    I need to make a divider to divide a 16 bit number by 8 or 16 (only one of the 2 possibilities, I shall make choose 8 if the divider is Much much simpler for this case). The output can be a decimal too right? How does the divider work than? Any suggestions?

    Think microcontroller and c. Why not the arduino. ( if we knew why you were doing this you might get a better answer. Hardware for the arduino is about 20 bucks us + some infra structure )

    Are you asking about hardware or software?

    Have you any application in mind?

    Shifting is the first thing, as already suggested, that comes to mind. But do you know (sorry for this) what that is at all?
