_int_to_bits(19, bit_count=8)
[0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 1, 1]

>>> cirq.big_endian_int_to_bits(19, bit_count=4)
[0, 0, 1, 1]

>>> cirq.big_endian_int_to_bits(-3, bit_count=4)
[1, 1, 0, 1]
