Multiplication is one of the common arithmetic operations in Digital Signal Processing (DSP) computations. The proposed design is an implementation of an IEEE-754 double precision floating point multiplier, which is better when compared to a single precision multiplier because of its wider dynamic ranges and accuracy. A double precision multiplier is designed using Xilinx 12.4 ISE tool and the design verification was done on Xilinx Vertex-4 ML403 platform which handles overflow, underflow cases and truncation mode.
