This article presents a generator of floating-point exponential operators targeting recent FPGAs with embedded memories and DSP blocks. A single-precision operator consumes just one DSP block, 18Kbits of dual-port memory, and 392 slices on Virtex-4. For larger precisions, a generic approach based on polynomial approximation is used and proves more resource-efficient than the literature. For instance a double-precision operator consumes 5 BlockRAM and 12 DSP48 blocks on Virtex-5, or 10 M9k and… CONTINUE READING
