Floating Point (FP) addition, subtraction and multiplication are widely used in large set of scientific and signal processing computation. A high speed floating point double precision adder/subtractor and multiplier are implemented on a Virtex-6 FPGA. In addition, the proposed designs are compliant with IEEE-754 format and handles over flow, under flow, rounding and various exception conditions. The adder/subtractor and multiplier designs achieved the operating frequencies of 363.76MHz and 414.714MHz with an area of 660 and 648 slices respectively.
