Fixed-Width Multipliers and Multipliers-Accumulators With Min-Max Approximation Error

Abstract

Fixed-width multipliers have two n-bits operands and produce an approximate n-bits results for their product. These multipliers discard part of the partial products matrix, to reduce hardware cost, and employ extra correction functions to reduce approximation error. While previous papers mainly focus on average error metrics (like mean-square error), we… (More)
