Low-power radix-4 divider

  title={Low-power radix-4 divider},
  author={Alberto Nannarelli and Tom{\'a}s Lang},
This work describes the design of a double-precision radix-8 divider. Low-power techniques are applied in the design of the unit, and energy-delay tradeoffs considered. The energy dissipation in the divider can be reduced by up to 70% with respect to a standard implementation not optimized for energy, without penalizing the latency. The radix-8 divider is compared with one obtained by overlapping three radix-2 stages and with a radix-4 divider. Results show that the latency of our divider is… CONTINUE READING
