In this paper, the authors present energy efficient fused multiply add for multimedia applications. Low cost, low power and high performance factors diddle the design of many microprocessors directed to the low-power figuring market. The floating point unit occupies a significant percentage of the silicon area in a microprocessor due to its wide data bandwidth and the area occupied by the multiply array. The fused floating-point multiply-add unit is utilitarian for Digital Signal Processing (DSP) applications such as Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) and Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT).
