In 1959 J. E. Volder presents a new algorithm for the real time solution of the equations raised in navigation system. This algorithm was the best replacement of analog navigation system by the digital. CORDIC algorithm used for the fast calculation of elementary functions like multiplication, division, trigonometric functions, logarithmic function, and various conversions like conversion of rectangular to polar coordinate, conversion between BCD and binary coded information. In the present time CORDIC algorithm have a number of applications in the field of communication, 3-D graphics, signal processing and a lot more.
