>From the Matlab doc:
'
intout = bitshift(A,k)
intout = bitshift(A,k,assumedtype)
Description

example

intout = bitshift(A,k) returns A shifted to the left by k bits,
equivalent to multiplying by 2k. Negative values of k correspond to
shifting bits right or dividing by 2|k| and rounding to the nearest
integer towards negative infinity. Any overflow bits are truncated.?'

So the equivalent would be:

>>> typeBits =?FCF >> 9
