The arithmetic circuits are the most fundamental blocks which are used to build DSP hardware. Traditionally, Digital Signal Processing (DSP) is performed using fixed-point or integer arithmetic. Use of floating-point arithmetic provides a large dynamic range. Floating-point representation is able to retain its resolution and accuracy compared to fixed-point representations. Unfortunately, floating point operators require excessive area (or time) for conventional implementations. Here, the authors introduce a pipeline floating point Arithmetic Logic Unit (ALU). Pipeline is used to give high performance and throughput to arithmetic operation.
