This paper presents a multiplier that operates on binary integer decimal (BID) encoded decimal floating-point (DFP) numbers. It uses a single binary multiplier with carry-save feedback for both significand multiplication and rounding, and it is compliant with the IEEE 754-2008 Standard. Optimizations decrease the BID multiplier's area and critical path… CONTINUE READING
