# How to do bitwise complement on a 16-bit signal using Python?

PythonProgramming

If you want to get an inversion of only first 16 bits of a number, you can take a xor of that number with 65535(16 1s in binary).

## example

a = 3 # 11 in binary
b = a ^ 65535
print(bin(b))

## Output

This will give the output −
