High-speed multioperand decimal adders

  title={High-speed multioperand decimal adders},
  author={Robert D. Kenney and Michael J. Schulte},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Computers},
There is increasing interest in hardware support for decimal arithmetic as a result of recent growth in commercial, financial, and Internet-based applications. Consequently, new specifications for decimal floating-point arithmetic have been added to the draft revision of the IEEE-754 Standard for floating-point arithmetic. This paper introduces and analyzes three techniques for performing fast decimal addition on multiple binary coded decimal (BCD) operands. Two of the techniques speculate BCD… CONTINUE READING
