In this Letter, we study the reconstruction of digital holograms of microscopic objects using a fixed-point representation of the numercial-reconstruction process. For different bit levels in our fixed-point reconstruction algorithm, we investigate the errors introduced to both the reconstructed image intensity and the unwrapped quantitative phase information. Experimental results based on a microscopic lens array are provided.
