Because of the growing importance of decimal floating-point (DFP) arithmetic, specifications for it are included in the IEEE Draft Standard for Floating-point Arithmetic (IEEE P754). In this paper, we present a novel algorithm and hardware design for a DFP adder. The adder performs addition and subtraction on 64-bit operands that use the IEEE P754 binary(More)
Because of the growing importance of decimal floating-point (DFP) arithmetic, specifications for it were recently added to the draft revision of the IEEE 754 Standard (IEEE P754). In this paper, we present a hardware design for a rounding unit for 64-bit DFP numbers (decimal64) that use the IEEE P754 binary encoding of DFP numbers, which is widely known as(More)
