As the dimensions and operating voltages of computer electronics shrink to cope with consumers' demand for higher performance and lower power consumption, circuit sensitivity to soft errors increases dramatically. Recently, a new data-type is proposed in the literature called posit data type. Posit arithmetic has absolute advantages such as higher numerical accuracy, speed, and simpler hardware design than IEEE 754–2008 technical standard-compliant arithmetic. In this paper, we propose a… Expand
