Redundant-Digit Floating-Point Addition Scheme Based on a Stored Rounding Value

Due to the widespread use and inherent complexity of floating-point addition, much effort has been devoted to its speedup via algorithmic and circuit techniques. We propose a new redundant-digit representation for floating-point numbers that leads to computation speedup in two ways: (1) Reducing the per-operation latency when multiple floating-point… CONTINUE READING
